POS software managing secondhand goods buying and selling from Tower Systems


From vintage clothing stores to consignment shops, businesses are finding success in selling pre-owned goods. Managing a secondhand inventory can be complex. Here’s where Tower Systems comes in, offering POS software solutions specifically designed to meet the needs of secondhand retailers.

It all started more than 20 years ago when we developed secondhand goods software for jewellers who operated in that space. It grew from there.

We have been careful to ensure that our secondhand goods facilities meet police reporting and EDI requirements. NSW Police are the most advanced in this area and their standards provide integral guidance.

Secondhand goods management is a specialist field relevant to a number of discrete retail markets. Tower Systems is thrilled and proud to continue serving business in this area and as with all of our products we offer installation services and detailed training to ensure you make the most of your investments.

While managing and selling secondhand products may seem more complicated than dealing with new stock, with the right technology and procedures the process can be easily simplified and improved. Our secondhand goods management facilities are tailored to this end and are detailed and robust. From buying to selling and shop floor management, we track used product accurately, ensuring data integrity. The facilities assist retailers in meeting their regulatory obligations in tracking secondhand goods, something vital in today’s business climate. Business owners using our software save time, removing any need for obsolete record keeping – our specialist software maintains all best-practice records. This data integrity is particularly valuable in times of potential dispute.

Tower Systems goes beyond basic point-of-sale (POS) functionalities. Our software offers a suite of features tailored for secondhand goods for a range of retail settings.

  • Detailed Tracking: From buying to selling, every item’s journey is meticulously tracked. This ensures data integrity and simplifies regulatory compliance.
  • Valuation Tools: Certain Tower Systems software versions, like the Jeweller Software, allow you to generate valuation certificates, a valuable service for customers and operations.
  • Repairs Management: If your business offers repair services, the software can track parts and labor, streamlining the process.
  • Customer Management: Tagging customers with specific interests allows for targeted marketing to collectors or niche groups.

Tower Systems’ secondhand goods software is a valuable asset for a variety of retailers, including:

  • Antique shops
  • Thrift stores
  • Consignment shops
  • Pawn shops
  • Secondhand clothing stores
  • Jewellery stores (especially those dealing with pre-owned pieces)

Tower Systems’ secondhand goods software offers a comprehensive solution for retailers navigating the exciting world of pre-owned products. With features designed to streamline operations, ensure compliance, and elevate customer service, this software can help your secondhand business thrive.

If your business deals in secondhand goods, Tower Systems might be the perfect fit. We’d love to find out more about your needs.
