Open
Ideas:
Create table of estimates for certain repair times so each of us can reference to give timely quotes w/out needing to ask the person w/ most experience in a given topic for an estimate every time someone asks.
Get small scanner and scan & file ROF’s instead of storing them in paper?
Add tracker for time estimates to Barney Machine and add excel insert w/ formulas to word doc for ROF master.
Create ROF’s for every quote so everyone’s on the same page for quotes & what to put on the ROF instead of arbitrary numbers. This will also allow for quicker processing of MIR listing orders, since Ahanu can simply print them right away, which is important since they need to be next-day. The “ROF” add-file column in the Barney Machine can be used to sync ROF’s between Weston & Ahanu, or whoever is giving the quote/doing the estimations for each inquiry.
Have William do all the soldering, send in batches for Ahanu to incorporate back into primary shipping flow?
Fix mismatching addresses to get rid of the Crane Terrace return address on primary outward shipping labels?
Get some sealable plastic covers for MIR and electronic component boxes to prevent possible water damage given the weather? I have received several packages which were alarmingly wet, and were only rescued from the rain because my parents saw them and brought them in for me while I was away.
Precut tape strips for return packaging for MIR’s?
Reimbursements Pending:
Printer (125-150) (Ahanu)
Tape (24) (Ahanu)
MIR Labels x2 (10) (Ahanu)

Thu, Apr 4
Open
Ideas:
Create supplemental spreadsheet to track repair order costs/profits.
Use Barney Machine for tracking repair details but do bookkeeping in spreadsheet.
Can generate receipts for actual costs to give buyer, as well as track for tax purposes.
Invest in small portable scanner to upload ROF’s.
Create folder for ea. repair order?
Link Drive files for prepared ROF’s in Barney Machine
Repair Order commission percentage rather than full passthrough.
Transfer of handling and testing of returns to William?
Give Ahanu a DSi testing rig.
Transfer handling testing shipments of new parts?
May increase unit cost to the point where is not worth it?
But may save time for Ahanu to focus on shipping, etc.
Get a heat station for William.
Ahanu approves, ask Weston.
Invest in good one, can grow into and write off as tax.
Task:
Give William the consoles that need soldering repairs.
Pass off returns Ahanu has already to William.

Open
Ideas:
Increase buffer to 2k.
Build as soon as feasible.
RO Commissions:
Continue to split everything, with small percentage commission tracked thru spreadsheets and set aside before splitting payouts.
Build spreadsheet first, stick to splitting everything for the moment.
Avoid using personal accounts to pay for things.
Rerouting return processing:
Can’t send to Weston due to mailroom delay, send to William instead from here on.
Get heat station for William, all are in agreement to spend whatever is necessary to get a buy-once-cry-once unit.
Overdraft Risk:
William will let others know if/when account goes below threshold (500) so that they know not to order parts. Otherwise, it will be assumed that we can order parts as necessary w/out express approval.
Experiment with using adapters to convert BOT’s to TWS’s to save costs?
Research/plan outing over the summer (AirBnB, etc)

Question
Closed
Ahanu Casey
Should we automatically check “Gallery Plus” for all high-value consoles, or only consoles which have ‘Great’ or better condition rating? Or some combination thereof?
Question Answered:
Put on any of the more expensive console types, any condition but especially lower condition ones (because it’ll help them sell more)

Create website landing pages?
Won't work because:
we can’t link people to a website from listings, so this won’t work.

Make the label ship from us to us instead of buyer to us.

General Notes:

Weston potential Screwdriver Interest:
Ahanu potential Electric Screwdriver:
Expensive, but may be worth saving strain on wrists. Will likely purchase for self, then if we find it allows me to significantly contribute to our console production, perhaps we can credit it back as a business expense, but only then. If we do this, I think the screwdriver(s) for Weston should be considered such, too. .
Currently at 2.2K in the bank 2/17
We’re pretty much out of PSP 1K’s, and don’t have the parts to fix the 2k’s
Switch chargers & charge ports?
Handling charge to cover the insurance cost, explain in the description.
Order more: DSL’s of Red & Blu,

mSD cards have been ordered, should take 1.5 - 2 weeks to arrive.
2300 in bank
Ask if storage people have wifi and if we can use it.
Make sure to test any screens w/in 30 days.
test formatting on mSD sets.
Once we move to larger unit set max budget to dedicate to set up the unit. Wouldn’t count against payouts, because it’s a business expense.
Startup club might have resources for this sort of things. If William has business under his name if it will affect.
Jonathan’s dad has a sole proprietorship which is $71/yr.
We’re cutting back on the promotion rate a little bit.

Goals: continue moving consoles, move to new Unit.

→ Need to implement a unit cost/part used column(s) to track the cost and profit of each console.
