April 15, 2010: Canadian-based photo retailing software specialist Dakis will inject some much-needed competition into the somewhat stitched up local market when it arrives in Australia in June.
‘We’re pretty excited to be heading to Australia,’ Dakis customer relationship manager, Patricia Hugron told Photo Counter. ‘This was not in our original business plan, but our name somehow got around to a few key players and since then we’ve been getting a steady stream of inquiries.’
