1618c“Most job ads don’t get the desired response, and leave managers feeling frustrated”

Excellent Rostering & Staff Scheduling System with Realtime Costing

Straight from the Profitable Hospitality:

Many operators are still using pen and paper or a spreadsheet to do the rostering – it’s not enough to ttrack costs as they happen and streamline communication with staff.

The system we currently recommend is >>> FindMyShift, for its simplicity, low cost (a monthly fee not per-person) and the wide range of information it provides. You can test it with a 30 day free trial – what have you got to lose?

Retailers urge govt to follow in U.S footsteps

Latest News from RetailBiz.Com.Au -Follow what U.S. Did!

ARA executive director Russell Zimmerman believes it is time for the Australian government to also act on the issue of tax-free online shopping, and says a reduction of the Low Value Imports Threshold (LVIT) would prevent erosion of state GST resources. This lower of the LVIT threshold would also enable the collection of GST on parcels below $1000 as well as from overseas suppliers.

“Reducing the LVIT is a simple and economically beneficial solution which needs to be implemented without delay, and the ARA looks forward to continuing to work alongside the Government to implement a lowering of the threshold which will help Australian retailers remain globally competitive,” he said.

Omni-channel retailing and affiliate marketing

Scott Allan From RetailBiz.Com.Au Talks about Omni-Channel Retailing and Affiliate Marketing:

The smart retailer with an omni-channel strategy will make sure that each online and offline destination the customer visits is consistent and reflects where the consumer is at in the decision process. This way, the retailer can present the right offer at the right time through the right channel on the right platform.

The rise of the omni-channel retailer has resulted in a new category of consumers known as omni-channel shoppers. Omni-channel shoppers use all of the available online and offline channels simultaneously to conduct research, find the best deal and make their purchases in the way that’s most convenient for them.  Affiliate sites today — fashion sites, blogs, loyalty sites and coupon sites — are a key stop on the path to purchase.
