A Point of sale system or Point of Failure system

POS SOFTWARE

What are you going to have this year "A Point of sale system" or a "Point of Failure system". 

 

Remember something like this.

 

It would have cost a lot in goodwill as well as money.

Now, it is essential to check that all the equipment you propose to use over the Christmas period is working? This is particularly true of some of the old POS machines that people bring out of the cupboard at present. Please check them to make sure it all works? Furthermore, check the cables. Equally important that your Internet connections are where you need it? I suggest you try it all out now.

Have you tested all your system, now before Christmas day hits? 

How much does someone want to bet with me that several of our clients, on the busiest days of the years, when computer engineers, if you can get them even on double and triple time, will be called out to fix problems that should have been checked and fixed now!

You want anything working over the coming season.

Christmas trade outlook this year

POS SOFTWARE

It is getting to the time of year when many of my clients will do a major part of their trade this year. I hope you have prepared. Among your other tasks, you will need now to make sure your stock ordering is right. This is something our point of sale can help you. You will also need to look into your staff levels again something our point of sale can help you with this too.


Overall, the Australian economy now is moving forward but only marginally.

 

 

In comparison, this is what it looks like on 4 Oct 2017.

 

The figures are roughly the same as the pluses and minus cancelling each other out. For example, the interest rates now are a bit lower but people have fewer savings because Australians are paying off debt rather than spending.

We are in the black (which is better than many countries), our major trading partners are growing, but their growth rates are down, so that does not look good for the future. It would be nice if we got some good exports going, we could use the money. 

There are signs that do appear to show that the yearly growing interest in Christmas trend is static.


Measured interest using Data Source: Google Trends (www.google.com/trends)."

What is still apparent is that the trend of a long Christmas season is continuing, two years ago when I measured it, it was about 6-7 weeks starting in mid-December, now it started in late November and you can expect it to continue to late January about 8-9 weeks period.
