Electronic Program Updates

As a user of our software you are probably entitled to update it to the latest version at any time, the only proviso being that the software is covered by current software maintenance. To have current maintenance, the software should be within it’s original cover period from sale (usually a year), under maintenance contract or under a rental agreement.

  • We are continually refining and developing our software. Updates can be done on as much as a daily basis. We don't 'hold back' software for specific release dates - our software is released as and when it has been written and tested.

  • Keep up to date with the latest software changes with our news.

The "Vehicle Workshop" Real Time Labour Logging screen has been given the windows look and feel.

  • As this part of Platinum has been given the Windows look-and-feel the Home (on-line help) and End (functions) keys now work the way Windows uses them (i.e. Home goes to the beginning of whatever you are accepting and End goes to the end) so you should use the alternative help keys listed below:
    • The F11 key should be used for the on-line help.
    • The F12 key or the "Functions" menu should be used to access the function keys available.
    • Buttons have been given a shortcut key (F?) for use in Macros and anyone not wanting to use the mouse.
    • Windows may be repositioned and changed in size - these changes will be remembered from one Platinum session to another.
    • The columns in lists can be moved or resized by dragging the heading for the column you wish to configure - these changes will be remembered from one Platinum session to another.
    • Any tabs can be moved by dragging the heading for the tab to the new position - this new position will be remembered from one Platinum session to another.

You are now able to set up the labour logging so that instead of directly creating a new labour job item each time a technician logs off a job, the time spent is allocated against existing labour items on the job. A technician can do this by scanning a barcode for the labour item when he logs on instead of scanning one for the job as a whole. By doing this and by using the new reporting tools available, you will be able to more easily identify the strengths and weaknesses of your workshop.

You are now able to log "downtime" for a technician; the time that is not spend working on a particular job. A colour coded overview shows what each technician is currently doing.

A technician is now able to add stock items to the job he is working on simply by scanning its barcode.

There is now a "Labour Activity Report" that shows a list of activity for each technician over a designated time period and a summary of the total time spend on each type of activity as a summary.
