Movember - Lets do this!

Monday, 6 November 2017 by Jo Coles

Movember – Lets do this!

It is that time of the year again. Brownie points have been cashed in, favours negotiated and permission granted! The Men of Intersoft are doing MOvember, much to the irritation of their partners and family members! This year it is even bigger than before with the Brisbane office laying down the challenge to the Napier office to see who can produce not only the best of follicle fashion, but also who can raise the most money for Men's health.

So far... and we are only a couple of days into the month … we have raised over $1,500 for this great cause.

We are sure that most of you will have been affected at some point by issues relating to Men’s physical and mental health. A donation will go on to help prevent these issues in the future. To make your donation, you can donate here to the MoPOWER Connect team or https://moteam.co/mopower-connect to see individual team members and their updates and progress.

Please support this great initiative, and thank you to those that have already donated.

Business Layer Help Options

Tuesday, 14 February 2017 by Martin Elsworth

From finPOWER Connect version 2.03.00, Business Layer help is included with the finPOWER Connect installation. This means that the separate help file that was previously supplied is no longer required.

Business Layer help is always available from the Script code page, but the best enhancement is context sensitive help. It is now possible to directly access help for a specific method, function or object without having to search for it.

Commerce Commission media release – Mobile trader pleads guilty to disclosure failures in contracts

Wednesday, 25 January 2017 by Jo Coles

Mobile trader pleads guilty to disclosure failures in contracts

Mobile trader Best Buy Limited (Best Buy) has pled guilty to 16 charges relating to the operation of its door-to-door sales business in Auckland and smaller North Island towns.

The charges were filed under the Credit Contracts and Consumer Finance Act 2003 (CCCFA). Eleven charges (between 6 June 2015 and 28 April 2016) relate to failing to disclose the required information to its customers about their consumer credit contracts before the contract was entered into. Many of Best Buy’s consumer credit contracts failed to disclose important information such as an accurate statement of the amount or number of payments needed, an accurate statement of the debtor’s cancellation rights, and the right to apply for hardship relief.

Five charges (between 6 June 2015 and 31 October 2015) relate to a contract clause which was likely to mislead customers into thinking Best Buy had a right to repossess goods when it did not, failing to meet disclosure standards under the CCCFA.

Best Buy will be sentenced later this year.
