ConsignmentTill is a point of sale and inventory management system designed specifically for shops selling on consignment. Capable of handling commissioned as well as ‘buy-outright’ items, ConsignmentTill features automated inventory control, consignor payouts, credit card processing and custom label/tag creation. It allows you to track customer purchases and includes a search function to quickly find consignors. ConsignmentTill will easily adapt to your growing company by running on several computers and accessing the same data (via network).
We implemented Consignment Till five years ago and it is the best decision we ever made. ALL other consignment stores in our town have failed because they didn’t have a good inventory tracking system. We advocate complete transparency in dealing with our consignors. They love having the ability to track all of their items plus knowing how much money they will be receiving. They can access their account from any computer, anywhere.
The reports we have access to are invaluable. We are able to not only send our consignors a check but the settlement report itemizes what items we are paying them for. Paying our quarterly sales taxes is a breeze with the Sales Tax Report. We can compile a report on virtually any field containing data.
One of the best features I have found was deleting items from the system using the sku tags and the “append” feature. I had over 200 price tags to delete and I found out that you can check the append box, scan the sku tags, then highlight all items and select “Delete”. What used to take hours now only takes minutes. The moral of this story is "If you think there should be an easier way, don’t be afraid to contact Ron and ask.
We originally had the feature but it has been removed. When adding a new consignor and automatically generating the consignor number, you had the ability to see the number on the screen. Now you have to search through the list of consignors to find it.
