ASA Tire Systems And X-Charge Partner To Bring Integrated Web-Based Credit Card Transaction Processing To Independent Tire Dealers

Nashua, NH – February 8, 2005 - ASA Tire Systems, the leading software developer for the tire industry, and X-charge, the leading provider of web-based credit card transaction processing announce a partnership to provide tire dealers with integrated point of sale credit card processing. The partnership will allow tire dealers utilizing ASA’s TreadX, TireMax and TirePro software applications to eliminate multiple steps in the credit card payment and authorization process while minimizing their processing fees.

Available immediately, this solution allows credit card sales to be processed directly through the ASA point of sale applications. The transactions are immediately transmitted to X-charge for authorization and processing,

“ASA Tire Systems is proud to offer this solution to our customers,” said David Duchesne, Director of Sales & Marketing for ASA Tire Systems. “Most tire dealers have to enter the sale into their point of sale systems, then have to go through a separate step for the authorization process. This partnership allows our clients to reduce the time needed to process sales, making the customer experience more enjoyable. Combined with the competitive rates offered by X-charge, it is truly a winning proposition for our clients.”

“We are excited to be partnering with ASA Tire Systems,” said Chester Ritchie, Vice President of Marketing for CAM Commerce Solutions. “The application of integrated payment processing within the ASA Tire Systems software will result in immediate benefits for their customers. Customers will now be able to reduce the amount of time when accepting electronic payments and further save time with monthly reconciliation auditing. This integrated approach also reduces the costs of accepting electronic payments by offering: aggressive rates, eliminating errors, and eliminating the need for dedicated processing equipment.”
