The History of Ezylink: From OzBiz Solutions to ABCis

From OzBiz Solutions to ABCis: The History of Ezylink

The enduring effectiveness of the Ezylink software is due to its simplicity and ability to save businesses time. 

Ezylink was developed in the early 2000s by two frustrated small business owners in the New South Wales coastal town of Nambucca Heads. Their motivation? To solve the time-consuming task of manual data entry. 

A much-needed solution for retail 

As retail business owners, they were well aware of retail businesses’ accounting reporting and product inventory needs of retail businesses. Ezylink was developed to simplify and automate data transfer from point-of-sale (POS) systems to the correct data categories of accounting packages. 

OzBiz Solutions was founded to distribute Ezylink and continued to evolve the software over the next 15 years to keep up with modern POS and accounting technology advancements. Ezylink has helped clients across various retail organisations, including newsagents, jewellers, plant nurseries, pharmacies, hospitality, optometrists, fuel sites, and many other specialty areas.

Creating positive solutions together

One of these clients was the already well-established ABCis, who were recommending Ezylink to independent retailers as part of their business advice to clients.  The mission of ABCis to make independent retailers more profitable through process change, technology adoption, and data analysis was well aligned with OzBiz Solution’s Ezylink product.

In fact, ABCis and OzBiz Solutions had many mutual customers, so when an opportunity arose in 2020 for ABCis to acquire Ezylink and add it to their business offering, it was a no-brainer.

ABCis have continued to improve the Ezylink software and are now providing smart automation to over 750 businesses throughout Australia.

A reputation for innovation

Retaining Ezylink’s simplicity is core to its efficiency, flexibility, and continued effectiveness. Ezylink can be used on over 20 POS systems and connects with all the major accounting packages. This innovative simplicity is key to Ezylink’s future evolution as a cloud or web-based application that retailers can access from anywhere. The future for Ezylink is bright, with continued team expansions to service the growing number of retail business clients around Australia, and, very soon, in global markets.
