We have used Platinum as our DMS for a number of years and have found it to be efficient, reliable, flexible, cost-effective and simple to use. We use it for all areas of the business, including manufacturer composite submission and payroll. We use it to control our vehicle stock and as a result of this, can upload vehicles easily onto the internet, saving considerable amounts of time and duplication. The support is very good - queries and requests are dealt with in a co-operative and helpful manner.
All in all, it's an excellent package.

We have found the integration of eBay and Platinum to be quick, easy, simple to use, and very cost effective. The matching and updating of customer records is excellent, and it has transformed the speed at which orders can be processed. It has saved us at least eight man hours per day on average. This has given us the time to deal with queries more promptly, which improves our customer service. It also gives us the time to examine and look for improvements to our business processes.
