PC-EFTPOS News

‘Australia’s leading provider of integrated EFTPOS solutions’

Welcome to the April and May edition of PC-EFTPOS news.  We are a little late in getting this out so will combine the two months and blame it on overindulging on chocolate over Easter.

In April many people enjoyed the rare opportunity to take 10 days off work for only 3 days of leave.  We hope that whatever you chose to do over this time that you had an enjoyable Easter.  The Easter trading season is one of importance to many of our customers and the National Retail Association was predicting that Australians would spend $3.4 billion nationwide this year.  Food and beverage sales were predicted to be strong as was the travel industry.  Here’s hoping it was a good month for your businesses.

Both the NRL and AFL seasons are well under way and tipping has been a nightmare.  Both competitions are incredibly close and at this stage it’s very hard to predict who the best teams are.

Please enjoy the newsletter and if you would like to feature in a future edition please get in touch.  We love to share information with our readers and support our customers where possible.
