I wish someone could sit in my seat all day and see just how many calls The Computer Peeps get that seem to be issues with consignment software, tag printers, receipt printers, etc…only to find, it was a power-related issue.
The Computer Peeps monitor a variety of things for consignment store owners. There are plenty of ‘monitoring’ systems and software out there and you can pay a lot of money for said systems, but simply buying a monitoring service and trying to resell it as a ‘managed service provider’, isn’t the same as what The Computer Peeps do.
Consignment software users who are also utilizing integrated credit card processing, typically utilize one of a few PIN Pads. Ingenico is one of the more-common PIN Pads in-use. From time to time, you might need to reboot your Ingenico iSC Touch 250 PIN Pad — e.g. to change the comm mode, to recalibrate the touch screen, etc.
You don’t have to pull the power cable or track down the power plug. Instead, just press and hold the Clear and – buttons until it reboots:
Peeps’ Consignment Software, as well as other consignment software, utilize the Ingenico series of PIN Pads for credit card processing. Hopefully this saves someone out there some time vs. trying to track down the power plug. 🙂
As I go through each of our clients’ systems and perform end-of-year checkups, maintenance, and backups, I wanted to document some of the things we do.
If you utilize ConsignPro software, you’ve probably been told to ‘do an end of year backup’.
The new v2.07 update is here! We’ve added a lot of new features, fixed some outstanding bugs, and all-in-all, v2.07 is a great update.
In the years I’ve been monitoring and maintaining systems for consignment store owners, I’ve found ConsignPro (CP.exe) has a propensity to crash at the end of the day, when closing.
