Managing markups


Here’s the source of the poorly researched stories appearing around Australia about computer systems and markup.

Computer systems do not force business owners to charge more. Business owners set their pricing (for those items they can control price on) based on the operational costs of thier business and their profit goal.

It’s too convenient for ACA to blame the software raise questions about the ownership of the software as being the cause.

The game being played here is about the desire for Woolworths to get pharmacies into supermarkets. Woolworths will win.
