ABOUT US.
Tower Systems is a vertical market POS software company. That is, we sell software designed for specific retail channels. The home page of our website lists all the retail channels in which we serve at any time.

While we may sell/rent/lease our software to businesses outside the retail channels listed, it is rare and only when approved by the leadership team of the company.

We currently serve in excess of 3,000 small business retailers primarily in Australia and New Zealand.

We actively promote our software through direct mail, social media marketing, search engine ads, trade shows and, recently, on radio and TV.

WE ARE RETAILERS TOO.
We own and run three unique retail shops, offering us hands-on retail experience where we can test and refine our software. This has been particularly useful in workflow management where we have tuned our software for efficiency in counter-based retail.

Owning and running retail businesses enables us to provide a unique and valuable level of practical, retailer-focussed, advice to our customers.

ACCOUNTING LINKS AND SERVICES.
We have a full time CPA in the business as our CFO.

Our software is directly integrated with Xero. We are a Xero partner.

Our software also links with MYOB and Quicken through a third party product.

Our customers, through our help desk, have access to comp0lete support in the use of our software as well as practical advice on the correct linking of our software with accounting software. We help our customers achieve and maintain a seamless link.

Thank you for considering working with Tower Systems to empower small business retailers to run more efficient and successful businesses.

Tower Systems leadership role in POS software / supplier EDI engagement

Thanks to ou work across a range of retail channels and with several EDI platform partners Tower Systems brings to any EDI discussion broad experience and insights.

This was particularly useful recently when an EDI partner in one retail channel wanted to take an approach that we knew would not work as it disregarded best practice in EDI. We shared our experiences from another channel and our suggested approach is now being adpoted.

We’re not out to control anything in the EDI arena. No, our goal is to help retailers have access to best-practice EDI solutions that serve their needs and do not burden them with unnecessary operational overhead.

We are grateful to our various EDI partners for the experiences they are giving us for it is these experiences that help us be more knowledgable in the EDI area.

Tower Systems provides POS software users and suppliers with more EDI options

The release of the Sprint 3 EDI integration by Tower Systems increases the options available to the many retailers and their suppliers already using our Point of Sale software. Sprint 3 is an easily accessible EDI platform developed to serve retailers and suppliers in a range of channels. The Tower integration serves two-way traffic covering purchasing and invoicing.

Giving retailers and suppliers more options in the EDI area provides better customer service to the Tower community of retailers and their suppliers. It means that suppliers especially can shop around for the EDI platform that best suits their needs.

Our work with Sprint 3 in meeting their compliance standards is another example of Tower Systems leading in several channels in which it operates.

EDI is the glue between retailers and suppliers. In presenting options Tower Systems is facilitating competition and offering flexibility – a move welcomed by those who have become frustrated by EDI services in monopoly situations.

Tower Systems welcomes another EDI partner

Tower Systems is thrilled to partner with Sprint3, a mature and respected EDI platform.

Being certified with Sprint3 integration is another point of difference retailers using our Point of Sale software are able to rely on as they seek out new supplier partnerships and more efficient and reliable ways of conducting business.

Using Sprint3 in connection with a range of suppliers retailers will be able to export a purchase order and import an associated invoice. In addition to saving considerable time, the electronic connection will significantly reduce keystrokes and data mistakes.

This latest EDI integration from Tower Systems continues our leadership position in several specialist retail marketplaces.

Adding another EDI partner set to help POS software retailers

We are thrilled to be working with another national supplier, helping them to connect with retailers by way of electronic invoices to start and then other touchpoints.

As a long-term leader in the EDI space in a range of retail channels we are able to share knowledge and experiences to help suppliers connect with their retail partners.

We have a team in our business in place to facilitate these connections on behalf of our customers.
