Thanks Coke


Thanks to the generosity of the Coca Cola company our kitchen now boasts a spanking new Coke fridge. This will hold Coke and other products from the company which are available to team members for quenching thirst through the day.

We work with Coke on a number of levels and in a variety of channels so stocking their products in-house was a natural extension.

Like our top of the line Nespresso coffee machine, having Coke, a good range of food (including healthy options) and a range of teas and other beverages is important in a busy software company.

Seeking a new web developer


We have advertised for a web developer for a new role we have crested in our business.  we want to expand our skills in a range of web related areas and look forward to bringing on someone appropriately skilled and motivated to further enhance our online offering.

Adding a software development position


We are advertising for another experienced software developer to expand our development team.  With a strong pipeline of development requirements for our plans and the needs of new customers we need the extra resource to help us achieve this.

Adding to our team


Communication is vital for any software company but even more so for a company which serves small and independent retailers. This is why we have created a new communications role in the company. By new role we really do mean new. This is a role unlike any other we have had previously. It will play a key role in how we communicate … across multiple platforms from the traditional to the non traditional.

We have received an excellent pool of candidates and have commenced reviewing these.  Our hope is to start interviews next week with the new candidate to be on board by mid February.

Once in place, the new role will enable us to better communicate with our existing customers and to better reach out to prospective customers. It will better focus our relevance and share our narrative.

Creating a new role, adding to the head count, is a good measure not only of how business is going for us but also of how we expect business to go. we are excited for the opportunities this new role will bring.

Expanding programming resources


We are thrilled to have found a senior developer to join our Delphi software development team.  This new hire will expand our capacity and skills to enable us to better serve existing as well as new customers.

With considerable development commitments already made for 2012 adding to the team has been a priority for us.

New POS Software Help Desk role advertised


We have placed an ad at for a new customer service role we are creating here at Tower Systems.  We have promoted the new role opportunity among our customer community in the hope of finding someone to join us.   This did not uncover any candidates so we have now advertised widely.

We made the decision to add this role to maintain our position of being over-resourced.  We continue to grow our customer base and like to maintain spare capacity on our customer service team.

Our hope is that we will have the ideal candidate on board by the end of this month.
