Over the years, Data Age has been one of the top rated companies to work for in central Florida. We work hard and we play hard… And yes, we get a little whacky. Our world-class, industry-leading products certainly are very attractive to the top professionals seeking long-term employment, but it’s the culture at the company that attracts top talent through our doors and keeps them here. We just completed the NPA event and it is obvious the pawn industry is growing and transitioning. The veterans are mixing with the younger brokers so to speak. The younger folks here talk about how understanding the demographics of our customers is so important… This is a true statement. Not only does a company have to evolve and improve upon their products, services, methodologies and strategies, they also have to understand the people driving the business and the audience it is serving.
It is always a great pleasure for me to spend time with our clients. I have such respect for the operators in this industry and it brings me great pleasure in seeing them succeed. Today I had the pleasure of spending hours with one of our long time clients Gina & Josh Barkan. Gina and Josh have been using PawnMaster for 15 years. These guys are hard workers and they pride themselves on good business. Services and relationships is the name of their game and you can see this by the amount of traffic that comes through there doors. There shop is well received by the community. I enjoyed speaking with their team and getting valuable feedback from the trenches, which we always use to make ourselves better. I want to personally commend Gina & Josh with a Bravo! I also want to thank the entire PawnMaster family for their continued support. Twenty seven years of experience with almost three thousand clients that continually help us stay innovative. While so many other vendors struggle to attain long term growth, we pride ourselves on loyalty and history.
One of the features that makes PawnMaster so easy and fast to use is the built in keyboard shortcuts. You don't need to use a mouse to do most functions in PawnMaster. In fact, with a little practice, using keyboard shortcuts can be much faster than using a mouse. One of the most popular videos in our "Did You Know" series is the one on shortcuts. We've had several customers ask us to provided a more expanded list of those shortcuts. Richard Lutz, the Data Age University Product Training Manager, has put together this comprehensive list of the keyboard shortcuts available in PawnMaster.
