OFFERING information and advice to small businesses owners, the NSW Business Bus pulled into Auburn Central this month.

Among those taking advantage of the visit was David Nguyen from Western Sydney start-up Business Engine which has grown to eight staff in just one year and secured more than 400 clients in Australia and overseas on the back of its ‘bePOS’ iPad app.
The app, which helps clients manage everyday business transactions from an iPad, was developed by Business Engine founder Chi Duc Duong, a software engineer with 20 years’ experience who migrated to Australia with his family in 2015.
Mr Duong said support from the Multicultural Business Advisory Service, including Vietnamese Business Connect advisor Anh-Tuan Nguyen, had been crucial in setting up his business.
“The advisor helped us with compliance issues and we also worked closely with him to come up with different strategies to market the product to business clients in various industries,” he said.
“As a result, bePOS has now started to gain momentum and is being welcomed by businesses across Australia and overseas.
“In the next six months, we will focus on developing a larger customer base and marketing our product to as many customers and possible.”
