New IT System – Retail & Point of Sale

$2,145 of $4,749 raised


Support us in implementing a new Point of Sale (POS) and retail inventory IT system that will improve how we administer and operate key areas of the Institute. Currently, the Institute encounters productivity inefficiencies due to manual processes and outdated IT systems.

We now have the opportunity to pause during the COVID-19 downtime and realise the many benefits that come with improving our business systems, and ultimately in spreading Dharma. The new POS and retail system will support us in reducing our operating costs, simplifying how we serve you and our other visitors and centralising how we manage the different operational aspects of the Institute. This initiative began in collaboration with NextZen Accounting in June 2020 in order to enhance the financial management of the Institute.

Business systems specialist, Sam Macauley, is freely offering his time to support the Institute in the advisory, scoping and implementation of the new system. Sam has an extensive background working in public and private sectors in IT consulting in Australia and overseas.

Moving to the new systems will enable us to:

– track and manage inventory data, thereby streamlining stock management
– accurately track sales at the Cafe, Art Centre and Retail Shop as a single entity
– better support Chenrezig’s administration team with an easy-to-learn system and data
– make it quick and easy to serve our visitors and to take payments at the Cafe, Art Centre and Retail Shop
– reduce operating costs and improve resource productivity


We are kindly requesting $4,748.92 to fund the new system. Your donation will help provide the necessary hardware to complete this project, including iPads, payment readers and cash drawers.
