hello one and all, here is another question for the independent garage owners and employees out there.

as you may be well aware i am planning a new venture. at my current employ we use IGIS software for all the parts, invoicing, customer records etc etc. the name stands for integrated garage information system, i think. so i need something similar don't i? so can anyone recommend something suitable, or even igis itself? although igis is quite pricey compared to this...

so, any ideas? many thanks in advance.

well either all the indies missed this one, don't use garage software, or cannot recommend a system! if the former, any thoughts welcomed. muchas gracias.

thanks malcolm, would be really great to have some help from the guys here though.

ideal system will have parts stock/records, customer details, vehicle details, invoice details, invoicing facility which cross references with parts stock and customers, mot reminder facility etc etc. we use igis currently but i think it is overpriced, seems i can get what i want for much less.

UPDATE:

having used garage data sytems software, i am now ready to purchase - it does all i need it to. but before i do, anyone have any recommendations?? it seems no-one bothers using integrated systems, relying on paperwork still.

a bit of feedback, i can heartily recommend the GDS workshop manager system.

GDS have regular updates for the system, good aftersales support and best of all, it works without fuss or crashes while doing all i need it to.
