Vend featured on Australia’s The Block Glasshouse


We’re pretty starstruck right now. Last night Vend was centre stage on top rating Australian TV Show, The Block Glasshouse.

Vend is the point-of-sale powering the Retail Challenge.

Working with our partner Xero, we were able to get everyone up and running in only 2 weeks. This really shows the power of the cloud in action. Without revealing too much, check out the clip below to see our very own Jordan King, who was in the store helping the contestants be able to run Vend themselves.

If you’re in Australia catch the full episode online with a box of popcorn and make sure you tune in this evening (that’s Wednesday 27 August, 7:00pm EST time) for the rest of the Retail Challenge.

If you’re in the Melbourne area the pop-up shop is now open to the public. Why not do abit of shopping for yourself. Check out the gorgeous homewares, artworks and furniture all sourced by The Block teams. Head to 121 High Street, Prahan, Victoria 3181 (map). Don’t worry if you’re not in Melbourne you can still grab a few bargains online.
