An Unboxed Item Is Anything That Can Be Brokered
Even though there are limitless configurations of thousands of different types of machines and things you broker, Binder standardizes these real-world items in reusable Item Templates for defining items, invoicing, searching and more.
All items have a price type of one of the following: Seller Price, Offer Price, Advertised Price, Low Comparison, Average Comparison, High Comparison, Customer Offer, and Market Price and variations of these prices can be customized by you. As time progresses, prices tend to change and Binder keeps track of those changes in the form of Price History and is very valuable for tracking the interactions you have with your Vendors or Customers.
Items also have a singular status type of one of the following types: Available, Not Available, In Inventory, Sold, and Invalid Item. These types can be aliased multiple times so as to be more meaningful to you, e.g. Available can be aliased as Available—Price Too High and/or Available—Not Interested. As time progresses, status can be updated and Binder keeps track of those changes in its Status History.
The Binder Process
With hundreds if not thousands of found items, it’s virtually impossible to remember details about every deal. This allows an individual to dole out responsibilities to move the purchase and sale of an item further along the Binder Process. Any user with a Manager Role can conduct daily reviews each item and assign responsibilities or tasks to various roles with the relative roles. These tasks can be assigned to the Call Center, Buyer and Sales Roles.
Every type of role has an assigned dashboard that summarizes or quantifies all of the data that has been collected about items, companies, invoices and tasks. The Call Center Role sees summaries about notes, vendors, flagged companies, item ratios and others. Buyer Roles see similar details plus viewers for the companies that they are buying from and the companies they have made offers to. And the Sales Role sees summaries that pertain to Customers and advertised items.
