Simple for Consignment

Pros

One of my favorite features is that consignor's can access their accounts to view account balance, what items have sold, and what items are still active. The software is also fairly easy to understand and use once you have gotten accustomed to it. I thoroughly enjoy the option to edit inventory in bulk, as it makes it much easier when removing clothes from the system at the end of the season.

Cons

While it is easy to use, it's almost necessary to watch the training videos provided to understand exactly how the software works. One irksome issue I've stumbled upon, is that when entering the brand name, a drop down menu appears and on occasion the system has automatically chosen a pre-entered brand that is not the one I am trying to use at that time. When creating/printing reports you must be VERY specific about the information you are looking for, or it will not be correct. This is also frustrating at times.

Simple

Before Simple Consign we used access and created our own system. This is a more complete system and gives you comprehensive information about your business.

Pros

Ease of use of the software, that it is internet based, accessible no matter where I am, and customer support.

Cons

I think the reports could be more robust. I would like to be able to run reports that compare complete financials from year to year, not just the monthly brief comparison. Same for items sold by category.

Flamingo Review

Our customer check out is faster with Simple Consign. Our vendors are incredibly happy they can enter their merchandise and keep up with it at home or on their phone.

Pros

It was easy to set up and use. It keeps track of most of our information.

Cons

You can not split credit card transactions and our printers frequently have problems communicating through the cloud.

Great Consignment Software

Overall I’m very satisfied with this product.

Pros

We use it at a vintage and antique shop which has 50+ vendors and it works perfectly for that. Our vendors love the real-time updates and its very user friendly.

Cons

There are some features I wish it had such as the ability to un-void a transaction (we’ve had employees accidentally void transactions). We’ve also had many of our vendors confused by the dashboard for viewing their sales, think that could be made more clear.

To our mystery reviewer...thanks for taking the time! We're happy you're "very satisfied," but we'd like you to be thrilled. Have your employees attended our trainings? Each week, we have a couple of live training sessions where they can ask questions and get more information. Contact Support and find out when those are. And of course, all training is free of charge! Thanks again.

SimpleConsign is the perfect name for this software!!

My manager and general manager use it more than I do. We all three agree that it is an awesome program but I don't know if they have concerns or would like to see any changes made. I just wanted to be able to get this feedback to you asap.

Pros

Easy to use and understand. The vendors love it as well so they can see what they have sold especially if they had a big item sell from their space then they are aware that more items can be brought in to sell. Gives you detailed reports. So much better than keeping track of everything on paper!! The bar scanner is a life saver for us as well as vendors!! You will be very happy and pleased at it's performance!! It is definitely worth the money!!

Cons

I have not found any cons at this time.

TVS

We have had to lean on your support staff particularly Wes a lot and he has been a great support and probably sick of seeing our tickets pop up!! We have some technical/ upgrading of systems that we should have done before taking on new program that has lead us to some issues but the support has been amazing.

Pros

Once you are familiar with program the ease of tracking daily inventory, sales and options within program are great.
Not crazy about tags/ labels but I think it is just an adjustment issue.

Cons

We had some conversion issues where balance transfers didn’t show what sold so there was an issue with picking up new checks and or not all personal informations for all consigners converted so I had to go back manually and enter names.

Great software system for consignments

The company support their product well and questions were attended to quickly.

Pros

Simple Consign is a reasonable intuitive software make me more confident in working with our consignment jewelry business. After a month or so of use, I now believe that our consignment business has few questions and errors. That is worth the money for me!

Cons

Some start up confusion occurred which made me question the choice, time and money spent.

Consignment Boutique

It is much less time consuming than systems we have used in the past. Also much easier to understand.

Pros

Our boutique is consignment and retail. We have used several different companies over the last 30 years. Simple Consign is by far the easiest for us to use and my staff was able to learn all components of the system with ease.

Cons

We have had a few problems between Quick Books and Simple Consign BUT the support staff is always there to help us.

Switched to Simple Consign

So far so good. My accountant recommended it because she had worked with it from another company.

Pros

I just switched to Simple Consign after using another server for 4 years. So far it has been easy to use and has a lot of features that I find helpful.

Cons

I think the ringing procedure has too many buttons to press if we aren’t using your credit card processor.

Best solution we found - 3 years running

I can't imagine our business model operating efficiently without SimpleConsign.

Pros

SimpleConsign offers flexibility that we couldn't find in other packages we tested. I'm sure everyone who does consignment does things a little differently, and everything we dreamed up before we opened our doors SimpleConsign was able to do right out of the box. Being able to provide a web interface to our consignors has improved our service to them; allowing them to find stock levels, etc. without having to wait for a return call from us.

Cons

I wish there were more ecommerce functionality "out of the box" instead of having to develop our own.
