Great news for consignment store owners! ConsignmentTill consignment shop software by RJFSoft has officially switched to Microsoft SQL Server. This upgrade means ConsignmentTill can run on more computers on a network and can handle more data in its database. Now ConsignmentTill and Liberty4 Consignment are the only two programs utilizing Microsoft SQL Server for their database management system.
This is a HUGE benefit to ConsignmentTill users. Your database is where your consignor information goes; where each item you painstakingly enter goes; where all of your sales totals go. So the database is a very important component and it makes or breaks, literally, your consignment program. A database managed by Microsoft SQL Server is more reliable, less likely to crash (if ever), and is capable of serving data to large amounts of computers on a network.
All databases have limits, but Microsoft SQL Server’s limits are much higher than databases such as Access, dBase, or FoxPro. Where those databases might run slowly with just a year’s worth of data, a database managed by Microsoft SQL Server might be able to handle 3-4 years worth of data on a “standard” system.
I’m really excited for consignment store owners to have even more options when it comes to finding the consignment program that suits them best. ConsignmentTill was already a solid program, being the only consignment program that allows you to completely customize your tags. Moving to Microsoft SQL Server was a great move and this will provide even more stability and scalability for ConsignmentTill users.
