The Australian Financial Review yesterday reported on a Christmas Eve It outage for the Myer department store. The AFR report points to issues related to PC-EFTPOS. This is a bridge commonly used when connecting POS software to a bank.
With many hundreds of newsagents using Tyro it’s worth noting that PC-EFTPOS is a competitor (with banks) to Tyro. Typically newsagents with an integrated Suncorp or St George or similar bank issued terminal will connect through PC-EFTPOS.
Myer competitors not affected by the outage benefited.
