A robust and reliable dealer management software is key to a successful dealership, and with our DMS, Platinum, you will be able to streamline all areas of your dealership, save staff time, and improve processes to help your business grow. Platinum has been implemented by dealerships all across the UK and Ireland for over 30 years and is the proven solution for robust and reliable management for all aspects of running a Horticultural, Groundscare or Agricultural dealership.

Our award-winning support service ensures dealers get the very best from our software and are never left in the dark should they require our assistance.
