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.

SALTEX - 2019 Day 1

After a successful build-up day on Monday, it didn’t take long for Wednesday to come around and with it came day one of SALTEX. It was an early start for the team, and with just enough time to add a few finishing touches to the stand and to get the laptops fired up the doors to the NEC were open!

Within no time the Catalyst stand started filling up with eager attendees, curious to see just what our Dealer Management Software can offer their business and all of the exciting new tools available to Catalyst users.

The rest of the day remained just as lively, and by the time the doors closed the sales team were left feeling delighted by just how many people had visited the Catalyst stand and shown interest in adopting the system to help their business succeed.

Thanks to all who visited the Catalyst stand today, we look forward to doing it all again tomorrow!

SALTEX - 2019

Catalyst at SALTEX 2019

The Catalyst team have been at the NEC Birmingham preparing our stand for the opening day of SALTEX 2019.

SALTEX is the UK’s national event for grounds care, sports, amenities, estates and green space management.

Catalyst at SALTEX 2019

Along with hundreds of other businesses in the agricultural and horticultural trades, this week began with a trip to the Birmingham NEC for our exhibition team to get set up and ready for the SALTEX show. With the van full, the team set off early from Catalyst HQ to get started on a long day of building. It didn’t take long for the team to locate the Catalyst stand, recognisable by its unmissable electric blue carpet. Once the van had been completely unloaded building the stand could begin!

Catalyst at SALTEX 2019

Within no time the stand started to take shape, and as the day drew to a close the Catalyst stand was complete, ready for the show to start on Wednesday. Scanning the room, it was clear to see the Catalyst stand was the very first to be finished.

For all those attending SALTEX on the 30th and 31st of October, the Catalyst team can be found on stand H102 giving regular demonstrations of our software and just how we can help your business succeed. We can’t wait to see you there!

Lawns Show 2019 Review

The Lawns Trade Show 2019 was yet another successful year for the Catalyst Exhibition Team. It is a show we always love going back to, which is why we have done so for 11 years now!

It’s easy to see why the Lawns show is one of the biggest caravan and leisure trade shows in Europe, exploring the site offers so much from luxury caravans and lodges, right through to Jacuzzi’s, horticultural equipment, and so much more.

Even when the weather changed and the rain started the visitors still flooded through the doors. It was clear that the unpredictable British weather was not going to get in the way of this show!

The team always come away from Lawns having met some fantastic new people, and this year was no different. We love showing businesses just why Catalyst is the leading DMS in the Caravan and Leisure trades, and just what it can do to help them succeed.

Once again we would like to thank everyone who visited our stand throughout the week, and a special thanks the HERCMA for another well-organised and lively show.

2020 will see a change of name and location for the show when the Lawns show becomes “The Caravan, Motorhome and Holiday Home Trade Show”, held at Harrogate Showground. We’ll be there, and we hope you are too!

See you next year!

Catalyst at The Lawns 2019

Royal Highland Show 2019

Since Catalyst’s success exhibiting at the Royal Highland Show in 2018, it was a show we couldn’t wait to return to this year. The show is, without a doubt, one of the most exciting of the year for our Agricultural sales team, and this year a record number of 195,000 people attended the Royal Highland Centre for a weekend celebrating the best of Scottish agriculture and food.

Catalyst at Royal Highland Show 2019

The weekend started early for the Catalyst team, who set off at 5:30am on Wednesday morning, in order to get set up and ready to go for the start of the show on Thursday morning.

Thankfully the sun was shining, which led to a buzzing and excitable atmosphere around the site, and as the first day got underway the team were ready to go and were looking forward to meeting lots of new people over coming weekend.

Throughout the course of the weekend, the Catalyst team held demonstrations of our dealer management software to a number of new faces, as well as catching up with existing customers and answering any questions they had. The Catalyst team also attended celebratory drinks on Thursday evening in the BAGMA tent, where the BAGMA presidency was handed over to Peter Arrand, as Brian Sangster stepped down after four years in the role.

Catalyst would like to thank everyone who took the time to visit us during the show, with a special thanks to the BAGMA team for inviting us along for a second year to exhibit in their tent.

We look forward to seeing you all again in 2020!
