Pawnbrokers are loving the new Janam scan gun for inventory management.

Pawnbrokers are loving the new Janam scan gun for inventory management at their stores. Some of you may have discovered at the NPA Pawn Expo that we are using the new Janam scan gun. The Janam scan gun has a light, sleek, highly-functional form factor for intensive barcode scanning. Its unique, center-weighted ergonomics, with battery positioned in handle, make it feel remarkably light and balanced in the hand. The Janam will help make inventory management a breeze. Would you like to update your inventory to PawnMaster in real-time? The Janam scanner will cut down that tedious task and make it fun, while also allowing you to correct mis-binned items on the fly.

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.

Holy cow! 8 days until worlds collide...

It seemed like yesterday that we were all at the 2011 NPA Pawn Expo at Caesar's Palace but my how times flies. In 8 days Pawnbrokers will converge and gather at the best show of the year again. If you were at last year's show, you hopefully got to stop by Data Age's PawnMaster booth to see what was new. This year will be no different with extremely helpful features like:

We are getting down to the wire with only 11 days left until the NPA Pawn Expo

Most people who go to the NPA Pawn Expo in 11 days will be taking a much needed break from their day grind and rightfully so. Pawnbrokers converge for a few days or stay the week in Vegas each year to learn about new products each of the vendors are promoting. This is a win-win for everyone in so many ways. First, Vendors get to mingle with existing customers and of course look to make new ones as well. Pawnbrokers get to see what each of the manufacturers have been working on all year that get showcased during this impressive gathering. Third, Pawnshop owners get to meet valuable industry contacts and network with other like minded Pawnbrokers and hear what is working in their neck of the woods.
