There are 140,000 small retailers in Australia that may need a computerised point-of-sale (POS) system, and a good number of them are computer resellers. This is according to Quicken's product manager for QuickPOS, Michael Wills.
Quicken is currently conducting a national roadshow targeted at PC sellers, POS resellers, trainers and accountants, and Wills pointed out that it's not just to recruit QuickPOS resellers. "Small computer retailers could benefit from the information that is presented about the changes to the marketplace," he said.
Wills spoke about the legislative changes affecting retailers, including electronic tax reporting and all the implications of the GST. "All retailers, including computer resellers, will need a computer-based system by July next year," he claimed.
The divide between computer resellers and specialist POS resellers is in the understanding of the retail environment. "Very few computer resellers, even retailers, understand concepts like open departments or fixed-price lookup keys," Wills said.
