Windows 7 End of Life

As of 14th January 2020, Microsoft will no longer be supporting any devices running their Windows 7 operating system.

Windows 7 End of Life

What Does This Mean For Your Business?

Whilst PC's running Windows 7 will still function, there will no longer be updates or patches released for the operating system meaning that bugs and viruses will not be fixed by Microsoft and updates will not be available, leaving your valuable information open and vulnerable to attack.

In order to keep your information safe after this date it is highly recommended that businesses running Windows 7 operating system upgrade to Windows 10. Not only will this upgrade ensure you are safe from vulnerability due to an unsupported operating system, it will also enhance your Platinum system, with features such as Windows 10 built-in PDF printing, giving you the facility to send invoices & statements directly from Platinum via PDF.

How Can Catalyst Help?

As a valued Catalyst customer, we want to help you avoid any risk to your business. We will provide you with a free, no obligation consultation about how this change may affect you, and the options you have to ensure your companies data remains safe from any vulnerabilities due to an unsupported operating system after January 2020.

For newer PC's a system upgrade may be all that's necessary, however for older PC's a complete replacement may be required.

For your free consultation please contact our sales team, who will talk you through all of your options and answer any questions you may have about Windows 7 end of support.

Catalyst Kick Off the New Year with LAMMA 2020

Before the dust could even settle from the Christmas Holidays, agricultural machinery companies from around the world were turning their heads towards the annual LAMMA show. Two days of impressive agricultural machinery, among hundreds of other displays, lay ahead for all attending the show, held at the Birmingham NEC on the 7th-8th January.

After an extremely busy year exhibiting in 2019, the Catalyst Team couldn’t wait to return for what promised to be an exciting and productive show.

For the Catalyst team, the show started in the early hours of Monday morning, heading to the NEC to build the stand ready for the two days ahead. The stand was up in no time and the team were excited to get going.

Once the visitors began flooding in at 8:30am Tuesday morning it was all systems go for the next 2 days! The team were kept constantly busy chatting to new people visiting the stand, interested in seeing what our system do to help their dealerships succeed, as well as catching up with some familiar faces.

It was great to see once again that the event was extremely busy, and it’s easy to see why LAMMA is such an important event in the British agricultural calendar.

Thanks to all who visited the stand throughout the two days, and a special thanks to LAMMA for another well-run and lively show.

We can’t wait to do it all again next year!

LAMMA 2020 Day 1

After a successful build up day on Monday, it wasn’t long before the team were back at the NEC and ready to go for the first day of the LAMMA show. Once doors were open, it didn’t take long for the Catalyst stand to fill with visitors taking an interest in what our system can offer their business. Throughout the day the team remained busy, right up until the show closed at 5:30pm.
