Every year, the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama get together to share ideas among pawnbrokers and get up to date info concerning the industry and what we all need to concentrate on for the coming months. This year, South Georgia and the Florida panhandle have been invited as well, which will make for a great mix of pawnbrokers from the greater southeast area of the country. With the show returning again this year to Orange Beach, Alabama we hope pawnbrokers from the surrounding areas will take advantage and drive over.

One of the most frequent questions I get when doing training on inventory management is, “What’s the difference between a “Bulk item” and “New item?”
A: This is a percentage representing the return on total investment for each customer. When we make a loan or a buy with a customer, we are investing in their likelihood of redeeming the loan or at a minimum, the value of the collateral. When the loan is redeemed, the shop will see a 100% return on investment plus the interest.
One of the most frequent questions I get after a shop has been using PawnMaster for a while is, “How do I undo a payment?”
Steve Richards had been using Premium Software to run his gun and pawn shop since 1990, but he found that it couldn’t keep up with his expanding business. Steve needed a software product that was able to change with the nature of the pawn business, so he turned to PawnMaster. The stability and reporting power of PawnMaster was exactly what Steve was looking for in a software product.
PawnMaster has a tool that helps pawnbrokers get the most from their customer data called the Customer Snapshot, that little box on the right of the New Pawn screen that is displayed after selecting a customer. It lists the number of active loans, number of redeemed and defaulted loans, as well as the number of buys, redemption ratio, return ratio and total sales in dollars. This is important information. This is a quick-glance record of how your customers are treating you.
