IS THIS ACCOUNTING SOFTWARE?
It’s not. Price-O-Matic is the leanest, meanest pricing tool on the market, but it won’t tie into sales platforms, it doesn’t track inventory, and it’s not designed to process non-production related expenses. There are great accounting systems out there already (try: QuickBooks, Wave, and Xero), but I designed Price-O-Matic because there was a serious shortage of pricing tools available for product-based brands. And I’m still confident that none of the pricing systems available today provide the wealth of knowledge and carefully-tailored tools that Price-O-Matic offers makers and product designers.
HOW SECURE IS THE DATA I ENTER INTO PRICE-O-MATIC?
I take the sensitivity of your information Fort-Knox-serious. Buckle up for on an onslaught of tech speak about the nature of the protections infused into this website…
The Lucky Break site is built on a PA-DSS compliant platform. That means that it’s passed the most rigorous testing imaginable to ensure the secure transmission of credit card data. And that’s not a “one and done” affair. This site is routinely audited by compliance scanning companies like Trustwave, who continually visit and test the site to detect any potential security issues (think: SQL injection, XSS vulnerabilities, outdated software, etc.) Those companies make it their mission to ensure that sites like this one are virtually impenetrable by hackers.
This site’s cloud-based, PCI compliant server is also routinely scanned to ensure that it’s running the most current and secure versions of the core software. This includes a firewall which only allows web traffic through, so there are no security holes which can be exploited.
Rest assured that the data you enter into POM is not visible, editable, or accessible in any way by any member of the Lucky Break team. Any hacking attempt on the administrative end would be futile for two reasons:
a) The system locks out any Lucky Break teammate after three unsuccessful login attempts.
b) Those admins can’t see your data even when they’re logged in.
Also worth noting: All login attempts (both clients and administrators) are logged and monitored. All data is automatically backed up hourly. And the entire site operates over a secure server in https mode.
I told you that we don’t mess around! *wink*
I DON’T LIVE IN THE U.S. WILL THIS SOFTWARE WORK FOR ME?
Maybe! Price-O-Matic can display currency in US dollars, Candaian dollars, Australian dollars, Euros, and British pounds. If you work in those currencies, then POM will work beautifully for you- no matter where in the world you call “home.” You can easily switch between currencies and update currencies in real-time with the click of a single button to synch current exchange rates as pulled from XE.
IS MY DATA LOCKED INTO PRICE-O-MATIC FOREVER?
I wouldn’t even dream of holding your data hostage! If you’ve ever used cloud-based software and worried about whether or not your information would be eternally locked inside, then please allow me to put your mind at ease: You can export any information out of Price-O-Matic in sixty seconds or less. My team built export functionality into the software and you can take advantage of it whenever you need it. The data is smartly organized and easy to manipulate and re-import, if you so choose.
WHAT DO I NEED TO POWER POM?
A computer and an internet connection- that’s it! Price-O-Matic is easiest to navigate on desktops and laptops, but can be used on tablets, too (some of the tables are large, which means that you’ll have a bit more scrolling on a tablet). Though POM will work on a smartphone thanks to its responsive design, I always return to my laptop for ease-of-use.
Price-O-Matic is cloud-based software, which means that it’s universally accessible from anywhere, so long as you have an internet connection. The software works on Macs and PCs and you don’t need any special software to power it.
CAN I BUY THE SOFTWARE OUTRIGHT?
When it initially launched, Price-O-Matic was offered as a one-time download for a flat fee, rather than a monthly subscription model. After hearing from makers and product designers that were interested in gaining control of their pricing structures without a significant upfront investment or purchasing software they can’t test-drive first, Team Lucky Break transitioned to a new subscription model that puts POM within reach of everyone. At this time, an outright purchase of Price-O-Matic isn’t available, but you can enjoy access for less than a dollar a day.
HOW SOON CAN I GET STARTED?
Faster than you can snap your fingers and wiggle your nose. Seriously. Price-O-Matic is instantly delivered the moment you request it. After reserving a copy here on the Lucky Break website, you can immediately log in and get started. Instant satisfaction is a beautiful thing!
WHAT’S THE CANCELLATION POLICY?
You can cancel at any time and you don’t even need to contact Team Lucky Break to pull the plug. You can manage the subscription from the dashboard of the account you’ll create when you sign up. Once you’ve created an account, simply navigate to the MEMBERSHIPS tab and cancel with the click of a button. I loathe when you have to call someone, hang out on hold for 10 minutes, and then be asked a zillion questions when you want to cancel something. For that reason, we’ve made this blissfully easy!
