    I am sure it would have been an interesting exchange! As a NZ based SaaS payroll solution Smartpayroll, we have seen very little resistance from SME owners in the real world. I think in addition to being comfortable with things like Trade Me, a significant number of business owners use internet banking on a day to day basis. This makes a very good jump of point into other services like accounting and payroll. We firmly believe that business owners are ready to make that leap and we are seeing it every day across the country. Its just not the city based businesses but right across the provinces and small town NZ. In fact we are getting a better take up from small town NZ. While its not a Tsunami its not a trickle either.
