  • See what some of our Motorcycle customers have to say about our software and services.

Albamoto Motorcycle Engineering

Albamoto have been using Catalyst’s Platinum system for several months now, and the range of features, coupled with the ease of use has been of tremendous benefit to us. As a new business, the support we received during installation and training was immensely useful too. Any small issues we’ve had (invariably our own error) have been resolved quickly with no fuss or drama.

The after sales support provided is 2nd to none. We would unreservedly recommend Platinum to any organisation looking to implement a dealer management software solution.

AMR Motorcycles Ltd

Having used Catalyst for many years with another company, I am delighted that we now use it here at AMR. It is by far the easiest and most instructive system on the market for use in the motorcycle industry.

The staff are at the other end of the phone and always call you back to help you with any issues. Any bolt on’s that we have required have been added at decent price and quickly. We also had to ask for technical help to configure our network correctly and felt that the nominal charge levied was extremely good value for money.

It’s a system we could highly recommend. I can also say that we have tried one of the others on the market and it’s not a patch on Catalyst and works out more expensive in the long run too!!

Balderston Motorcycles

We have been dealing with Catalyst for seven years and have found them to be both professional and helpful for both hardware and software.

They provided a straight-forward migration to their software & backup to help you get up & running.

The software is good value, reliable, relatively easy to use and is updated regularly to provide new and generally useful features! The latest upgrade has given us a step change in the ease of contacting customers for service and MOT reminders, workshop bookings.

Being able to upload our bike stock onto eBay automatically is quite a timesaver and is something that we use all the time now. We find Catalyst to be easy people to deal with, with the ability to talk to the person who knows the answer rather than be pointed in the general direction and they are there to help when needed.

Bill Smith Motors

I have been using the Catalyst Findit web site for about three months now and have found it a valuable free update to the already excellent Platinum dealer management system. It is simple to use and customise, allowing easy integration into your existing web site. It updates the website with a fully indexed and searchable stock list including a ‘Lucky Dip’ feature, at a pre-scheduled time every day, directly from Platinum, adding and removing bikes automatically as they come into stock and are subsequently sold.

All in all an impressive move forward for an already excellent product.

Just thought I would drop you an email to give you some positive feed back with regards to the Catalyst Find it we use here. We had an email enquiry from a English guy who was living in Russia, he found the bike on the find it site and sent somebody in to have a look, also we have just this week sold 3 used bikes to a customer in Germany which came about from the find it website.

Bitzforbikes

Our business has experienced rapid expansion over the past few months with online sales dominating our annual turnover, most of which are made on eBay.

Our Platinum software automatically identifies and processes these orders, importing sales records into Platinum and adjusting stock levels accordingly. What used to be a time consuming process (occupying most of the working day) is now fully automated, saving us both time and money.

Additionally, the transparent nature of the eBay link means we no longer have to distinguish between online sales made from the various selling platforms and sales made in-shop, simplifying the entire sale to dispatch process.

Without the Platinum eBay link we simply would not have been able to cope with the sheer volume of eBay sales.

Black Bear Harley-Davidson

We installed Catalyst in 1996 as our DMS when the store first opened, since then the system has expanded to include full accounting and all aspects of managing a large busy dealership. For us the system is cost effective, basically ‘owning’ the system rather than leasing as is often the case. But what for us is most important is the back up and help when we need it whether it be hardware or software, without fail we can speak on the phone to resolve queries and any issues that may occur which invariably are sorted at that point. The system has grown with our business and now enables us to interrogate various aspects to maintain and improve efficiency and enhance profitability.

The staff are always friendly and helpful which makes for a more pleasant day, always nice!

The support from catalyst is second to none and is a great reassurance if anything does go wrong with fast and effective responses to any queries.

All together Catalyst has and continues to help us create a smooth service for our customers while also helping us to manage many different aspects of the business.

Bowers Motorcycles

Today I was made to feel very old when I asked how long we had been customers and it was over 17 years.

We have always found Catalyst very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. Having all our needs satisfied from one hardware/software supplier has eliminated any friction that could have occurred had we gone a different route. Platinum software is very user friendly and is always being developed and updated to meet customer ever changing demands. The hardware is very good quality and competitively priced and the hardware department always very helpful with configuration of 3rd party software such as antivirus and backup programs.

I have recommended Catalyst to at least 4 of my friends and I know they are happy too.


Kind regards
