Producer Suite Tools

The Producer Suite is a set of tools that integrates with RetailEdge Point of Sale.  The tools adapt RetailEdge to work on with a consignment store.  Inventory items can be set to different commission rates.  Payouts to vendors/producers are run twice a month, and include a detailed sales report for the store, a detailed sales report for each vendor/producer, printable checks, a check register, and CSV files for importing into QuickBooks.

What does the Producer Suite offer?

  • Vendor/Producer Manager:  One database for all your vendors/producers.  Allows for custom fields, membership fees, and more.  Pushes data to RetailEdge.
  • Member Manager:  One database for all your customers/members.  Charging membership fees are optional.  (A popup will appear when a member with an expired membership checks out.)  This feature, combined with RetailEdge, can be used as a loyalty program.
  • Internal Tools:  A quick view of RetailEdge data to look at vendors, inventory, and to help employees know what the next available inventory ID is.
  • Producer Portal:  This set of tools includes the Producer Portal.
  • Shelf Fees:  Optional ability to charge active producers a monthly shelf fee.

Custom Work

SeegerWorks is available for custom work! I have experience in a wide range of products and settings, including energy efficient building monitoring, farm store inventory systems, CSA management, and more. I would be happy to discuss your next project.

I have been writing software for more than 26 years. Local food and local food systems are important to me, which is why my family lives on a small farm and we have spent years connecting to the food system in our area. I truly enjoy supporting projects that connect the community with local food and local products. I hope to have the opportunity to support you in creating a successful, thriving store in your community.

I look forward to working with you.
