Data Age© Business Systems Announces Acquisition of PawnMaster® and other DataAge products by Bravo Store Systems
CLEARWATER, FL, Tuesday January 30, 2024 – In a significant development for the pawn industry, DataAge Business Systems, the longest-standing and largest software provider in the pawn industry, announced today that all its products, including PawnMaster, have been acquired by Bravo Store Systems, a pioneering force in software for the pawn and specialty retail industries.
Data Age assets will become wholly owned products of Bravo. Bravo acquired PawnMaster Classic, PawnMaster Ignite, AdvanceMaster®, CheckMaster®, Buy/Sell Plus™, TitleLoan™, CrossPostIt, LiquorTraks POS, DigiShield and EForo. Users of these products, as well as many of the DataAge employees who supported them, are now welcomed into Bravo as its newest customers and employees, respectively.
Tom Streng, the departing CEO of DataAge, shared his heartfelt reflections on the acquisition, expressing deep gratitude for the privilege of serving the pawn industry and the dedicated employees at DataAge. He remarked, “Throughout my journey with DataAge, I have been profoundly grateful to contribute to the growth of the pawn industry and work alongside an exceptional team of customers and employees. My end goal has always been to find a transition where my customers and employees are taken care of. I am confident that this transition will bring about positive transformations for the entire pawn industry.”
This strategic move combines the strengths of both platforms under the Bravo brand, setting the stage for groundbreaking advancements in technology solutions, expanded services, and unmatched support for pawnbrokers and specialty retailers.
Tally Mack, Bravo’s CEO, shared her enthusiasm about the acquisition, expressing, “I am truly honored by this milestone for Bravo. Welcoming PawnMaster users and employees into the Bravo fold is an incredible opportunity. Our excitement is centered on ushering in a new era of software innovation for pawnbrokers. Combining PawnMaster’s profound industry knowledge with Bravo’s customer-centric approach and innovative products, we aspire to deliver unparalleled value to our customers and enhance services for the communities served by pawnbrokers.”
Streng emphasized the significance of bringing together the two strongest software companies in the industry and the collaboration of the two best teams. “This acquisition means more than a business transaction; it signifies a union of expertise and dedication as PawnMaster employees converge with the team at Bravo. The pawn industry will benefit from an exceptional team of pawnbroker advocates, collectively working to introduce stronger solutions and empower pawnbrokers to provide even better services to their customers. I am excited about the possibilities that lie ahead for the pawn industry because of this acquisition and know that Bravo will remain committed to maintaining the highest standards of excellence, transparency, and customer satisfaction throughout the transition process.”
