How to Choose the Right Tire Software

How to Choose the Right Software-ASA Automotive Systems.png

The digital revolution has reached the tire and auto service industry as customers now demand service that is fast, mobile, and effortless. The right tire software can deliver all three.  You will have a competitive edge -- and increase your profitability -- if you deliver service that gets customers what they need, when they need it, and how they want it delivered.

Make sure you choose all-in-one tire software that includes point-of-sale (POS), inventory and accounting. Working with two different companies and software tools for your accounting and POS software needs can be challenging. If you are quoting a price and a customer asks for their account balance, you’ll have to close the work order screen and go to the accounting program. That can take up a lot of time. Choose tire software that comes with built-in accounting and the ability to convert quotes to work orders for a seamless solution. It should also enable you to integrate your national accounts, Epicor parts purchases, and payroll seamlessly with your accounting.

Besides providing excellent customer service, you also need software that drives growth. No tire and auto services business wants to be where they are today, tomorrow. Expanding existing facilities and adding more locations requires software that grows along with your business. At the heart of this process is a strong back-office that can wield control over every aspect of your tire and auto service business, including: inventory control, accounts receivable, accounts payable, marketing, business intelligence, reporting, point-of-sale (POS) and more. Software that offers this kind of all-in-one platform is also exactly what you’ll need as you add more locations.
