How to Profit from The Edge | The Edge for Jewelers

Sharpen Your Edge

119012756The Edge® improves your profitability in numerous ways:

Ease of use means that the functions you perform with The Edge® will get done quicker and easier, freeing up time for sales or bench work.

Customer Relationship Management helps identify who is buying, what they buy, who is not buying, and even answer more complex questions like “Who spent at least $1,000 with us last year but less than $200 this year and has a birthday coming up next week?” The results can be used to print mailings, generate follow-up calls, reward your best customers, and spend your advertising dollars more effectively.

Inventory Control keeps you in touch with exactly how much inventory you have. We track goods you own, memo goods, consignment goods, customer’s goods, and goods you may have out on loan to a good customer or another friendly merchant. We know if the goods are in your shop, or at an outside contractor. Don’t get caught exposed; your insurance company cares about these details. And The Edge’s physical inventory process helps you complete this task in a minimal time using barcode or RFID technology.

Sales Analysis Reports show you exactly which categories (departments) and price points within the categories are selling, as well as which slices of your inventory provide a decent profit and which do not. The Edge will even make recommendations as to what type of goods you should buy for the upcoming season. It will steer you away from inventory that historically does not sell, and steer you toward inventory that returns more profit.

The David Geller Repair Method is supported by The Edge (you must subscribe to his book) and will enable even your part-time sales staff to estimate repair pricing more accurately. Job tracking and customer notification are features that improve your service and save time. The Edge can text customers automatically when repairs are marked as completed.

Guaranteed!

We are so confident The Edge will increase your profits, we guarantee it in writing. If, after using The Edge conscientiously for one year, you are not completely satisfied, you can return the software for a full refund of the license fee. Click here for full details.

Hear What Our Customers Have to Say

The Edge® is the best money we've ever spent. It's one of the main reasons our business has prospered. When we first installed The Edge software, we underwent a two-day training session. Since then, I've taken part in seminars to better understand how to use the software from a management standpoint. I've probably been to four weeks of classes with The Edge, and it’s been very beneficial.

The EDGE has taken our business to a new level of efficiency. Inventory management is now a breeze with information so easily attainable. Customers notice and comment on the professionalism of their repair and jewelry receipts, the EDGE is a must for the Independent Jeweler!

We use The Edge® for many different operations. We use it to track custom work within our repair department. We use it to track what kind of volume and sales we’re doing in our repair department. We use it for our appraisal services. On the financial side, The Edge integrates so well with QuickBooks it’s as if the system has a built-in accounting module.

The Edge®, by Abbott Jewelry Systems, was the key to ‘jump starting’ our new store, and helped us increase sales over 250 percent without going crazy. We're finally organized!

We have been using The EDGE software for 6 years and would never think of changing. There is so much the software is capable of. We utilize the purchase order feature daily and the AIMS autopilot has increased our fast sellers and stock turn. We shop smarter at the jewelry shows and have really learned how to make our inventory work for us. We use the Customer Relationship Management tools to create detailed reports for our staff to do more effective clienteling, which takes the “selling” out of the sales process. There are features that help you track how effective your marketing efforts are right at the Point of Sale screen. It’s easy for all the staff to record how or what brought a customer into the store. There really are so many great features to The EDGE software that I can’t possibly list them all, but without hesitation I would recommend The Edge to any retailer, except my competition of course!

We have always had the Geller book, but since we uploaded it into The Edge system, and began using The Edge for repair intake, the process has become so much easier. Before, it was like a guessing game. Now, we use the SKU to input repairs, and the amount is already calculated. I and my employees have been very pleased. Best of all, my profit for repairs has increased drastically.

The Inventory reports give category and vendor-specific information that allow me, at a glance, to make educated decisions on inventory levels, while providing real solutions for eliminating old inventory. The management reports are the most useful we've ever had. Thanks, Dick for the best jeweler software on the market.

No more guesswork. The Edge® inventory reports outline category and vendor-specific information that allow me to make educated decisions about product levels. Better yet, they provide real solutions for eliminating aging inventory. The most useful management reports I’ve ever seen. The best jeweler software on the market.

The great support we receive will make The Edge® the last system we will ever need.

Our experience with The Edge Software has been fantastic. They have adapted to our every need. We're amazed at the variety of additional services they offer and the time it saves us. Unlike traditional retail systems, The Edge is perfectly designed for the retail jeweler. Looking back, adding The Edge Software was one of the most positive business decisions we made.

We at Glitz & Glamour thought we had a great point-of-sale system until we needed to upgrade our old, out-of-date computer equipment. For most stores this wouldn’t be a big deal. For us it was! The point-of-sale system we were using was also obsolete and could not be upgraded. So, we took the plunge and bought new computers and a new software package, The Edge. We are so pleased with the functionality! We can scan bar codes to input merchandise, something we couldn’t do before, saving us so much time. Inventory used to take us months to complete. This year? Just a few days. Everyday transactions are quick and easy. We can complete multiple transactions for a customer on one receipt. Before, we had to separate out each transaction. Now, customers spend most of their time making their selection instead of checking out. And did I mention The Edge reporting feature? We have been able to pull reports for any request or reason. No more manual reporting needed!  We thought we had a great point-of-sale system. We were so wrong. Now we know we have one!
