Their GDS Workshop Manager software is currently installed in over 1,000 workshops in the UK and Ireland, proving to be a very popular low cost system for many workshop owners.

Garage Data Systems approached SmartDebit for a solution to start collecting by Direct Debit to streamline their payment collection process from their customers. Managing Director, Paul Setterfield commented “We have wanted to offer a Direct Debit facility for our customers for a number of months and our bank was unable to help.

SmartDebit’s Sales Director, Paul Simpson, commented “The management at Garage Data Systems Ltd acknowledged that in order to maximise their cash flow efficiency, payments for their product must be received on time, every time from each of their clients.
