Motorcycle Expo 2018 Day Three

Day three at Motorcycle Trade Expo 2018 was another busy day for our team.

Whilst some exhibitors reported “slow days” we enjoyed meeting a steady stream of new prospects. Predominantly these were progressive dealers looking to leverage the many features and flexibility of Platinum to help them manage and grow their business. It was great to be able to hear of their success, plans for the future and discuss how Catalyst Platinum can help them drive their dealerships forward and achieve their goals.

Traditionally day three at Expo is an opportunity to get together with the manufacturers. It is always a very satisfying and flattering when the major brands are willing and eager to share their tactical plans and strategies with us. As the proven and established solution for dealers, the customer engagement and reporting tools within Platinum help dealers and the manufacturers introduce and enhance customer experience, dealership and brand performance.

The press were very interested in our recent emphasis on after sales elements of dealership operations. Still an area of huge potential for any dealer, this is an aspect of the industry that is of huge interest to dealers and manufacturers. Our customer retention tools, workshop advisories, real-time activity logging, electronic check sheets are all key tools that help dealers build, customer satisfaction, aftersales performance and of course profitability.

By the close of the show at 4pm, we were still meeting dealers who were blissfully unaware of the artic conditions sweeping norther and western parts of the UK. We hope you all had a safe journey home.

Farewells said to our many friends and partners, we did as always take the time to thank British Dealer News, the event organisers, and their support staff for another great Expo.

Many thanks to our team (Charles, Jeff, Matthew, Mike, Nigel and Sarah) for all their hard work in making the show the success it was.

Motorcycle Expo 2018 Day Two

Day 2 at expo has been a great day to chat in depth with our loyal and long standing customers, it’s always important to share ideas and aspirations. Several key new prospects took time to meet with us and we are looking forward to some very exciting projects in 2018!

The Catalyst check sheet Challenge continues to be a fun distraction from the rigors of expo, no-one managed to find all of the faults so the technicians at Arnolds Motorcycles are winning.

Day one of this year’s much anticipated Motorcycle Expo 2018 kept our team busy throughout the day meeting new prospects and catching up with existing customers.

An interesting and fun attraction on our stand this year is the “Catalyst Check Sheet Challenge”.

Participants were invited to appraise a Yamaha MT-125 using our electronic check sheets feature and Platinum online to record faults/issues on the machine.

The faults, some easy to identify and a couple of sneaky ones, exist on the machine and participants had great fun trying to identifying them. Fortunately using Platinum Online on mobile phones and tablets is easy allowing most participants to beat the 180 Second time limit!

A huge thank-you to Arnolds Motorcycles (Loughborough) for lending us the motorcycle and especially to their technicians for preparing the machine and creating some very interesting and fun “faults”.

FindIt Facelift now Live

Our new improved, facelifted FindIt vehicle advertising site is now live!

It is slicker, prettier and more flexible than its predecessor. It’s even mobile friendly so fits beautifully onto your smartphone. We’ve been busy under the hood too so hopefully Google and other search engines will love it.

Best of all it’s still completely free to advertise your bikes, caravans and various machines. All you have to do is add information to vehicle sales and the rest is automatic.

The facelift is not entirely over though, so watch out for further tweaks plus new features in the coming weeks.

Findit continues to be free in spite of the considerable work that goes into it because we really do want to help you sell your products. Your success is genuinely important to us.
