I have been using the MasterPlan Software since version 5, and have recently upgraded to version 8, I am finding it very useful and time saving. The MAUS staff were also very organised and motivated when it came to setting me up with the program in a download so I could start working on MasterPlan immediately.

The automotive industry can be complex and covers businesses as diverse as spare parts through to detailing. One thing remains the same, however. Australia is a country which relies heavily on motor vehicles for transport and as such, businesses in this industry will always be in demand.

Business Services

One of the main targets of many businesses is other businesses. The business market can be very lucrative and this is particularly true of the business service industry. If you aim to tap into this particular industry, then you will need the correct and timely information as it can be a difficult market to break into.

Child Related Services

There's no doubt about it - children are expensive and their needs constantly change, depending on their ages. This is good news for businesses which focus on child related services. Parents want the best for their children and they are prepared to pay for it. As a business in this industry, you can take advantage of this constant need and offer a service which can quickly become indispensable.


Love them or hate them, no one can survive in today's world without a computer. Computers are the backbone of most businesses and have become almost as prevalent in the home. This is a very dynamic industry and although the computer industry is undoubtedly here to stay, it is constantly evolving and businesses have to evolve with it in order to survive.

Financial Services

Money - every body wants it but few know how to get it and once they do, how to manage it effectively. That is why the financial services industry is in demand both in the “good” times and the “bad.” And this is not just for financial advisers but also a range of other businesses from valuers to debt collectors.

Food & Hospitality

In today's busy world, people often look for ways to relax and enjoy themselves which doesn't involve them having to do anything themselves. The food and hospitality industry fills this need perfectly from a quick “fix” at a lunch bar to enjoying a drink at the local pub.


The products in this section will provide you with the tools and resources necessary to succeed in your particular business and industry.

Personal Services

The personal services industry needs a high commitment to customer service as businesses in this industry in particular will succeed or fail based on how they deal and interact with their clients. In this business, it must be service with a capital S!

Residential Services

The residential services industry largely focuses on the home but can be very diverse. Businesses range from a home renovation service through to pet sitting and there is no end to the opportunities available in this particular industry. It just takes ingenuity and persistence.

Retail Business

The retail industry is perhaps one of the biggest industries in Australia and has the widest variety of businesses from small corner delis to large retail chains. But regardless of the size and the particular business, they all have one thing in common - trying to predict what their markets want in order to make the best possible profit.

Service Industry

As the name suggests, to be a success in the service industry, you must supply second-to-none customer service. Without it, your customers will quickly find a competitor who is willing to offer better service and often at a more expensive price. This is an industry where price can become secondary to the service. In many cases, customers are willing to pay more in order to get the “best.”
