Has your newsagency ever been audited by Ovato? If it has, you may recall a period of stress as you dealt with their information requests while feeling like you have done something wrong, feeling criminal.
The thing is, Ovato controls what newsagents are sent. They receive sales data daily. They receive returns data weekly.
If there is an issue, they would see it in the data.
Scanned based trading, newsagents paying for what they sell, would fix any data issue. Establishing scanned based trading with approved ‘locked’ software packages could provide a time saver for all involved in the compliance side of magazine sales in newsagencies.
