I have been using Workshop Software in my tyre and mechanical business for over six months now and I couldn't be happier. In terms of value for money Workshop Software is awesome. I had a look at some other options and they were expensive and also way too in-depth. The best thing about Workshop Software is it is super intuitive. It takes no time at all when training new people. I would definitely recommend this software.

HI Paul,
We've found a lot of people in the same situation in relation to not being able to apply payments.
Would it be possible for you to contact our office (or we can call you if you like), to discuss what you're trying to achieve. You can contact us on 1300 729 658.

Hi Samantha,
We are looking to leave Spanner Planner (NZ hours for help desk only) because we can no longer apply payment to invoices in Spanner, and now there are bugs with synchronising invoices. We are looking at Workshop and Mechanic Desk as alternatives. Unfortunately Mechanic desk thus far cannot export reports to excel.

Hey Samantha, this page is just for the review of Workshop Software (which is why you can't add more than one comment!). You'll be much more likely to get a response if you re-post your comment here. Also I'm sure that if you do decide to use Workshop Software, they'd appreciate it if you then changed this to a review :)

I have reviewed SpannerPlanner quite heavily, can anyone tell me how Workshop Software is better, if they also have reviewed Spanner Planner? I have two clients looking to move to a mechanical software solution with XERO.

Our firm recently setup Workshop Software for one of our clients, and we were very impressed at the user interface, ease of Xero integration, and the support we received. They also provide regular (and FREE) training webinars to help users get the most out of the software. Highly recommended add-on.

Workshop Software is easy to pick-up and simple to use and user friendly! Love the Invoicing side of it and the support we receive.

Having searched at length for an affordable software program that suits our business needs, I am more than impressed with Workshop Software. The thing I love most is that the beautiful team at workshop are readily available to assist you with your set up and any questions you have. You can also make suggestions for changes, and they modify the system accordingly, if it is achievable.
Weekly training sessions are available, to guide you through program as well.
We love the simplicity of the program, enabling us to spend less time invoicing and more time fixing cars. There is also the convenience of being able to access your file from anywhere, as it is "in the cloud" . Our Automotive business is extremely busy , and being a parts distributor as well , the inventory system for our Parts/Stock is perfect for our business.
All this plus the convenience of syncing to xero for all our accounting needs. No double handling come BAS time. So if your after a fast, affordable and reliable system, this is the one for you.
