We moved to Garage Hive a month ago and was the best decision we have made. The system just get's better and better every day. The support from the Garage Hive team is second to none, with instant support and any issues or questions is dealt instantly. Software updates.........what can I say, I just can't keep up with them. If the users ask for something and there is enough interest, the team will just make it happen. Huge props to Alex, Dawn, and Raimond. You guys are amazing!!!

Far more than just a management system! Unrivalled support network going far and beyond the service required to make sure that the system and your experience is a fantastic one. I could not recommend Garage Hive enough. The difference this has made to my business is phenomenal. I now not just know but understand a lot more aspects to the business and can see clearly the performance of the business as a whole on the decisions that are made from day to day. There is nothing that has not been thought of, if suggestions are made for improvement and requests for change these are actioned fast! Regular updates, changes tweaks and videos made to guide you through these changes. Totally second to None!

Where do I start, we have just implemented this system to our Garage after looking at many other systems for over 6 months. As a busy independent with a small team, we knew we needed to change the way we ran things as our old system was beyond out of date, and in the short period, we have been using the new system we definitely made the right decision. I could not believe how our team embraced the change immediately. From the moment we went live they just ran with it (this was helped with training videos proved by Alex and the team beforehand), and as owners, the process and structure we desperately needed are just falling into place. We have never felt so organised, the staff are extremely happy, we are now very excited for the future and possibilities are endless . Especially because it’s dynamic So if you are thinking about a new Garage Management System then 100% I would recommend Garage Hive, you will never look back.

Neville Smith

Director

Owned my business for over 35 years, and during that time have tried and used several management software packages. Some we outgrew, some offered the dream but did not live up to their offering, and were slow to respond and in some cases none existent. In November 2018 after reading and travelling to Nottingham to meet with the Garage Hive team and their garage employees to get an overall feel from both sides of the coin we decided to bite the bullet and go with it. Well! What an amazing change! If you want to improve your business and are looking for software, the GARAGE HIVE is where you need to go. I cannot thank the team enough for the difference they have made to my business, and I’m sure I know many others feel the same. Make the change you’ll not regret it.

Best garage management software we have ever used, the support is unbelievable even the techs like using tablets and seeing the efficiencies.

Phil Miller

Director

Having spent a long time researching which garage management system would suit us, I found Garage Hive. It offered absolutely everything I needed (and more besides). Every member of the team have been fantastic, the system is faultless, and I'd recommend it to anyone.

Alex Gilbert

Financial Director

Garage Hive has provided the platform which has enabled us to take our business to the next level. As an expanding multi branch business we extensively researched the market for a GMS that would not only suit our needs now, but also have the capability to cope with our expansion plans in the future, with Garage Hive we found the perfect package. Garage Hive has created an accountability for everything we do, unlike our previous GMS, Garage Hive forces our staff to follow a process that is both logical to the industry and crucially, it ensures we operate consistently across our network of branches. Garage Hive has benefited all areas of the business starting with the technicians in the workshop who are interactively reporting on the status of a vehicle all the way through to the Directors analysing KPI’s in real time allowing us to react quicker as a business. It’s no coincidence that since moving to Garage Hive we have experienced a noticeable growth in labour sales, efficiency, rec

Craig Hewison

Director

I chose Garage Hive as our GMS after hearing the response of many respected garage owners who had switched to it; it was a daunting move as the system appears complicated at first. Within a very short time of using the system, assisted by Dawn and Alex, the feeling of trepidation was soon to be realised as completely unnecessary. The team at Garage Hive hold your hand through every step of the install and beyond into live use; always on the phone and eager to help. Although we have only been live for short of 2 weeks I struggle to see how we managed before with the lack of features that our old system had. I have been on the Garage Hive forum for a couple of months and it seems to get more and more capabilities as each week goes by. The system is updated according to consumer demand and every request is heard and if possible implemented with, quite frankly, an alarming speed, often by the next day. Coupled with PowerBi, the system will give an impressive insight into your busines

What can I say about Garage Hive except to say excellent with an amazing backup service. I have been in this trade for 35 years and never seen this kind of help and support from a garage management company, not just a garage management support team they hold your hands and let go gradually and keep you up to speed bit by bit.

Kirsty Watson

Director

Making the change to Garage Hive was a massive decision for us. Not only did it enable us to change software, but we streamlined our internal processes and what positive effects we have seen. Since using the system, we have repeatedly increased our sales revenue, actual PB months every month since moving over.

Shaun Miller

Director

I’ve been in the industry around 15 years working for another garage, in that time we used many garage management systems, they all did a job, but we wanted more from the system. In 2018 I decided to go out on my own and set up my own garage. I wasn't 100% happy with the other systems that I have used in the past, so I started looking elsewhere. I think if I had started my business without Garage Hive, I would be lost. With other systems I’ve used I could control the work, but that was it, really. I know hour by hour exactly what’s going on in my business, from profit and loss, technician monitoring, parts control and the big one for me is the reporting the system does, I can tell with a click of a button everything I need to know and my business. If your thinking about it all I can say is get a demo with Alex and you will have started your journey on one of the best decisions you will have made as a business owner.

Best decision I ever made, and it gets better EVERY DAY. I find it hard to believe. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Alex Lindley for taking the time to bring me on board – he had his work cut out I’m sure he had nightmares about my name appearing in his inbox or WhatsApp for months after. I asked the inner workings of everything, but fair play to Alex, and despite numerous times having to get clarification from the development team, every question was answered and answered well. Everything I asked, if it didn’t do it, then it was on the list and does do it now. After having Garage Hive for seven months now, I could never use anything else on the market – the wealth of information available is incredible. Once set up the information is collated automatically by simply doing your invoicing and the tech clocking on and off their jobs – the important thing is there is no human input relied on the make the information work.

Steven Paterson

Director

A fantastic system which just gets better and better. A support team willing to listen and act and a community willing to help. The improvements it's making already within our business is already allowing us to reap the rewards right from the start. Best garage management software we have ever used, the support is unbelievable even the techs like using tablets and seeing the efficiencies.

Neil Fitch

Director

After using another system for quite some time and becoming progressively more frustrated at the lack of support and speed of change, we decided to move to Garage Hive. The speed of development, the support and the reporting are second to none. The system is fantastic to use, it has a proper working schedule and is flexible enough to do exactly what you need to do with it. Couldn't recommend it more if I tried.
