ASA Tire Systems Announces Parts & Labor

Scottsdale, AZ, September 10, 2001—ASA
Tire Systems today announced the release of “VisionPro”,
a complete point-of-sale integration with Wrenchead’s “Vision
Estimator” with parts and labor catalog.

The announcement was made at its National Client
Conference in Scottsdale, AZ. In partnering with Wrenchead Inc.,
users of ASA’s TireMax and TirePro products will be able to
quickly and accurately estimate the labor of all components and
the necessary parts for a particular automotive service job utilizing
the Wrenchead catalog database, then pull that directly into the
ASA point-of-sale application.

According to Wayne Croswell, president of ASA
Tire Systems, “In conversations with our clients, they stated
the importance of a fully integrated parts and labor database at
the point-of-sale. By eliminating the need to quote a job, then
re-enter that job into the point-of-sale application, we are providing
a tool that should significantly enhance the efficiency on the store

According to Kyle Johnson, V.P. of the Catalog
Division for Wrenchead Inc., “Partnering with ASA Tire Systems
is a terrific win for all involved. Vision Estimator makes it easy
to gather the parts and labor information to create accurate job
estimates. When you couple that with ASA’s point-of-sale tools,
tire dealers have a complete estimate-to-invoice solution that just
hasn’t been available until now.”
