Happy New From True Track

I would like to wish all of our customers a very happy new year from True Track!!

2013 has been another successful year for us. We have experienced growth in both our key markets, website design & development and Pyramid (Dealer Management System). We have expanded our customer base and also invested in a new member of staff filling a support/installation role for our Dealer Management System, Pyramid.

We have been extremely busy throughout the year with the continued development of Pyramid to ensure our system is at the forefront of technology to effectively serve the basic needs of business but also increase sales turnover and save costs by stream-lining work flow and procedures. We are achieving this by a number methods but our most successful has been in and around integrating our customers products onto eBay and e-commerce sales platforms.

A good case study of this statement, is Moto Centre based in Bolton, Lancashire. We met them last year at the British Dealer News N.E.C Expo show. The team at Moto Centre were looking to expand their business and their current system just didn’t cut it! Moto Centre have been using our bulk listing program to upload the Bike IT catalogue onto eBay. We also provided a professional eBay listing template to make the listings look more professional and since using our system we have trebled their ebay sales turnover!

To further expand this area of Pyramid we have been working hard over the last few months developing a dedicated listing module that can connect with suppliers systems for stock synchronization, products and images. This is a unique selling point for our system and has been piloted by two of our customers over the last few months with great success! We have successfully linked into Feridax& Bike It and are looking to integrate more suppliers in 2014!

The module saves hours of labour because lots of the information has been downloaded into Pyramid including product eBay Title, Description, Price and image. We have linked directly into the eBay recommend specifics, which means once you have chosen the relevant eBay category, the system then supplies you with the recommended eBay specifics for that category that will help ensure your listings get found. Finally and the most crucial aspect of this module is it links directly to the supplier stock and will un-list out of stock items to help prevent negative feedback if the item you sold is out of stock from the supplier.

We will be show casing this new module at Expo 2014 Stand 102 and Feridax are sending a Representative on Sunday the 19th to help explain the benefits of the listing module. So feel free to come and see us to get a demonstration of how it works.

We have recently launched “Pyramid Dashboard” which is an on-line website packed with True Track news, development, program updates and help. Its sole purpose is to inform our customers of the latest news and development from True Track and provide on-line help with Pyramid and related programs. You can access the site by clicking onto the help and support link in the top navigation bar within Pyramid.

2014 is set to become a good year for us and I am looking forward to driving the business further forward and meeting new customers.

Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year From True Track

The team at True Track would like to wish everyone a happy and prosperous 2013.

2012 was a very good year for True Track. We saw our business expand, offered more services and our customer base increased by a significant margin. We also made a crucial addition to our core team with Graeme Wiley our new Lead Designer. We now keep all design work in-house, thus we are able to offer our customers a more efficient design phase of any development.

2013 is set be even bigger than 2012…

We are kicking off the new year with the official launch of Pyramid DMS at the Motorcycle Trade Expo show at the NEC Birmingham, January 20th-22nd stand 105.

We have been working hard on Pyramid development with limited resources and are extremely proud to be able to compete with the larger companies. There is lots more development planned but the core modules are up and running in a number of dealerships and businesses across the Motorcycle Industry.

eCommerce and Web Design will see a big push from us in 2013. We offer a one stop shop for customers requiring a website/eCommerce shop and a Business Management System. By combining these two core requirements and keeping all of the development in-house, we can offer reduced up-front costs, lower on-going maintenance and a fully integrated stock management system. Why pay several companies to try to work together to come up with a product True Track can offer under one roof?

2012 saw TTS complete several eBay shop/store designs and eBay product listing templates. You can now have a professional eBay store and listing template to promote your products, and a fully integrated stock management system through Pyramid. We are expecting to see lots of expansion in this area in 2013 with Amazon integration also on our hit-list as many of customers are pushing for this… watch this space!

Pyramid Update.. we are intending to update Pyramid on Sunday the 6th January 2013. The service will be down from 6pm – 10pm while this happens. The update includes lots of improvements to the general usability of the order processing and stock invoicing screens. We have also developed a workshop diary planner using a calendar that can show daily, weekly and monthly views of booked workshop jobs. There are several planned near-future Pyramid updates, so we will be sending a full Pyramid Update Notice detailing all dates and times on Sunday 6th January.

We are working hard to make Pyramid conform to a ‘Responsive Design’ where the screen will resize automatically depending on device (desktop, tablet, phone etc) and screen size. The first phase will be ready for the planned update on Sunday 6th January and includes automatic width resizing. Auto height resizing will come later as this is slightly more tricky.

We expect IPhone support to be released by February. Everything works on the IPhone, we just have some cross browser issues with Safari which David will be addressing.

happy New Year to you all!

Android Tablet Support Released

True Track are pleased to announce that the latest release of PYRAMID is compatible with Google’s Android operating system. This means it runs on tablets running the operating system. We see this as a natural progression for Pyramid as one of its key features is that it is cloud based, running from any location on any platform and we are working hard to make Pyramid run on as many devices as possible. This a daunting prospect as there are a large number of devices with lots of different operating systems, browsers, screen sizes – this list is very long but we are working hard to make this a reality.

What is tablets are and what different versions are available? Generally speaking there are two types of tablet, the iPad made by Apple and then a huge number of other manufacturers making lots of different types of tablet but running Google’s Android operating system, with a smaller number of others running Microsoft’s Surface catching up fast. I was not completely sold on the idea of the tablet replacing desktop PC’s. I have purchased the latest Nexus 7 running Google’s Android operating system and after some time playing with it, I can see the appeal. However I still have reservations and can not see a complete replacement of a business desktop PC but instead see how both have a place in the ever-changing world of technology.

We are working hard to include iPad compatibility in future releases of Pyramid.

Graf-fix Limited Goes Live with Pyramid DMS

Graf-fix Limited launched Pyramid DMS on the 1st July 2012! Our first customer to embark using our new software.

We are extremely pleased with the results so far and whilst there have been some minor issues with the system TTS have extinguished the problems within hours. Graf-fix migrated from another DMS which TTS provided a seamless transition and early reports show the customer is already benefiting from this change.
