ASA Tire Systems Releases Newest Version of TireMaster

NASHUA, NH (November 3, 2008) — ASA Tire Systems announced today the release of both Versions 8.0.0 and 8.1.0 of their TireMaster® software.

The new version changes the underlying structure of TireMaster with an upgrade to Sybase® SQL Anywhere® 10. This upgrade improves database performance and security and is a move toward making TireMaster compatible with the Windows Vista® operating system. This upgrade also paves the way for new features available in TireMaster 8.1.

Another addition to Version 8.0 is the new Service Estimator. This allows tire dealers to easily and consistently remind customers about repairs at future visits, without having to repeatedly look up labor rates and part numbers. Once a mechanic has created an estimate, the information can be stored in the Service Estimator. Many times, a customer will have to budget repairs at intervals, or at a later date. The stored information can be retrieved from the customer records at any time. As the customer decides to do the work, a quick click of a button moves the repair item to a work order, or the Appointment Scheduler, leaving the repairs that still need to be done accessible for future reminders.

TireMaster Sales Director Dave Vogel says, "We are very pleased with our continued efforts to offer the additional service-related features our clientele has been looking for in TireMaster 8.1.0. The new Service Estimator allows estimates for previously declined services to be stored with vehicle records and can be retrieved at any time. The new Appointment Scheduler will also improve performance by giving dealers the option to plan workloads days and weeks in advance."

Specifically designed for tire dealers who want to enhance service and keep customers happy, TireMaster is an integrated point-of-sale and accounting system that manages transactions so that tire dealers of all sizes can foster customer loyalty, improve customer interaction, and sell more products and services. Unlike cash registers and general accounting software, TireMaster helps tire dealers perform fast transactions, track customer history, market to and retain customers, and create an environment to increase tire store profitability.
