Investing in People, for People

Why Pawn Shops Need Technology

The success of a pawnshop is reliant on many factors. In today’s world, countless technologies exist that help improve exposure and traffic, encourage professional education, utilize e-sales channels and, above all, empower pawnshop owners to achieve what they set out to do and allow them to be current while maintaining a high level of productivity. Pawnshops that want to stay relevant know that they must incorporate these technologies into their growth strategy.  In doing so, they reap additional benefits that keep them ahead of their competitors who fail to embrace technology, including:

How Valuable is Your (and Your Employees') Time?

For a busy pawnshop, the speed at the counter directly translates to dollars earned. Customers expect to walk in with an item of value and walk out with cash in the absolute minimum amount of time. The faster the shop can write loans, take payments and make sales, the more customers they will be able to serve per day.

Lately, it seems like pawn software companies have been putting hurdles in place to slow you and your employees down when writing a loan only to benefit themselves. They make you enter information for items that isn’t needed. You have to describe every item as if it is expected to default and be posted to an online auction.

Sales Spotlight: Value Equals Help

We speak about value but what is value in our world?   My take on this is simple… Value=Help.

Every Loan is a Relationship

Every time a pawn shop writes a loan, a relationship begins.  Whether it’s for a new or returning customer, each loan is the start of a relationship with someone who will visit the store over and over, and whose experience will impact the success of the business. 

Buzz Word or Buzz Kill?

Buzzwords – are they done and have they had their day in the sun?  I am sure we have all overused buzzwords especially in early usage settings.  They are slick and have an immediate play on emotions. The real issue with Buzzwords is the “buzz kill” that can accompany them if they are used to impress and not to educate. Buzzwords can be very costly to the customer if they don’t do their homework. High quality, reputable and stable vendors are transparent and offer more than just marketing fluff. They would rather deliver substance and depth to assist in helping the customer make the right decision for their business. Dig deep and ask the right questions.

Inventory turnover is a measurement of how many times the retail inventory is sold during a twelve-month period.
