News from Tower Systems about locally made POS software for specialty local retailers.

Our Lightspeed POS and Vend POS software alternative attracts new customers


We are grateful to retailers who have used Lightspeed POS and vend POS software who are considering our Tower Systems POS software on the back of being told that they would face additional charges if they do not use the Lightspeed Payments platform for customer payments.

Here’s a short video about our alternative to Vend and Lightspeed for retailers frustrated by their decision to charge extra if you choose to not use their payments platform …

We don’t run a payments platform, we’re a POS software company. We leave all that to the banks.

We link to the big 4 banks via Linkly as well and direct to Tyro and to SmartPay if you like their fee-free EFTPOS solution.

If you’re looking for an alternative POS software solution to Lightspeed and / or Vend, we’d love to learn more about your needs, to see if our software could be a good solution. Our promise is – we will tell you if we think we’re not right for you. This is important as it’s critical you do your research into what is right for your business.

We have successfully tested our Vend POS data conversion software that brings across Vend inventory data, including variants.
