City Council Is Requiring Pawn Shops to Keep Computer Records...

In one town in Kentucky, city council wants all pawn shops to keep computer records of how they got the items in their stores in an effort to reduce crime.

Police ask, PawnMaster delivers!

When the Police say they want help collecting more information most Pawnbrokers feel this is going to be more of a chore and take more time. Some would agree, but those elite Pawnbrokers who use PawnMaster pawn shop software would likely disagree. PawnMaster collects all of the data required for law enforcement agencies and then some. PawnMaster integrates with biometric fingerprint scanners that help clerks practically automate the process for them. With a few clicks of the button they can record fingerprints and update customers profile pictures in seconds. Those police files are then sent over in the format of preference to law enforcement including item description, pictures, etc. PawnMaster helps protect shop owners every way possible.

Pawnbrokers, Are You Ready...?

Pawnbrokers, are you ready to single handedly take over the Vegas strip next week? We are and just putting the final touches on everything. Soon our bags will be packed, shirts, pants, and shoes all spiffed up so we can engage each and every one of you who will be there in a professional and enthusiastic manner. To say we are excited about going is an understatement. We look forward to seeing our current customers and interacting with future ones during this dynamic show. Data Age and PawnMaster have been leaking hints to you over the last few weeks on what to expect from us at the show. So here is one of the best enhancements to our widely popular Text messaging feature we introduced last year to you. Now you can send out Blast messages in addition to sending out payments due, items wanted, forfeits nearing as well as layaways. You asked and we answered the call to be able to send out a mass Text message instantaneously to every subscriber about sales and events instead of sending them out individually like before. The statistics and ROI on those pawn shops who have implemented Text messaging are staggering. Make sure you set your phone and calendar reminders to ask about this feature in further detail at the show.
