Barclays Business Systems has authoringbusiness management software since 1986. Biketech, the EPoS software for the motorcycle trade, is used by 500+ motorcycle dealers in the UK and Ireland.

"Over the last few years we have been approached by a number of cycle dealers who also have ties or contacts within the motorcycle trade, wanting to try out our software," said Jon Porter, sales manager at Bournemouth-based Barclays Business Systems

"We established that Biketech could be altered tosuit cycle dealers’ requirements. We also noticed that the cycle market didn’t really have a direct equivalent to Biketech being used by a majority of cycle dealers."

The Cycletech software has a core business module augmented by a suite of optional, integrated, tag-on modules.

"This means that Cycletech can be designed around the companies’ specific business requirements by only using the modules they require," said Porter.

"The software enables a standard PC to double as the till. The advantage we have had over competition in the motorcycle industry has been down to the easy to use software but, more importantly, due to the subsequent help and support we provide.

"Most of our customers can’t justify employing an IT specialist full time to look after their systems. We become our customer's IT department. We are available 9am-6pm Monday to Friday and 10am-5pm on Saturdays."
