|Bead Manager Pro jewelry management software.|
A jewelry-maker wrote to me yesterday about how to manage her jewelry selling business more effectively.
"I would like to keep better track of my inventory, components, sales and customers -- I currently do that in separate Excel spreadsheets, but it's not working very well. I also have a full-time job, so something that's easy to use is extremely important."
The answer to that question is Gary Capps' top-to-bottom software solution for jewelry makers (not just bead jewelry makers) called Bead Manager Pro.
Here are just some of the things it can do (and it works on a Mac or a PC and can be used around the world):
Instant stock level tracking and inventory management.
Bead Manager Pro will automatically track your inventory of
parts and pieces. Just enter in the
details of your parts inventory and then as you create a new jewelry piece add
the parts that it has taken to create it and they will automatically be removed
from your inventory. You can then see an
up to date list of exactly what you have in stock at any time as well as
receiving alerts for low stock levels.
Automatic pricing of your completed jewelry pieces.
With Bead Manager Pro you can automatically price you pieces
at three levels for wholesale, retail and direct sales. Bead Manager Pro will instantly work out what
the parts cost to create a jewelry piece and then markup the pricing
accordingly. With our hourly rate
calculator you don’t even need to worry about how much you should be charging
for your time, Bead Manager Pro will do that for you too and work out your
Profit & Loss reports.
Customer records and alerts for special dates.
Good customer service can make or break a business. By setting up your customer lists you can add
in special dates to alert you to particular occasions specific to your customer
allowing you to keep in touch and maintain a personal relationship easily.
Easy data export into excel format.
Bead Manager Pro has many pre-formatted reports for
Invoicing, Catalogs, Bills of Material and more but what if you want more? With our custom list views and the ability to
export any data to excel you can easily pull a report on any aspect of your
business in seconds.
Instant professionally printed labels, invoices and
Once you set up Bead Manager Pro in the Admin Section with
all your company details you will be able to print professional looking
Invoices, Catalogs & Consignment orders as well as address labels and
labeling for all your parts and pieces.
Notes and storage archive for designs details.
Want to keep notes on how you created a particular jewelry
piece? In Bead Manager Pro you can add
notes and images to your completed piece so you know exactly how you made
it. You can even duplicate pieces in
your inventory if you make the same piece reguarly saving time entering in the
same information again and again.
Easy backup and storage of data.
This is your business and your data is valuable so you need
to be able to easily back it up and store it safely. With Bead Manager Pro all it takes is a
couple of clicks and then you can store your backup safely away just in case
that dreaded day happens when you go to turn on your computer and nothing
happens. (By the way if that does happen we’ll just send you a new copy of Bead
Manager Pro and as long as you have your data you can be up and running again
in no time)
Invoice management and tracking.
If you sell items directly or use consignments to provide
your jewelry pieces to stores or other sellers Bead Manager Pro will track that
for you too. Your invoices are listed as
outstanding and can easily be filtered in the list views or viewed in the Customer
profile. Consignment orders will allow
you to send out items and then instantly turn those Consignment orders into
invoices when the pieces have actually been sold, automatically updating your
inventory. Plus if you want to create a
catalog direct from an invoice for your customer you can do that too.
Vendor tracking for your favorite suppliers.
Keeping notes on your favorite vendors is an easy way to
keep track of who you bought what from at what price and when. Just add in your favorite suppliers into Bead
Manager Pro and when you add in new parts to your inventory you can easily
choose from the drop down exactly which vendor you purchased from.
Tax calculations for completed pieces and invoicing.
If you hate working out what Tax you need to put on an
invoice Bead Manager Pro will work that out for you. Once you have setup your company details,
Bead Manager Pro will calculate the tax on all your invoices for you as you
