Gun Register

A quick introduction to the guntrader software

The guntrader software has been designed specifically to cater for the needs of the modern registered firearms dealer (RFD). To achieve this, the software has been developed by an RFD and since its launch we have added features suggested by users or to respond to changes in legislation.

The software has been designed to support dealers and save them time, especially since the introduction of the VCR Act, paperwork is high on our lists of daily chores.

Some of the main features are:

  1. 1. A full electronic gun and ammunition register using a barcode system.
  2. 2. It will automatically produce form 11s for your customers and will even notify the relevant police force via email.
  3. 3. A very simple to use stock taking system using the barcode software.
  4. 4. Other features include calculation of VAT on second hand guns
  5. 5. The ability to keep your web site up to date at the click of a button; so no more tedious time wasted having to update the web site by hand!
  6. 6. Tracking of guns sent on SOR to other dealers or sent out to repair.
  7. 7. The new advertising manager that lets you know how effectively your advertising campaign is working.
  8. 8. Plus many other features to make your time spent doing admin hugely decreased....

The security of your data+

We at guntrader opted to design the system as an offline software package for security and usability purposes. This means that your database, of customers and guns, is held safely on your computer where others cannot access, the added benefit being should you lose your internet connection you can still use your register.

This could however put you at risk of losing your database should your computer crash, or does it? To combat this, the guntrader system will automatically create an encrypted backup file which will get sent to your hard drive and our designated secure server. This allows us to recover your register should your system crash meaning minimal disruption to your business.
