“Biscount has worked closely with Suppliers within the Outdoor Power Equipment Industry to ensure that our software is always at the forefront of new technologies and features on offer from Suppliers to their Dealers.”

Outdoor Power Equipment (OPE)

 

Biscount was originally designed for Dealers within the Australian OPE industry, written by a Dealer who saw the need for a specialised Business Management System which would save time during a busy day and assist in increasing the business bottom line.

 

Over close to three decades, Biscount has evolved with the needs of its Dealers, adding new functionality and features based on requests from Dealers alike, and what the team behind Biscount knows will help to benefit a Dealership.

 

In addition, Biscount has worked closely with Suppliers within the Outdoor Power Equipment Industry to ensure that our software is always at the forefront of new technologies and features on offer from Suppliers to their Dealers.

✔Send orders directly to Briggs and Stratton, Cox, GA Spares, Honda, Husqvarna, JaxMax, John Deere, MTD and Stihl from Biscount.

 

✔Orders to other suppliers can simply be sent via email – minimising the need to double-handle data

 

✔Create customer orders, quotes, sales and workshop jobs using Picklists created in Supplier Imaging Systems

 

✔Streamline your receiving of stock using the supplier PDF invoices from over 64 suppliers. Electronic input (with the inclusion of serial numbers) minimises input errors and maximises efficiency.

✔Sell units via their serial number and assign additional information such as engine number to a customer equipment listing

✔An educational version of Biscount has been made available to TAFEs within VIC, NSW and QLD and other training institutions nationwide.  Benefits include:

 

✔Providing OPE apprentices a better understanding of how productivity and efficiency is measured within a workshop environment;

 

✔Ensuring an apprentice has a level of confidence upon entering the OPE service industry;

 

✔Maximising the benefits of hiring an apprentice from the perspective of a Dealer from Day One.

 

✔Allowing Biscount to give back to an industry that it has been an integral part of in the past,  with the intention to continuing this strong relationship in the years to come.

Biscount maintains a long-standing business relationship with the Outdoor Power Equipment Australasia publication, providing business advice to the entire OPE community.

 

Coupled with this, since entering the NZ OPE market, advertising and editorial content has also commenced with the NZ Outdoor Power Equipment publication.

Client Testimonials - Outdoor Power Equipment Clients and their thoughts

Sunshine State Mowers

“We at Sunshine State Mowers ran a business program sourced from the US for around 19 years and while we were reasonably happy with it , we had come to a point that there were too many things that it couldn’t do , such as interfacing with our suppliers in regard to uploading Invoices , Warranty registration , stock control detail , automatic SMS and e-mail sending and other things. We knew that replacing it was imminent but I kept putting it off because I dreaded the thought of having to suffer a myriad of problems in the changeover.

 

I started discussion with Stephen from Biscount in the latter half of 2018 and he ran through all the features and benefits of Biscount and provided me with on-line demonstrations and tutorial. From there we progressed to migrating our data base across and after tweaking a few things we went through a period where we got familiar with everything until we were very comfortable with Biscount and made the decision to go live with Biscount at the end of 2018 .

 

Stephen and Peter at Biscount were very patient and understanding of my concerns in “ flicking the switch “ and were happy to let me choose when I was ready. The changeover was almost an anti-climax and apart from a couple of minor adjustments went very smoothly . My old data base was 19 years old and very large , with many corruptions and problems but we sorted these in a very timely manner. Six months down the track we are more than happy with Biscount . We have our data to a level that we have never had before and while we are still fine tuning some of our systems , Biscount has been a dream to use in our day to day operation.

 

I want to thank Stephen and Peter for making it all so easy and look forward to a long association with Biscount .”

Pakenham Mowers & Chainsaws

“Biscount has been part of Pakenham Mowers and Chainsaws for the last 25 years. We have seen the package grow from its first conception to what it is now. The program has become a major part of our business and we could not operate without it. The program does everything we need from ordering through to workshop job cards and point of sale and more.

 

The SMS feature and functionality from when jobs are done to when spare parts come in are a cost savings alone. The ability to directly import pdf files saves hours of work that we used to do manually. The program continues to evolve from strength to strength.

 

We started with one computer on the front counter using Biscount for spare parts look up and now run over 10 computers with each work bench operating Biscount. The team are always available and happy to help with any issues or suggestions that we may have. To put it simply Biscount saves us time so we can spend more servicing our customers.”

Stihl Shop, Port Macquarie

“We have used the Biscount program since 1993 & have grown within the industry together and now have 4 workstations running which includes one for the mechanics in the workshop.


The easy manoeuvrability within the program has made the point of sale system & stock control the easiest accessible tool that all staff have been able to use.
Sales, workshop repairs, invoicing, orders & even updates to looking up serial numbers for either new or used machines at a fingertip. To be able to retrace a customers repairs & sales history within seconds has proven to be very successful.
It has saved hours of manually writing out receipts, invoices, & quotes for customers.


Workshop repairs are easily checked for profitability, completion & also collection.
For the last 26 years we have used Biscount and it has not failed us yet & we would be lost without it.


The program together with the friendly support team helps running a successful business with great pleasure & ease.”

“We have been working with Biscount for 10 years now and over this time they have assisted us to take control of our business stock management and retail systems. During this period they have listened to many suggestions and implemented these changes into Biscount so we can better manage our business.

 

In addition I can go away on holiday with piece of mind that if anything happens to our systems while I am gone, Biscount will logon and take control of the situation fixing the problems remotely so my staff can rest easy. Thanks for your support and listening Biscount.”

Prompt Mower Group

“We as a business have been using Biscount for around 10 years. We love Biscount because of its ease of use for both staff and our bookkeeper. We have tried other systems in the past but have found that none can offer what Biscount does. Whenever we have an issue with the software, the Biscount team have always been there for us, not just with getting us going but adding value to system as well. Our staff appreciate how straightforward the system is to use. We love the SMS message service, it saves our staff so much time in having to call customers when repairs are complete. We are set up to export warranties direct to manufacturers, which is also a massive time saver. We are very happy to be working with the Biscount system and hope to continue to grow with the team at Biscount.”

Mackay Outdoor Power Centre

“We entered the power equipment retail industry in 2016 with very little experience in the field. The first thing we had to get our heads around was the point of sales process. We had Biscount running at the time and with great pleasure got the opportunity to deal with the team behind Biscount.

 

These blokes calmed our nerves rapidly as they demonstrated great understanding of the industry as well as the software they have developed. Through the past few years Biscount has improved in leaps and bounds including the new more modern look and capabilities. After our first full year in the industry we were honoured to be announced as Honda’s, Australia and Queensland dealer of the year.

 

I personally attribute a lot of this success to Biscount, as I can at any time and anywhere have a finger on the pulse with peace of mind that I have a system that understands our industry and assists us with improving our productivity and increase our value to our customers. We have grown to know the whole team at Biscount and find them to be extremely professional and effective in dealing with everything we require of them.”
