Hear What Our Customers Have to Say

We at Glitz & Glamour thought we had a great point-of-sale system until we needed to upgrade our old, out-of-date computer equipment.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!

We gather as much information from our clients as they will allow. We ask for birthdays, anniversaries, e-mail addresses and things of that import. Then we use The Edge® postcard program to send mailers to clients wishing them a happy birthday or anniversary, and asking them to bring the card in to receive a discount. We also send customers thank you cards for trusting us with their jewelry and allowing us to repair it.

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

We have a lot of experience with other jeweler software, and The Edge® is by far the best I have seen. The Point-of-Sale module is very easy to use, from the touch screens to customer Wish Lists. My staff had no problems mastering its operation in just one day. And the information we gathered in just one year's time is exceptional. We now have information at our fingertips to take our business to the next level.

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 best money we’ve ever spent. When we first installed The Edge®, we took part in a two-day training session that got us up and running with none of the transitional issues you would normally expect with a new system. Since then, I’ve also gone to their seminars and learned additional ways to use the software to increase my store’s profitability. Quite simply, our business has prospered because of The Edge.

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.
David Fikse
Gerald's Jewelry, Oak Harbor, WA
We have daily reports that give us up-to-the-minute information about what is in the inventory. We can track things and bring in new inventory if it's selling well. Just as important, if a product line is proving a dud, the store can skip it and move on to something else.

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!

Switching to The Edge® by Abbott & Shapiro is the single best business decision I've made in my 23 years in business. Dick Abbott, Joe Shapiro, their staff, and their pro-active approach to jewelry store management provide a refreshing change from that of any software provider we've ever used.
