Use BCSS to print 'settlement checks' to the owners of the consignments sold.
Print any of the 300+ reports for shop use or customer information, including sales, disbursements, taxes, inventory and amounts owed to consignors.
There an no monthly or annual precharges for 'support' or 'software rental'. Payment is once for the software. No forever payments.
The program is 'tiered' in features and price so dealers aren't forced to pay for functions that aren't needed.
BCSS Intro ($295) is a basic program sales, rentals and consignments. It doesn't track unsold vehicles.
The Deluxe edition ($295) tracks inventory and prints price labels and tags (for smaller items like accessories, supplies and parts) on sheet labels. Cash drawers,receipt printers and barcode scanners can be used. Data exports to spreadsheet and QuickBooks formats.
With Diamond ($595) two or more computers can be connected (networked) to allow computers to access the same data. Software copies are needed for additional stations and are offered at substantial discounts from the original price.) Employees can be locked out of any part of the program and prevented from conducting transactions like voids and discounts (which are common methods of employee theft). Thermal-label-printing from rolls of labels is included.
Software copies are available for $199 and discounting applies to larger orders.
Receipt printers and cash drawers are supported by all editions except Intro. Diamond and Virtual can print price labels from rolls using a special thermal label printer. Again, this may not be necessary for large items like vehicles.
At purchase the program will divide sales proceeds when a sale has been completed, crediting the consignor's and shop's accounts with amounts determined by a preset percentage. For example, if a car sells for $10,000 and the seller is to receive a 10% commission, he will be credited with $1,000 (in the shop's account) and the consignor's account will be credited for $9,000.
When a sale is saved in the program, a settlement record is created in the background, which can be opened and processed when the consignee is ready to pay the owner of the property. Adjustments can be made at that time by adding or deducting amounts for fees, adjustments, etc.
BCSS Diamond and Virtual provide an 'employee management tool' which allows the business owner to grant access only to those sections of the software that each employee may need, keeping sensitive data from being viewed by those who don't have a need to know. The program also tracks commissions, allowing a different commission schedule to be created for each employee or broker.
Car consignment is a smart way of increasing inventory of used vehicles whether they are collector classics, luxury or muscle cars and trucks. Ownership of the vehicles remains with the consignors vehicle owners) and the consignee (the car dealership) takes on the responsibility for the consignments. Typically there's a consignment agreement which spells out the terms of the relationship and it often includes a disclaimer of liability for theft and damage. The software can also be used to buy and sell ancillary items like motors, body parts, accessories, tires and rims.
