Data Age Software Obtains NTEP Certification
Largo, FL- April 20, 2012 - Data Age Business Systems (Data Age), a leading provider of Financial Transaction Software Solutions, which includes its pawn shop management system known as PawnMaster® and its software designed for gold buyers sold under the Buy/Sell Plus™ brand, announced it obtaining NTEP “National Type Evaluation Program” certification from the NCWM “National Conference on Weights and Measures”.
Both the Pawn and Gold buying industries have been undergoing rapid growth given gold prices. The need to mitigate transgressions by integrating software with scales used to weigh gold and other precious metals in these environments has become extremely appealing. With more pawnbrokers entering the market and with Gold Buyers materializing in brick and mortar storefronts, online, malls, kiosks, hotels, and home gold buying parties the need for standards has increased. Not only is it important for customers, but business owners also need to make sure that transactions are beyond reproach and protective measures are in place to ensure calibration of scales and automating the capturing of weights and other measures.
