We had used a number of garage management systems over the years but never really found one that could do what we wanted them to.
About 8 years ago we were looking move our business forward and become as paperless as possible, we arranged a presentation on GS Onestop and were blow away with the functionality and was exactly what we were looking for to move our business forward.
We signed up there and then and have never looked back.
Over the years we have made quite a few suggestions on developments to the programme that could not just help us but other users, a lot of these suggestions have been agreed and added to GS Onestop, it’s great that DDS actually listen to the users and continually develop GS Onestop to suit the ever changing need of the Independent Garages.
The support staff at DDS have been fantastic and always willing to help when we have issues or if we need new staff trained on the programme.
Switching to GS Onestop has helped our business grown from strength to strength and 3 years ago we moved into a much larger premises, we now employ 2 full time receptionist who have previously worked in the Franchised Dealer network and they have commented on how much easier GS Onestop is to use compared to the DMS they had previously used.
We tried other systems and, while each one was good at one or two tasks, none of them did everything we wanted.
If I can use this program anyone can as it’s very technician-friendly. While other programs can be confusing, GS Onestop is easy to use – from the initial job quotation and service booking through to creating the final invoice.
We have been using GS Onestop as our workshop computer program for over 3 years now. We couldn’t be without it, the program works extremely well and caters for all our workshop needs, from stock taking to invoicing – it covers it all.
The customer service is great, Cassie, in particular is super helpful and always goes out of her way to ensure we get any issue resolved quickly and efficiently. Training was great from the outset – super patient with us, and explained things clearly.
Really great workshop programme, would highly recommend.
We've been using GS Onestop for a couple of years: It's very user friendly and there's no financially driven tie-in. It has been our best investment over the last 5 years.
I’ve been using GS Onestop since its launch and have been impressed by its functionality and ease of use.
The Autodata Service & Repair function has been invaluable in helping me plan my day efficiently as well as calculating service times and costs. And in-built online ordering through AlliCat ensures I always have the parts I need, when I need them. In addition, Autodata Online is available instantly, giving technical guidance for the car being worked on, speeding up the repair process.
I recently had my Motor Codes Garage Audit, the inspector from the RAC was very impressed with the SMS communication function within GS Onestop.
I received a 100% award from the inspector
We have been using GS Onestop for over 12 months now and we are very satisfied with it. We found that it produced more professional looking invoices for us and we found the Accounts side of the system very useful. We have found GS Onestop has improved our image to our customers and made producing our year end accounts a lot less hassle
We were working by gas light, GS Onestop has helped us move ito the 21st Century
The system is used quite regular, quick and easy to use, all where you need it to be and efficient
GS Onestop was brought to my attention by Dunalk motors, they use GS Onestop and the owner of the garage said that now he’s got it he can’t live without it, so we gave it a go and it’s the best thing I’ve done in regards to garage management systems.
I like that GS has the functionality to create a customer and take it all the way through to invoice.
I previously used sage and entered all invoices manually so GS Onestop has saved me so much time as I can do everything in one place. I love the functionality of it, and the support is second to none
I would definitely recommend this system
GS LITE - BRILLIANT!
I heard about GS Lite from our Parts Alliance Manager, Mr Ivan Alli who asked would I like a meeting with Mark Strain, Programme Sales Manager to see what I thought of the programme. One of the best meeting I have had!. As a small independent garage we were struggling to find a software programme which would create job cards, invoices, etc...
This programme does it all and more. It is so professional. Invoices now have our logo on it, job cards and quotations are all in one place. Built in Autodata, customer look up, vehicle look up, diary, MOT, Service, Advisory reminders, really just too much to list. It is also compatible with the Sage programme - just back up and export over to Sage it couldn't be easier. The whole system is so user friendly. There is probably so much I have missed out but use on a daily basis, it just becomes second nature.
The support that a customer receives from the GS Team is second to none. Any queries at all that I have had using the programme have been dealt with in a professional, friendly and courteous manner by the team. It is also very reassuring that I have the full back up of these guys. Nothing is too much trouble.
Our summary of GS Lite "JUST BRILLIANT", 10/10. Highly recommended.
