There has been a lot of news recently about a security vulnerability in a version of OpenSSL, commonly known as the “Heartbleed Bug”. OpenSSL is a popular cryptographic software library used to help keep Internet communications secure, so understandably you may have questions about how this might impact you and our software.
We take the responsibility for keeping your personal information protected very seriously at Catalyst and would like to assure you that with regards to the Heartbleed bug, our online servers and Platinum Software were not vulnerable. To clarify, any communications between Platinum and our servers were not exposed to the OpenSSL vulnerability.
While we always advise our customers to be cautious and aware of the security of their personal and company information, you don’t need to change any Platinum Software passwords in relation to this bug. We would like to take this opportunity to advise our customers to have a password policy for their business and frequent change of password is one of the many aspects of a good policy. See ‘here’ for more details on password policies.
We cannot advise on the vulnerability of any third parties and you are advised to seek confirmation from those third parties if you wish to know if your information stored with them was vulnerable to the “Heartbleed bug”.
Did you know that you can import your Fowlers Parts basket directly into Catalyst?Online parts wholesaler Fowlers Parts (www.fowlersparts.co.uk), have enhanced the integration of their online EPC site with Catalyst.
Catalyst users can import their Fowlers Parts basket directly into Workshop jobs, Point of Sale and Order Processing areas of Catalyst.
When Creating Workshop Estimates:
The process is exactly the same in Catalyst Point of Sale and Order Processing.
Day three of Expo 2014 brought in some interesting new leads for us. We had a number of constructive meetings with customers and prospects, and with partners for new developments.
We had the opportunity to introduce new staff to the show and let them understand what the show is all about.
Breakdown went smoothly and efficiently – the new stand is much easier to dismantle! Thanks are due to Nigel, Sarah and Mike for being ever present at the show, and thanks to Alex for attending and helping with the breakdown.
I shouldn’t finish without thanks to Natasha for her excellent work in organising and designing the stand.
Roll on Expo 2015!
We had another good day with a decent mix of existing customers and new prospects. It was a little quiet at the start of the day as we would expect for a Monday given that the traffic was quite heavy, but the middle part of the day was very busy.
Again we were busy enough that we didn't get to speak to everyone that came to the stand, but we tried to acknowledge those of you who we weren't able to speak to as you went past!
The new stand layout is working well and has achieved our objectives with the demonstration areas and the couches for more relaxed discussions. All in all, we had another positive day.
With our new larger stand this year, we were looking forward to a busy day and we weren’t disappointed. There was a steady flow of people for most of the day, and it was good to see a serious number of both existing and potential new customers. There were times when we weren’t able to speak to everyone who wanted to see us, so apologies if you weren’t able to catch up with us.
We have no statistics from the organisers as of yet but there was a good buzz around the hall.
