PawnMaster is known for its robust reporting capabilities, and that’s why we partnered with Vernon Stading of Devoted Pawn Consulting to create three custom reports to better serve PawnMaster users. Vernon has been servicing the pawn industry as a consultant for years, and during his visits he saw where pawn shop owners could make, and in some cases, save more money if they had the tools to do so. Vernon approached PawnMaster with the idea of making three custom reports that would be available to all PawnMaster users; The Key Performance Indicator Report, The Employee Productivity Report, and The Employee Commission Report.

This topic generates the most calls to support and seems to be the least understood. Cash drawers are one area where shops seem to differ very greatly. Some owners only want to track the activity at the counter, but not the vault. Other owners want to track all the money in the shop. Some shops use individual cash drawers and some shops have a central cashier. There are even a few shops that don’t use any cash drawer at all.
