Because the solution is web-based, there are no large upfront costs or hardware purchases and the solution is always up-to-date. Every time retailers log into their store via the Internet, they are working on the latest version, no additional downloads required. The data is backed up continuously, ensuring a secure, constant flow of data, even if the computer crashes on site.

With the system's Dashboard, retailers are given a quick real-time view of store operations, with sales, item costs and notes available at a glance. Data can be imported or entered manually, and inventory can be specified as store, consignment or dealer. Consignors can view their stock through ConsignorAccess, reducing administrative overhead, and it can even support rent management for antique malls and dealers.

Traxia offers free data conversion from the store's previous Point of Sale solution, as well as industry-leading customer support. For consignment retailers, antique malls and other resellers, SimpleConsign is a cost-effective, extremely user-friendly retail solution.

The Looking Glass Review

Ease-of-use

I am still learning some of the ways to make this program easier for everyone. There are quite a few quick tips and shortcuts. Overall, someone with no register experience can easily hop on and complete a transaction.

Functionality

We do a space rent and commission sales. It would be nice to personalize it a bit more with each consignor.

Product Quality

The cash drawer slots for the bills are too narrow.

Customer Support

Our rep was incredibly helpful during our set up and he was very patient with all my questions!

Likes Best

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.

Likes Least

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.

Recommendations

We specifically looked into consignment programs. There are not many options.
This company was the best at replying quickly and getting me the information specific to my stores needs.

Works great for our store, great customer service

Ease-of-use

It's very user-friendly. The sales representative walked each employee through the software thoroughly and answered every question with ease.

It seems flawless. I love that it works in the cloud in the event that the computer crashes, and you can use it in multiple locations.

Customer Support

Instant customer support. There's no waiting or pushing buttons trying to get a live person.

Likes Best

We have over 50 vendors in our store, and this system tracks each one and automatically takes the consignor fee and monthly rent. It also allows every vendor log online to see instant updates to their sales.

Likes Least

In the customer demographics/profiles, I would like to see a better section for customer list for growing database and sending emails for marketing, etc.

Recommendations

No paperwork, no calculating weekly vendor sales. It automatically accounts for discounts allowed, fees, rent, and store split fees.

SimpleConsign has everything you need to run a business. Look at the ease of use and the scope of services offered. Being web-based gives peace of mind knowing that all records will be backed up and accessible. The online support plus the help desk make this software stand out as top of the line!

Easy to use; I love it

Ease-of-use

It's self-explanatory and hard to mess up. The customer service is awesome if you ever need help.

We have a consignment store. It's perfect for us. We can provide online access to our customers, print sales reports and offer the use of store credit.

Product Quality

It's affordable and does exactly what it says it will.

Customer Support

I have only had to call once. My experience was positive. My coworkers have used the customer support more than I have, and they have positive feedback as well.

Likes Best

It's user-friendly and provides the reports and information necessary to run our business. I love the ease of training new people.

Likes Least

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.

Recommendations

Give it a trial run; see if you like it. Call customer service with questions; they rock!

Conshy Consign Review

Ease-of-use

Everything is clearly labeled. Also, the printouts are easy to read and access.

Functionality

We just track items and payouts, so this serves its purpose.

Product Quality

It glitches and freezes sometimes, which makes serving a customer difficult.

Customer Support

Usually, the feedback is quick. My boss is usually able to fix the issues fairly quickly.

Likes Best

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!

Conshy Consignment Tracking it all!

Ease-of-use

It's so simple to use when entering inventory, removing inventory, and checking out customers. I also like that I can easily pull up each consignor and see the past history of their sales.

Functionality

Product Quality

I love that I can use it anywhere! It's so convenient to work from home.

Customer Support

Likes Best

It's easy to use. I like being able to go from checkout to dashboard so easily. I also like being able to sort our inventory in so many ways.

Likes Least

I don't like the fact that I can only change an item's status in the "Consignment" tab. I wish it worked better with our virus protection. Sometimes, it scrambles our barcodes.

Recommendations

It's easy to use, easy to look at, and easy to find items.

I'm in love with SimpleConsign!

Ease-of-use

My eleven-year-old daughter is helping us key in inventory. It took her about fifteen minutes to figure out all of it. And even her non-tech savvy mom (me) had it down pat in about an hour.

Functionality

We haven't needed anything - from functionality to reports to output - that we couldn't get from this software.

Product Quality

Top notch. Our customers who have online access love it. We love it, and I love how our tickets print out, how our reports look, etc.

Customer Support

They communicate regularly and thoroughly. They return calls almost immediately; they are responsive via email and phone. No complaints.

Likes Best

It's so easy to use. It's intuitive, and I can access it from anywhere that I have internet access.

Likes Least

So far, I wouldn't change a thing. The staff members are easy to talk to, the shipping of the auxiliary products was quick. We've had no down time that affected operations.

Recommendations

Consider the accessibility. The thing we love about SimpleConsign is that we can log on from home and enter inventory. I can check it from my office, my cell phone, anywhere. And the consignor access is a huge bonus.

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.

We LOVE SimpleConsign by Traxia! I don't know how we functioned without this program before! It is so easy to use, so intuitive, and easy to teach to others. The sales and support staff are exceptional. They are easy to reach, thoroughly helpful and always pleasant. We purchased this program on our one year anniversary as a way to upgrade our business entity. What a difference it has made. We have already seen a huge increase in sales due to the speed and efficiency with which we can handle check out, consigning, layaway, and more. I researched three other companies before choosing and I am so so so happy with our decision to use SimpleConsign by Traxia. It is everything we need and none of the things we didn't need! What a great program!
