PlateSync® Software

Our advanced PlateSync® number plate designing software syncs number plate records to the cloud automatically, making record keeping simple. We'll keep you up to date with all the current number plate standards, including the upcoming BS AU 145e.

Secure cloud-based records storage

High security cloud-based servers hold your data off-site to minimise data loss risk. However, any time you as Authorised Personnel need to view the data, you can simply login and your data is instantly available to you from anywhere in the world.


Automatic record keeping to DVLA standards

Our number plate software will automatically upload the records of plate registrations printed, by whom and on what date and time and retains them for when you need to view them, providing you have an internet connection. PlateSync will also securely store your customers document details, such as their V5C reference number and personal I.D.

For more information regarding what records need to be kept, find out what your responsibilities as a number plate supplier are.


GDPR Data Protection compliant

In May 2018, stringent new regulation on data processing known as General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force in the UK and EU. PlateSync is fully compliant with all the requirements of GDPR, including protections of individuals; rights around processing of DVLA-mandated records. Data is stored for as long as legally required, and no longer.

If any changes are made to GDPR, we can send you automatic PlateSync updates to ensure you always remain compliant.


BS AU 145e compliant

In September 2021, a new number plate standard (BS AU 145e) is coming into effect. This means changes to plate durability, legal plate-design and an updated standard mark, making number plates more robust and secure for all UK vehicles. PlateSync is fully compliant with all BS AU 145e requirements, and getting ready for the change is as simple as keeping your PlateSync software up to date.

Find out what BS AU 145e means for you with our 2-minute summary video.

Usage reporting

Authorised Personnel can check the number of plates printed on a detailed online report, including operator name, date and time. You will also be able to view the recorded customer documents, such as entitlement to the registration and personal I.D. If you’re part of a group or have multiple branches, PlateSync can structure your automated monthly reports to give you control of each individual site.
