With Pawnbroker Pawn Shop Software permanent changes can be made in the software's configuration to avoid having to repeatedly enter the same information (to be printed on report, pawn tickets, etc.).

Most importantly though is cost. Payment for the software is once. There are no monthly or annual prepayments for support so if help is not needed, money will not have been wasted on something that wasn't used: support.

On the other hand, if help is needed, payment is made at the time support is provided - for any reason, including help with hardware, computers, Windows and networking. Rates for assistance are about half that of local IT services at ($20/15 minutes, minimum of $20 per incident).

Of course there is an ongoing cost of maintaining the software which happens in the background with tech support and is completely hidden and separate from those who use the software. Because software users benefit from the improvements in the software, each shop pays a nominal $175 per year, starting in the second year, for 'software maintenance'.

A valuable feature in the Diamond and 24karat editions of the software is the ability to lock employees out of any part of the program as well as preventing them from performing two operations that lend themselves to employee theft: voiding sales and allowing discounts at POS.

The 'no support fees' software...

The Intro edition of PPSS is the lowest in price at $495. (All payments for software are one time.) Intro is a basic pawn-processing software and prints everything (price labels, hang tags, reports, receipts and pawn tickets) on regular paper using a common ink printer.

The Deluxe edition ($695) supports cash drawers and receipt printers (depending upon make and model). Loan interest can be 'prorated' in that interest can be charged for a portion of the loan period. Deluxe adds software for check cashing, payday and title loans and layaways.

The Diamond edition ($895) can print price labels and hang tags from rolls of labels using a thermal label printer. Pictures can be taken of pawners and their items. Multiple computers can be connected at the same location to share the same database.

Diamond and the 24k edition ($995) allow the shop owner to manage shop employees:

  • Deny access to sensitive info
  • ID each transaction by employee
  • Audit an employee at any time
  • Prevent sales voiding & POS discounting

A free live demo is available prior to purchase so before you buy, it can be assured that the program does all that is needed and works properly on your computer.
