We are told by our customers that it is simple to use, intuitive. It’s integrated both ways with Britain’s most popular accounting systems Xero™ and Sage™. Preparation recorded and VAT Returns done.
We offer integrations with both Xero™ and Sage™. Our integration offer seamless, real time, transfer of data to your chosen system.

For many years, through the 80’s and 90’s, Anchor Computer Systems supplied their Seachange and Motorvator systems to the motor trade. Motorvator in particular became the system of choice for “car supermarkets” supplying all 4 of the largest car supermarkets in the UK at one time.
In the year 2000 this business was sold on to another company which itself went through major changes shortly afterward. At this point it was decided to withdraw from this market.
Stephen Andrews, who had been the sales manager for motor trade products saw the opportunity to re-enter the market producing AutoSales the definitive “Car Sales System” The lessons learnt in the three previous generations of software were put to best use in producing fourth generation.
Our philosophy is a small affordable monthly charge to cover the system, training, data, implementation and support in proportion to the size of your business.
The system has calculated it and your accounts are already done in Sage™.

Imagine you buy car at auction. It costs you £8800 with an indemnity of £94.04. They also deliver it to your premises for a further £80.00. You replace the battery at a cost of £43.99 and have a dent repaired for £50.00. A customer views the car and you agree a sale at £9750. He gives you deposit of £500 to hold the car until next Thursday, when he returns to purchase it. He gives you 2 cars in part exchange, the first is sold on at cost to another dealer for £450.00 the second he insists is worth £3000 though you value it at £2750. You give him an over allowance of £250 to complete the deal. He buys a set of Mats from you for £19.99 that cost you £10.00 and a warranty for 12 months at cost for £163.00. He takes HP on the balance, which pays you a commission of £574.27.
Together, we set a new standard for customer service and user experience.
