Pros: It is very affordable. The support is friendly and most of the time are able to solve your problem quickly.

Cons: There are a lot of strange happenings in this software. Payments on customers accounts will randomly change amounts. Nobody has ever been able to explain this. Workorders will randomly duplicate themselves. There are a number of 'utilities' that you need to run in order to get accurate reports.

You have to be vigilant about double checking your data.

Overall: Overall the system is functional. Although the software does run slow unless you are on a remote desktop situation. From talking to IT folks, the issue seems to be connected to the FoxPro database structure that it uses which is about 20 years old and most apps do not run on anymore.

But you get what you pay for. PTM-Vision is super cheap up front which makes for an enticing offer. But you pay for it in lack of features and sometimes glitchy and slow running software.

Also, the reporting is okay, although limited. And they are nothing compared to the BI reporting you can do with many of the other software options.

Pros: Comprehensive, powerful and easy to learn. When using all of the features you get a great deal of control over your shop. You know how long it takes to get jobs done, which techs are efficient at which jobs and how inventory moves. You have many powerful tools at your finger tips. We have compared it to every software on the market and there is not one out there that is a better value for a Heavy Truck Shop.

Cons: It can be cumbersome and a bit old fashion and does not lend itself to newer formats and applications. It does so much that you can't learn it all. The reports leave a bit to be desired but they promise me they are working on that.

Pros: Pluss has been our software provider since 2003 and I consider them an asset to our company. The Point of Sale, Work Orders, and Accounting systems are rock solid and I can run thousands of different reports. The software is customized to suit your business needs which is the way it should be. If I ever have a problem or need a custom report I contact them and the support is second to none.

Cons: The email module could be improved upon to integrated with Outlook to provide a more functional CRM system.

The system makes bad general ledger entries on vehicle sales. The financials can't be trusted.

Pros: Nothing and the support staff answers are lacking. "That's weird" is not resolution. Plus simply does not support their product.

Cons: Incorrect general ledger entries. I am the controller for a truck dealership in Philadelphia, PA. The inventory management system and the purchase order system crash frequently. When I pointed out the issues to Adam de Yong, the operations manager at Pluss. His response is no it doesn't. The system does not behave as the support staff expects either. A trusted IT professional believes our database may be corrupted. Pluss has denied and ignored my requests to investigate that possibility.

Overall: I am learning how to continually monitor and manage software errors.

getting any reports from this software is very difficult and usually the numbers are incorrect.

Pros: The support people are very nice the invoices look professional. It's not as expensive as some of the better programs

Cons: It's not a reliable software and I don' t recommend it for inventory or financial information the numbers we enter are not the numbers for some reason they change and you have to call support to fix the problem.

Overall: no benefits

Not easy to use. Software has a mind of it's own.
