Melbourne Cup today

POS SOFTWARE

Our Melbourne Office is closed today but support will be done through our NSW office today plus you will have access to our after-hours support

Melbourne Cup 2017

If you are having a punt, I wish you good luck. Unfortunately, it looks like we will have some rain, which always mucks up the horse selection so I would not recommend making a selection until the course condition is clear.

Retail Express advertising

POS SOFTWARE

.A competitor of us Retail Express, who probably consider us their biggest competitor released many advertisements which we considered as being misleading and deceptive. For the full history of the matter click here 

ACCC_logo.png

When I first started blogging about it, it was just in frustration at Retail Express to fix the matter and the incredible refusal of the major search engines to even discuss the matter.  I was told to keep a record of the matter which I have been doing. So every month, I have to check what is happening and note it down. Since it is I believe a matter for the public, I have been doing that here.

Unfortunately, the page has grown so big, that I need to split the original page which is what I am doing.

So here is the second part.

4 July 2017

It appears that there has been a change in these dubious advertisements

Clearly they must see us as their major competitor

In google, they now put their name in it.

They also have added another search provider and again they have put their name on the top

 

On the other hand, they have dropped yahoo which maybe as their daily advertising budget for that is spent, or it may mean something more.

 

 

 

 

Is someone worried about what we consider quite dubious advertising.

 

Update:17 July 2017

These Retail Express advertisements that I consider to be disreputable and shameful have changed again. I am wondering that it must be worth much to them to steal our traffic in such a dodgy way. Have we really taken so many customers away from them because their latest advertisements are getting very close to us again.

Here you decide whether its misleading

 

 

August 2017 update

Well there are some changes to the current adverting by Retail Express in relation to this form of advertising, it looks like they are no longer using Bing and Yahoo for their advertising, is it Retail Express decision or Bing or Yahoo, I do not know but most PPC that use Bing also use Yahoo and Ask. As you can see nothing in Bing, Yahoo and Ask but the modified advertisements are still going out in Google.

 

 

 

 

Still it does appear that to others like Revel , vendhq and netsuite that POS Solutions are the ones to beat, if for example, I go to a listing of top point of sale companies and I enter in a few of them like Idealpos, I get this, not one of them is there.

 

 

Update 30/8/2017

Well as I stated it appears that several other point of sale software suppliers are using us as a keyword. Retail Express have not given up but they now appear to be making sure that it does not appear to be "passing on."

Vend's point of sale system, NetSuite , Revel Systems and pbsapos all use this form of advertising too. Here are some screenshoots

 

Update Oct 2017

Overall I was very pleased at first with this month report

If I do a google search "pos solutions australia", I get this, as you can see no retail express, no-one passing off.

 

Then I went to bing and did the same seach

 

Now what do you see? Retail Express heading states "Pos Solutions - Australian...." It is getting very close.

If I do a search with ASK.COM, I get

 

As you can see there is no passing off there.

What really annoys me, is if I put in google "retail express", I see no passing off at all

 

 

On a personal note, I think this is really wrong what is happening here.

 

October 2017 report

 

Well as you can see its not just retail express that are doing these advertisments in October. Checkout the fedeltapos, in the ASK.COM picture where you might looking for us and never realise that it was not us and so click on it. Please let me know what you think of these sort of advertising?

 

 

 

 

 

 

December 2017 report

Well for the first time since this began, I feel positive over this. Here are searches from google, yahoo, bing and Ask. As you can see they look kosher and halal. Why did retail express and others stop, I wish I knew.

Pet Shop Software on display at AusPet 2018

POS SOFTWARE

AusPet trade show 2018

Our Pet Shop management software considered the best in Australia will be on show at AusPet 2018 at the Gold Coast Convention Centre on Friday. It has more users than any other Pet Shop Software in Australia.

Its market share has also grown this year thanks to Pet Shops upgrading to our software. What I found interesting is that none of the old-time software companies that used to go to these fairs are there now. We are the last ones left. 

What at the fair, we will be showing off the very latest in Pet Shop software.

As what will be on display is the new software version that is not yet released so even if have our software it is your chance to see what is coming up. 

So if you do get to the fair, do visit our stand #128 and say hello. We are right at the exit so there is no excuse not to come and visit us.
