License Scanner/Reader

Pawn Power now has a License Scanner/Reader for the Pawn Power Software Program.

As of right now the program works in Florida only.  We are testing out other states to see if their license can be read with the new license reader.  If you are in anlther state and want to see if we have the License Reader Software that will work with your state, give us a call at 305-895-2627.

Below is the specs for the License Scanner/Reader.  We have tried out other readers and this one is the only we recommend at the moment.  The other readers didn’t work or had to be individually programmed.  We purchased this from

The most important part of maintaining your inventory is indexing regularly. We highly recommend you do this daily!  At the very least, once a week.


When you do an inventory index, your program indexes your entire data base (puts it into alphanumerical order). Therefore, indexing on a regular basis will decrease your chances of getting cross-linked files and keep your system running at peak speed and efficiency. Customer names are also indexed and new entries are then included in their alphabetical position when you use the pop-up windows rather that at the end of the window.

If you are on a network, automatic inventory index/pulls should always be done on the main computer (the data  server), with all other terminals (workstations) at the Main Menu, completely out of the program, or (better yet) completely off. The index should be allowed to completely finish WITHOUT INTERRUPTION!!!
