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.

Click here for instructions on how to install your program update.

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

Platinum Online Order Picking

The Platinum Online "Pick Orders" option allows you to pick sales orders on your mobile device without having to print a picking list from Platinum first.

You can pick items simply by scanning barcodes which makes the picking process much simpler and quicker, so if you do not already use a barcode scanner to validate order picking now would be a great time to start.

Job Planning Editing Legs

It is now possible to edit the main job of a leg you have highlighted on the "Job Planning" screen.

Security has been added to prevent the misuse of the feature to set a job as invoiced or to remove an invoice from the job.

Highlighted Mandatory Items

Items on the following property screens are now highlighted if they are mandatory.

  • Stock Properties
  • Vehicle Properties
  • Workshop Job Propertie
  • Logistics Job Properties
  • Logistics Standard Text Properties
  • Sales Prospect Properties

Vehicle Handovers

A new option, "Vehicle Handovers", has been added to the "Vehicle Sales" main menu. This new option allows you to create appointments for members of staff to hand sold vehicles over to the buyer.

You can set up criteria for vehicles which must be fulfilled before a vehicle is considered "ready for handover".

You must also have the "Personnel Planning" module installed to benefit from this feature.

eBay Motors Pro ad customisation

The layout of your ads sent to be listed on eBay Motors Pro can now be configured. The Title, Sub Title and main Description body can all be amended to include the details from your vehicles that you want, in the form that you want them.

You can create separate layouts for different vehicle types (cars, motorcycles, etc.) or different sites/locations or a combination of both.

Finally, if you have your own eBay shop on which your eBay Motors Pro ads are also placed, then you can specify which shop category your listings should be published. Again, this can be configured separately for different vehicle types and/or sites.

These new options are accessed via your Platinum Online, see below for how to connect if you have not done so already. For more information about this new option, see How do I customise my eBay Motors Pro listings?.

eBay Motors Pro multiple companies

If you have a multi-company organisation in Platinum it is now possible to combine the eBay Motors Pro ads from all companies into a single listing to one eBay Motors Pro account.

For more information contact your Platinum dealer or contact our support team on (0116) 230 1500 or by using our website support contact page.

Vehicle Search - Days in Stock

For vehicles with an "In Stock" status, the number of days in stock is now shown in an additional column in the vehicle search.

New vehicles also have their payment due and early settlement dates shown.

Vehicle Description Expansion

The vehicle description has now been expanded to 4 lines of up to 40 characters each. All relevant report generator and data import variables, as well as configurable document tokens, have had parameters added to allow you to access the additional information.

Transaction File Import

You can now import General Notes to a Transaction; and also specify the Document Index in order to update the Analysis codes, Description, or General Notes for a specific existing Transaction.


  • Document Index
  • General Notes

Enhancement - Workshop Job Properties

The "Workshop Job Properties" window has been made stretchable allowing you to view more items on the "Invoice Items", "Estimate Items" and "Description" tabs.

Sales Ledger Postings - Sites

You can now specify the transaction "Site" in "Sales Ledger" Postings.
