The Gladstone Management Console (GMC) is a web based admin panel which allows you to take certain administrative tasks like Direct Debit and Archiving out of Plus2.

The Direct Debit module within the GMC allows you to run an identical process, but the main advantage is improved performance in the time taken to run collection reports. The main difference between the GMC and Plus2 is that the GMC process populates the results of the collection process in a new database on the SQL server, it is this efficiency which increases performance. 

Over time the size of your database will grow as new records are added. This increase in database size often has a negative affect on system performance. However, there are often a number of inactive records which are not required for daily business operations and therefore don't need to be on the live database. The introduction of the Archiving module within the GMC allows for unwanted member, configuration and transaction data to be removed from the live system and onto a separate database. The major advantages of this are the live database performance is increased because the size has been reduced, the records are still kept and can be used for reporting or retention analysis.
