Employee Theft in Pawn Shops

A common way for pawn-shop employees to steal from their employers is to process a sale for cash then void the sale in the software. With higher editions of Pawnbroker Pawn Shop Software, each employee can be granted or denied authorization to void sales, requiring someone in the shop with such authority to go to the POS station and process the void - or avoid it at some other time.

Another form of employee dishonesty is entering a discount (on a cash sale) at POS in the software - a discount that didn't actually take place. The customer pays $10, for example. The clerk enters a discount of $2 for a net sale of $8 and pockets $2.

With Pawnbroker Pawn Shop Software each employee can be selectively denied or granted access to any part of the program and the store's data. The sections of the software are divided into Point of Sale, Back Office and Management.

  • Point of Sale: Sales Work Area, Sales Reports, C and E Credit Sale, Void Sale, Credit Memo, Open Cash Drawer, Bounce Check, Give Discount
  • Back Office: Inventory Work Area, Customer Work Area, Batch Entry, Batch Edit, Batch Delete, Inventory Reports, Customer Reports, Promotions, Categories, Backup Export
  • Management: Pawner Work Area, Disbursements, Employee Work Area, Resources, Settlements Work Area, Batch Settlements

A primary feature of the software is the auditing of any employee's till during or at the end of the day.

With these software features it becomes unnecessary, for purposes of using the software, to have different Windows users having to log in and out.

The program also allows for commissions to be tracked. Each employee can have his or her own commission schedule.

The 'no support fees' software...

The Intro edition of Pawnbroker Software does everything necessary to process pawn transactions, including of course printing the pawn ticket (on paper). The ticket is editable so changes appear on the next ticket printed. This program will also track sellers of items, the items themselves, prices paid and selling prices. POS includes printing sales receipts on paper.

The Deluxe edition adds police and LEADS reporting - very easy. Also included are check cashing, payday/title loans and layaways.

With PPSS Diamond employees can be locked out of any part of the program and can be prevented from voiding sales and/or discounting at POS (two common methods of employee theft). The cash drawer can be audited at any time for each employee.

Multiple computers can be networked at the same location sharing the same database simultaneously. Adhesive and non-adhesive thermal price labels can be printed as well as thermal receipts. Pictures of people and merchandise can be taken and stored.

The 24k edition adds electronic fingerprinting and signatures, license scanning for form population and webcam support.
