PawnMaster pawn software makes remote store payments possible in such a way that it has built in checks and balances to protect store owners from fraudulent transactions. In an effort to stop employee theft from ghost transactions, PawnMaster allows for remote payments to be made with a two person authentication process. Each store will generate a code that the other must give in order for the process to work. This means that both stores will show a paper trail when created, therefore, no one person is able to complete the transaction without the other store knowing about it. It will also show up in the reports so each store’s accounting will be accurate. Learn more about all the features Data Age’s PawnMaster software can do with your local rep today 888-949-7296.
Pawn shop pawn management software PawnMaster works with the 3rd party vendor Leadsonline to upload police files to their crime database. Below is a great article about why pawn shops use this service.
The pawn software giant PawnMaster, integrates with the Specially Designated Nationals List (SDN). As part of its enforcement efforts, OFAC publishes a list of individuals and companies owned or controlled by, or acting for or on behalf of, targeted countries. It also lists individuals, groups, and entities, such as terrorists and narcotics traffickers designated under programs that are not country-specific. Collectively, such individuals and companies are called “Specially Designated Nationals” or “SDNs.” Their assets are blocked and U.S. persons are generally prohibited from dealing with them.PawnMaster offers a module that uses that list with existing customers in your database to ensure you are not doing business with such “SDNs”.
When Pawnbrokers take something in pawn or buy something, they just don’t take an ID. They take their customer’s driver’s license number, their height, their weight, their eye color, their build. They turn that into the local police department, and then also turn it into Homeland Security. It’s part of the Patriot Act, and that goes to a central database online across the United States that checks for stolen items.”
