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.

The "Vehicle Workshop" Real Time Labour Logging screen has been given the windows look and feel.
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.
The number of analysis positions has increased from three to nine. This gives more freedom to further filter and categorise jobs.
Alongside the "Private" option in "Tasks Outstanding" (as well as, now, "Diary Entries") you can now specify a "Privacy Group". This is a group to which you can add other users who you want to be able to see the private task or diary entry in question.
It is now possible to optionally configure the vehicle sales areas of the customer retention centre to prompt customer follow up by the specific sales person who sold the vehicle.
The import now recognises and allows you to import times in the format HH:MM as well as HHMM.
A fault which allowed occasional duplication of workshop job and vehicle sale related retention actions has been fixed.
"Add or Edit Customers/Suppliers" was forcing new account codes to be of the format ABC123 (i.e. 3 letters followed by three numbers) when the system was configured to have no account code formating.
It is now possible to import and export logistics jobs to and from your website using the new Logistics Web Link.
Please contact your Platinum dealer or our sales team on (0116) 230 1500 or by using our website sales contact page to find out how your customers can view the status of their jobs in your Platinum system by having your website link directly to your Platinum "Logistics Management" System.
Vehicle information displayed on the job details screen now includes service and MOT due dates.
It is now possible to default job analysis codes from account analysis codes.
This feature requires configuration within the logistics parameters before use.
