My team at Taylor Bug’s loves the system because it is easy to use. They think it is super easy to add store inventory and the option to search for consignors and customers. I am thankful for the value that we also receive for all the services that are provided!

From the moment we contacted Traxia I have been SUPER IMPRESSED and pleased!
I know the importance of partnering with companies that uphold high standards of quality and customer service. Being a customer for 2 years I have been amazed at the customer service that I have received in all areas and at all times! I am so thankful for the years I had doing it ‘old school’ style as it has helped me appreciated the complexity and possibilities that are offered with systems such as Traxia. They make a small business owners life possible, efficient and accurate!

After doing inventory with hand written tags for a year I switched to a download template software. It was AWFUL! I then came across Traxia SimpleConsign on-line. After reading the reviews, assessing the costs, and using the trial version I knew that it was a perfect fit for my store!
With over 1,000 consignors and 11,000 inventory items my store is able to provide records that were not even possible with our pencils and paper method. We are now able to offer store credit, cash and even a combination of the two! It is amazing to be able to search items that may have lost a tag, look up records of previous sold items for pricing points, pull reports and track new and consigned inventory, enter inventory items from home if needed, view store information/reporting on my phone just to name a few.
I also love the Help Desk option they use to 'view' our screen and help instruct and/or set up. And the best part is the company continues to excel, grow and create updates for its current and future clients.

Recommendations

Partnering with Traxia has been one of the BEST decisions that I have made for my business.

I am confident that my next adventure (adding the opportunity to sell items online) will be possible in the future for my store! Fingers crossed!!!

It is such a blessing to know that Traxia Simple Consign will take care of me and all my small business needs! I love that they have helped me grow my business and are ready with the systems in place for our future growth! Thank you Traxia Team for all you and your company do. Your service is recognized and appreciated by our team at Taylor Bug's in Hueytown, Alabama!

Both the product and the vendor are completly about customer service. The software is easy and yet complete. IDEAL for stores with consignors. Our customers love being able to access their account information 24/7. This feature alone saves the staff hours of phone calls. The personal service by the Simple Consign staff is fabulous. Timely, friendly and competent. The reports that are available are just awesome and make book keeping a joy.

I truly have NO concerns or complaints about the vendor. Service has been second to none. They are open to comments and act on any questions or guidance we have requested. The software is excellent. My only suggestion to date is to allow customers to access how many rewards points they have online. This would save us from having to pull that up everytime we get asked that question.

Recommendations

SEEK input from other store owners first. Compare price, flexibility of "contract",ease of use, access to information from various locations, level of customer service and over all satisfaction. There is no doubt in my mind, Simple Consign is the best software out there for consignment stores. I did my homework for months before settling for Simple Consign and I am convinced it is the best choice I could have made.

I was new to the consignment business and had no idea what I was doing, but from the very beginning of getting up and running to to daily execution, the system has exceeded my expectations! It is so simple to learn and understand. Inputting new consigned goods as well as store-owned items has been a piece of cake.

Likes Least

I would have liked more options on the printers and tagging that it works with. I have two Cognitive Printers from my previous business, and I have been using one of them for my ticketing as a makeshift solution. It's not perfect, but I didn't want to spend another $300 for a printer when I already have two that work.

Recommendations

Actually, there's little not to recommend; the customer service team is always there to answer or solve issues that arise, which have been few and far between. It's great for beginners.

We have a unique shop that features handmade items on consignment. This program makes inventory and security very easy for the business and individual artisans. The ability for artisans to see their sales each day is an added bonus.
I'm also thankful for integrated credit card services.

Sometimes there are software glitches with the receipt printer. Also, it would be helpful for cashiers to be able to run the EOD report at close and not just a manager.

This company was the best at replying quickly and getting me the information specific to my stores needs.

The printer settings are my least favorite thing. It's difficult to get it set up with the different tags we use, and we end up wasting lots of labels.

I like how easy it is to look up a consignor and access all their past information. Also, the payouts are easy, and the entering process is very straightforward.

Likes Least

I don't like that the old history of a consignor blends with the new history of a consignor. I feel that the window for specific items is overcomplicated.

Recommendations

Just double check everything you enter! In addition, make IDs clear and different!

SimpleConsign is, by far, one of the most user friendly programs I have had the pleasure of using on a computer. I am not a technically savvy individual by nature, so ease of use is a very important feature for me. I own a very busy consignment store and have needed to find a solution to help me along my evolutionary growth path. I bought a full BCSS package and tried twice to implement it; both times without success.

We then found SimpleConsign. Within weeks we were up and running; there is no looking back! The entire team at SimpleConsign is outstanding. From set-up to operation, they are there to help; easily reached and ultra supportive. I can't say enough positive things about this product. If you need a system to help you get your business started or more organized, this is the one you should buy. It's so user friendly and intuitive and the support is excellent. Very highly recommended.

I absolutely love Traxia. The program is so easy to set up and run that initially I felt I missed something, it was so simple. The few questions and requests I did have were immediately handled by the outstanding customer service, quickly and professionally. This program has saved me hours of work that I use to spend with spreadsheets and pay outs, now it is all done for me! My consigners of all ages have found the cloud feature very easy to navigate, and we both love that they can check inventory status from home, again saving me hours of emailing and follow up. I couldn't be happier with my choice in signing up for Traxia!

We did a software conversion to SimpleConsign from BCSS and it was one of the best decisions we could have made. We needed a mobile, web-based software in order to expand and offer our consignors online access. We hear nothing but positive things from our consignors about the access and it has saved us countless hours of running reports! The conversion was relatively smooth and the customer service at SimpleConsign has been nothing but fabulous!

My Girlfriend's Closet is a women's consingment boutique founded in April 2005. We now have two locations located in the Raleigh, NC area. We are all about excellent customer service as we serve our wonderful, fashion-savvy customers.

We found we were continually running into software issues with our current software program which was causing us to be frustrated. Plus, it was crazy how much money and time it was costing us to continue with our current software program. The support was either non-existant or extremely pricey so it left us on our own most of the time.

My husband suggested that I look into a cloud-based software, so that began my search landing me at Software Advice. I looked into 3 different programs and was blown away by the simplicity of Simple Consign. I knew it was the best fit for our needs at My Girlfriend's Closet. After speaking with the company and doing a demo, we came on board in June 2012 with our new store and then added our exsisting store in July 2012. I can't believe how much this has changed our lives and our business bottom line. The transition from our current program to Simple Consign was seamless. The company's support is second to none. Honestly, we haven't even had to contact them much but when we have, we spoke with someone immediately. This company is truly a blessing for the consingment industry!

We're a nonprofit thrift store that also has a "better boutique", which carries better designer labels. We do not accept consignment, but wanted a POS that can track the donors merchandise as well as being better informed of our inventory and sales.

Simple consign was a way for us to has a POS system with little cash outlay other than the cost of the equipment. They make it very easy as they offer a compete hardware package at a reasonable cost. Their customer service is first rate.
