The Lawns Show 2015

The rhythm of the seasons, it’s summer and thus soon to be Lawns show time. Once again we’ll be in Hull for this annual gathering of the caravan trade celebrating it's 40th year.

The show dates are September the 8th to the 10th, Catalyst in the great outdoors!

Rugged Handheld Data Capture
  • This year will be of particular significance as well as demonstrating the latest features of our mainstream products as we’ll be demonstrating the year’s unique addition. It’s the latest in “on the road data capture” for field engineers. Rugged barcode scanning handheld pads capable of working with or without telephone signal, communicating work done and materials used and even photographs back to base as well as showing the field engineer work booked.

Looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones. Even if you are not in the caravan trade, come along for a chat and a cold drink, you never know, you might even leave with a caravan!

Honda Approved Bike Web Feed

As all franchised Honda motorcycle dealers will be aware there has recently been a certain amount of difficulty and expense involved in population of vehicle information to the Honda approved bike web site. This turmoil followed the appointment by Honda of a new company to administer the site. It’s best said that the previously widely used route to populating the site seems only to be able to do this update very infrequently and at great expense.

Bike Information Feed
  • Catalyst are happy to announce that our pilot project to export bike information including images to the Honda approved used bike site has been successfully concluded.

All users of our software can now achieve the required result simply, quickly and very cost effectively. The process involves no more effort than filling in a "Honda Approved Used Motorcycle" tick box for the bikes to be exported and subscribing to our £50 per annum service. Both dealers and bikes will of course have to meet the stringent Honda standards but that’s entirely beyond our control.

We will also require a data permission form before we can export your data to any third party organisation.

Simply contact our sales team to enable this incredibly powerful time and money saving feature.

This figure illustrates how you can increase your chances of a potential buyer finding your vehicle by using Catalyst FindIt.

This free service really does complement our company motto – "Your Success Is Our Priority" – that’s the exact purpose of the site, to enhance your chances of making sales, leading to your continued success.

Platinum Mobile Released

Platinum Mobile

Our Android app is now released and available to download, install and use.

It's a secure application designed to collect data in remote locations where even a phone signal may not be available.

Once registered Platinum Mobile will operate with or without an internet connection, automatically downloading and uploading information when the internet is available.

  • Included in this first release

    Proof of Delivery upload with automatic status change for our Logistic & Haulage users.

    Working in a similar way to Platinum Online's "POD Manager" option, Platinum Mobile allows your drivers to take Proof of Delivery images even when there is no signal and are not connected to the internet. The Proof of Deliveries are then uploaded to Platinum automatically as the internet becomes available.

Motorcycle Expo 2015 - Day Two

This was another positive and constructive day. The stand layout is working very well – having the extra space makes a big difference to the feel of the stand. This gives a more pleasant and relaxed experience for the visitors and gives a more professional feel to the whole operation.

Catalyst at Expo 2015 Jeff and Sarah

We have had a lot of positive feedback from the existing customers which is good to hear. Whilst there is always room for improvement, it is always helpful to hear that we are providing an excellent product and good service.

The prospects that we have seen have also been positive about what we can offer, and we look forward to working with them so that they can derive the benefits that we can offer.

Motorcycle Expo 2015 - Day One

Catalyst at Expo 2015

With our new larger stand this year, we were looking forward to a busy day and we weren’t disappointed.

There was a good steady flow of people for most of the day, probably one of the best days we have had in over 20 years of attending the Expo.

It was good to see a serious number of both existing and potential new customers.

Come and see us on Stand B28, we'd love to show you how we can help your business with our award winning fully integrated Dealer Management System and Service.

Motorcycle Expo 2015

Charles and Mike hard at work.

Setting up for Expo 2015, all good, did not forget a thing!

Looking forward to meeting friends old and new, always a busy show for us.

Especially with so many new features and ideas to chat about...

All done, looking forward to seeing you all there!

Come see us on Stand B28.

Bike Catcher

More great news for motorcycle dealers. We have created a new vehicle feed for bike advertising. We now feed to Bike Catcher.

Bike Catcher

This new and exciting web site has plans to shake the current "status quo" in on line bike sales so watch out for their launch at expo 2015.

Catalyst Product Release - CDM/S Lite

This product has been developed in response to speed issues encountered when using recent Microsoft operating systems for networks comprising only a handful of PC's. The speed problems apply to all operating systems since XP, they are unpredictable and associated with multiple use of the files and data locking. Basically everything since Windows XP when used as a file server for multiple terminals is prone to this issue.

CDM/S Lite provides a large speed increase over conventional filing systems. Is limited to five terminals and designed to provide great performance even in excess of that obtained under Windows XP!

The product is minimally priced as it's intended for smaller networks, installation is completely free with a money back guarantee in exchange for product removal if not absolutely delighted with the speed increase.

  • For networks beyond 5 terminals the full version of CDM/S is required.
