A breath of fresh air for Sam users. Walk to your vehicles with an ipad, order parts, check on registration plates and book in the next service, quotes just released - will go from strength to strength. Nice and easy interface

Just converted a motor mechanic to Spanner Planner - The owner is happy, with reduced administration time and a user friendly interface.

Fantastic system for mechanical workshops - have been working with the team for sometime now. They have just rolled out some new features over the past 24 hrs. The support is fantastic nothing is too hard for them, taking on suggestions from end users. I am really impressed with the simplicity and richness of functionality. Say goodbye to paper jobs come in Spanner Planner and Xero perfect combo

Spanner planner is great to use, but the support centre is not contactable by phone. This is frustrating when your email is not returned.

Spanner planner was not up to the task - we tried it for some time but went to Workshop software - this is promising however not good enough yet sadly, this needs work before its right too and still feels beta, and for the money should be better. Looks like mechanic desk is next for a trial - I will let you know.....

Hi Dom Sullivan, just wondered how you're getting on with Mechanic Desk???
We're currently looking for software to run an auto electrical business. Wondering also what it was that you didn't like about Spanner Planner and Workshop Software?

We have just joined Spanner Planner set ready for training session with workshop Manager and website is down. Rather frustrating not being able to phone support emails take to long.
