Blackpurl has provided a fully integrated scheduling, invoicing, inventory workshop management system for my business. It has made managing/communicating with our clients easier and overall my workflow streamlined and quicker.

Pros
I have found this product extremely easy to implement, manage and deploy to staff. The integration into Xero accounting package has been major advantage to my business.

Cons
There isn't much I don't like about the package.

I'M IMPRESSED!

I am loving it. It is still fairly new to us, and we are slowly learning new features as we go... but overall, I am very happy with this system! We just purchased a year membership, as I DO NOT plan on changing any time soon.

Pros
I love the fact that it's colourful, and it is so much more intuitive (Parts searching, not duplicating customers or service repair orders & notifies you of price list updates). It does what you expect it to do in specific situations. I was used to another very popular (expensive) system, and it just didn't seem to have features that I thought it should... BlackPurl does! The help community pages are VERY user friendly, and sending in questions or concerns is easy and you get a response within a reasonable time frame.

Cons
BlackPurl does not (yet) have quite as many price integrations or part fiches available as the last system I was using. However, if you can get your hands on the excel files, they will integrate them for you.

The customer service is the best I've seen. They are very responsive and have addressed our many needs and issues quickly.

Pros
I believe this program really targets all our needs with our dealership, from detailed service work, unit sales and just regular part sales. The best part is the fact that we don't have the large upfront fees for comparable systems, along with their very expensive monthly fees. This is definitely a program that we can grow with and not have to upgrade.

Cons
Setting up was more work than it should have been. Importing existing units wasn't easy and required alot of work on our part. Also, I would like to see an online sales component that could interface existing parts with existing online shopping platforms.

Pros
Part tracking is very simple & user friendly. Customer orders are easy to generate, edit and track. The cash reconciliation feature is extremely useful as I need this to balance with QB. Vendor invoicing transistions very smoothly into QB with very rarely an issue.

Cons
Until you learn all the tricks with the different features, it can be daunting & I didn't find the tutorials overly helpful with most issues that I ran up against.
