Welcome to the following New Store

DPS EFTPOS Integration

Do you want to use your POS on a hand-held device, like an iPad?

We are now testing our recent integration with DPS.
Like Circle, it is cloud based and has the potential to operate as a held-held POS. Find out more here!

International Agency

To remedy the ongoing issue of International Agency stores have proposed entering Int-US as the agent for USA suppliers and Int-UK for UK suppliers, then changing the local distributor to your preferred option.

If there is a Local Agency for a publisher they should be set as the Agency, then adjust the International Distributor on a case-by-case basis.

Beta Test Requests, New Features & What's Next

New feature: An option to display Open Invoices in Accounts (Video 0:58).

To ensure new features are working correctly and your staff are aware of software changes, please test the following on beta:

  • Add a Consignment Billing option to Accounts Payable (Video 5:48).
  • New interface to set distributor for items when ordering (Video 2:43).
  • Rails 4.2 system upgrade (Video 1:33).

In the coming month we are aiming to complete the Rails 4.2 upgrade, automated consignment billing through the POS, and the DPS EFTPOS integration.
