Possum IT helps retail & hospitality businesses grow fast by automating their sales, customer, inventory, employee and financial management. Through our flagship product, OrderMate, we organize and automate hospitality and retail business’ sales, service and financial management processes, which results in better staff productivity, lower labor costs and greater customer satisfaction.

Possum IT liberates and empowers businesses that are tired of running their operation with a hodge-podge of incompatible software programs and manual grunt labor. OrderMate is a Windows based software program that organizes and automates order taking, pricing, sales management, employee timesheets, inventory management and integration to your favourite financial management system. Unlike competitor products, OrderMate is a comprehensive, active system built specifically for Hospitality and Retail businesses that recognize that customer service and automation are necessary to grow quickly and profitably.

Possum IT is a privately-held organization. Our headquarters are located in the centre of beautiful Adelaide, South Australia.


Pat Hollis - Managing Director

Possum IT is owned and operated by entrepreneurial small business owners who saw a need in the market for automated business solutions. Since inception in 1997, we have worked tirelessly to provide real-world solutions to other, like-minded small businesses. Our talented team has extensive technology and small business expertise.

Pat, our CEO has spent more than 30 years helping entrepreneurs leverage technology to accomplish their lofty business goals. Although his formal degrees in Business and Computer Information Systems focused more on helping “Corporate Australia”, his real passion and skill is in arming the small business entrepreneur with the tools needed to compete with and out-perform large companies and other competitors.

His unique mix of technical skills and entrepreneurial sense has been instrumental in continually providing businesses with products which consistently add dollars to the bottom line. Having held executive management roles at some of Australia’s largest organisations, including Southcorp, Mayne and Ernst & Young to name but a few, Pat has been “under the covers” of some of the most successful operations in the country.

This exposure continues to feed his unquenchable appetite for learning what makes businesses, both large and small, succeed. Outside of work, Pat is a family man. With 2 great kids, Pat and his beautiful wife Sue have been truly blessed. The whole family are sports nuts, and Pat loves nothing more than cheering his kids on in their sporting endeavours.
