How to switch from the POS Solutions newsagency software


Newsagents wanting to switch from the POS Solutions brand newsagency software – either the POS DOS software or the POS browser software – to our newsagency software can do so by contacting Tower Systems.  Our newsagency specialists can help convert data, switching this to the latest Tower Systems newsagency software.

Former POS Solutions users are welcome at Tower Systems with special training and assistance designed to ease the transition.  Since so many newsagents have made the transition we have an often used and well proven structured approach to assistance in making the move.

With the Tower Systems newsagency software having been chosen by more than 1,760 newsagents, the company has the largest newsagent user community out of all software companies serving the channel. This positions Tower well for navigating changes brought on by suppliers and other factors.

Newsagents considering a move from POS Solutions newsagency software to Tower Systems should contact Tower Systems for details of newsagents who have made the move.

Touchscreen layout helps newsagents with customer throughput


Thanks to the flexibility of our Point of Sale screen layout controls, newsagents using our newsagency software are able to create a touch screen layout which best suits their specific needs.

The photo shows one layout used by newsagents in New South Wales.  You can see hot buttons for specific products. Pressing these captures the sale of the latest edition of the newspaper or magazine.  Newsagents can press the button or scan the item.

The layout management facilities in our software give newsagents excellent control over the layout of the Point of Sale screen.  This personalisation helps boost productivity and drive ownership of the Point of Sale screen by all who work in the business.  Being touch screen enabled, retailers are able to complete sales with a minimum of keystrokes and with excellent accuracy.
