    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.

    Reviewed on 2020/11/25

    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.

    Quick & Smooth changeover. We just purchased our 5th BRP dealership last month. We took possession and switched from CDK Lightspeed EVO to Blackpurl in one day - no other software company could do that. If you can use YouTube, you can use Blackpurl. These guys are a clear break from old-style DMS.

    Pros

    There are 3 "stand outs"

    1. Blackpurl offers outsourced accounting/bookkeeping services, and that has saved us a lot of time and money.
    2. I wanted my dealerships to be running on mobile devices and in the cloud.
    3. Ease of training and and implementation.

    Cons

    There are a few things that need to be improved. Right now, the PAC receiving function has some opportunity to grow in reference to the current challengese with Back orders.

    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.
