History and backgroundO


The DAZZLE PAWN pawnbrokers' system is the climax of over 25 years experience perfecting pawn industry software, and helping businesses like yours .

DAZZLE PAWN is the ultimate design from software-developer Derek Best, (the original designer of the well-known XPawn® system), and some very talented programmers and designers. Best has been dedicated to the pawn industry ever since developing the first PC-based pawnshop program way-back in 1984.

Think of it this way --- who would you rather have piloting your 747 as you fly across the ocean: seasoned pilots with 25 years flying experience, or rookies who just got their pilot's license?
