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.

Stock Location Delete Check

Platinum now protects against deleting Stock Locations that are currently in use. If you attempt to delete a Location that is in use, you will be presented with the list of places that the Stock Location is currently used.

Pensions Automatic Re-Enrolment

The pension Automatic Enrolment system in Platinum's "Payroll" module has been updated to deal with three-yearly re-enrolment.

This update will help you to re-assess your workforce on your re-enrolment date and auto-enrol any eligible jobholders that previously opted out.

A new payroll report has been added "Pension Re-declaration Info" to help you fill in your online re-declaration of compliance.

Export To Selling Manager Pro

With the impending retirement of eBay's Turbo Lister, you can now choose to export items from your shop to Selling Manager Pro.

Selling Manager Pro requires more information so you must enter details about the eBay category, item shipping and item returns on the "O+ Site Maintenance" pages in order to use this export option.

Stock Item Search

Extra options have been added to the "Advanced search range" allowing you to search using "Stock from" and "Stock to" and to search by "Sales price". You can also enter a "Depot" to see the quantity and location of stock items at that depot in the search.

Reordering Supplier Choice

When choosing a supplier the quantity and total price of the order required if placed with the supplier is displayed taking into account the pack quantity.

When choosing a supplier it is now possible to select the supplier price range by choosing the price column required with a mouse double click.

Adding a Contact from Contacts Due Simplified

Direct single keystroke or mouse click access to the addition of a prospect contact has been added and the screen enriched by the addition of buttons for common actions.

Extra Information in the Contacts Due List

The list of prospects requiring contact has been enhanced by the addition of telephone number, mobile number and e-mail address.

Point of Sale Quantity Warning

It is now possible to warn at point of sale if an excessively large quantity of an item is being sold.

  • This feature is configurable and the warning quantity can be individually set for your company in "Reports & Settings" -> "Maintenance Options" -> "System Administrator" -> "Platinum Settings".

Reordering Superseded Items

It is now possible to calculate and order stock items that have been superseded using the stock reordering option.

  • As this feature is only of use to a few clients with specialist reordering requirements, the feature has enabled in "Reports & Settings" -> "Maintenance Options" -> "System Administrator" -> "Platinum Settings".

Stock Location Validation

Platinum now stores and validates stock locations. Where previously anything could be typed into an item's location, now a saved location must be used.

The number of characters you can use to describe a location has increased from 12 to 20.

You can now store dimension details, notes and assign attributes to stock locations.

A new option "Add or Edit Stock Locations" has been added to the "Stock Control" -> "Maintenance Options" menu. From here you can add, edit and remove stock locations and there is also a special option where you can create multiple locations using a consistent naming scheme.

  • This update will involve a file conversion, which will run once only: the first time Platinum is used after this update. It may take some time, depending on how heavily the relevant area of the system is used, but will only be necessary the first time you use the software after this update.

Labour Code Search

Enhancements have been made around how the "Labour Code Search" and "Labour Code Properties" handle Platinum users and leaving dates.

It is now much more visibly obvious in the search if a technician has left and there is an extra option to filter left technicians out of the search results.

Technician leaving dates are now set from the leaving date on the associated Platinum user.

Catalyst FindIt - Search by Distance from Postcode

It is now possible to search for vehicles and machinery by distance from a postcode on Catalyst Findit.

By default, when you enter a postcode, items will be listed in closest first order. Alternatively, you can select a different order by using the dropdown near the top of the page.
