lets you enter all
the contact information for your consignors, and all the inventory
items for each consignor. It can then report on these items by
selecting criteria (such as to show all items sold from a start date to
an end date), and sorted in any sequence. Examples of information
you can get through this reporting system are lists of unsold
inventory, sale amounts by day, sale amounts by item category,
sale amounts by consignor, aging of unsold inventory, amount owed to
each consignor, total amount owed to all consignors, items covered by a
particular check. etc. This information is presented in either
detail or summary format. In addition, a copy of a listing may be
sent to a file capable of being read and printed through the Microsoft
Excel program, for use in backoffice work.
allows you to define
a commission rate applicable for all items. When entering
information for a new item and either the cost price or the sale price
is first entered, the system will calculate the other price, rounded to
a selected dollar amount. For instance, if you designate that
price be rounded to the closest dollar, and if your commission is 35%,
and you enter a cost price of $80, it will calculate the sale price of
$123. Conversely if you entered the sale price of, say $150, it
will calculate the cost price (amount due to the consignor)
of $98. You will of course have the ability to over-ride
these prices manually. This feature takes effect only if the
other price is blank, otherwise it would keep you from manually
over-riding either price.
Consignors who rent space can have a monthly amount automatically
posted on a specified due date against their balances. These are
used to net out amounts owed consignors for sales.
provides a function
whereby all the items of a particular consignor that are sold and not
yet paid for can be displayed, showing the total amount due, thus
allowing you to manually write a check for that amount. The system will
then mark the items as paid with a reference check number. In
this process you have the option to de-select any item you do not want
to pay for yet.

delete in one step all items sold and paid for prior to a specified
