4 Signs It's Time to Replace your Tire Store Software

We know that owning and running a retail tire business takes hard work and dedication. Your operation’s inner workings must be running like a well-oiled machine, so you can focus on providing your customers with quality products and five-star customer service.

One of the most vital parts of running your retail tire business is your finance or accounting department. It only takes one mistake in your accounting department to cost your tire business profits, and more importantly, customers. Your tire store software needs to both accurately invoice customers and pay your employees correctly. At ASA, we understand how your tire business’s accounting should function.

ASA's software solutions let you do away with individual accounting software. We integrate the accounting function into our enterprise management software solutions. This connects your business functions in ways you never knew you needed. We’ve compiled a list of four signs you need to replace your accounting software for your tire business.

1. Accessing accurate data is cumbersome.

Running a business in today's fast-paced, technology-driven world means you need access to accurate, real-time data, wherever you are. As a business owner, not having accurate data at your fingertips could be costly to your operation because you’re spending too much time looking for it, hindering the ability to make strategic decisions about running your business. ASA's enterprise management-focused software solutions integrate all business functions into one application, allowing you to have real-time access to all of your business data, regardless of where you are.

2. Processing national accounts is time-consuming

When you want to run a successful tire business, you need national account access to companies like Goodyear, Firestone, and Bridgestone. Manually processing National Accounts is time consuming and cumbersome. Without the ability to connect to these national accounts, your business’s accounting function is made more difficult than it should be. ASA is able to connect you to these national companies all in one place, solving any inventory or accounting issues you may be having.

3. You have too many software login screens.

Over the years, you’ve realized you need to streamline processes and have bought a multitude of software packages that promised to make running your business easier. However, you’re finding that with all these programs, you’re now spending more time making sure each software is updated and entering the same information in all of them. While this may have been the most cost-effective way to run your operation as the tire business technology has advanced, you’re now utilizing several login screens that make it difficult to find what you’re looking for. ASA’s software solutions integrate everything into one program, with one login screen - and now everything you need to run your tire shop business successfully is either automated or right at your fingertips.

4. Customer and vehicle information is hard to find.

When you can provide your customers with reasonable prices and exceptional customer service, you can retain them as repeat customers. Part of your customer service is keeping accurate and up-to-date records of what they’ve bought from you before, with any special instructions there may have been for installing the car's tires. If the previous salesperson or installer didn’t enter the information into the system, or didn’t enter it correctly, finding your customers’ information can be tricky, if you’re able to find it at all. ASA's software solutions will automatically store this information during the checkout process and put it right where you need it for next time.
