Newsagency software rental of $185.00 a month preserves capital for these small business retailers


In Mid 2019, newsagency software company Tower Systems released a rental option for its software. For $185.00 a month, newsagents can rent the Tower newsagency specific software.

The newsagency software rental option is available without a long-term or lock-in contract. It is for the full newsagency software including newspaper and magazine distribution. It includes access to the software on as many computers as a business needs in its location, for no additional charge.

The Australian made and supported Tower Systems newsagency software serves home delivery, sub agent and retail management requirements. The software continues to evolve, with updates released every few months. It integrates with TheLott, Epay, Tyro, Xero, MYOB, Shopify, Magento, WooCommerce, the banks, ZipPay, Humm, XchangeIT and more.

The software also includes access to the federal governments debit card as Tower Systems is a long-standing member of the trial software panel, involved early on in that project.

1,750 newsagents already use the Tower newsagency software in Australia.

Using the Tower Systems software, newsagents are able to comprehensively track business performance at the category, individual product, staff member and supplier level.

It is at the supplier performance level where the software can help guide valuable commercial outcomes. For example, one business recently overhauled their card department based on data captured and curated by the Tower software. Several months on, card sales are up 30% year on year while at the same time space allocated to cards was cut 20%. This move freed space for a new product category, which itself is driving traffic and revenue.

Rental of the software is $185.00 for each 30 days. It can be cancelled at any time.

To help newsagents through Covid, Tower made all additional one-on-one training for customers free, cancelled plans to increase support fees, provided financial help for hardship situations, eliminated credit card surcharges and provided a free software licence for home access to every customer.

In addition to developing and supporting newsagency software, Tower Systems also develops POS software connected websites for newsagents. Here are some of the newsagency business websites developed by the Tower web team:
