It starts with a scan
As each new tire is delivered off the manufacturer’s truck, it’s instantly scanned and immediately logged into your inventory. Seconds after arriving, that tire is now a part of your inventory, recognizable to anyone using your ASA system at any location as being in-stock and for sale.
Throughout the course of a single day, as tires come in from manufacturers and are then pulled and sent to any of your locations to be purchased and placed on a customer’s vehicle, your inventory will remain constantly updated with a count of how many tires you have, in how many sizes and specialties, and at wholesale and retail prices. You’ll have a crystal-clear picture of your EXACT inventory at any given moment.
With ASA software, it’s possible for a single set of tires to be logged in as received, sold and installed on a customer’s vehicle later the same day, have an invoice generated and presented to the customer for payment and an order placed by the system with the manufacturer to restock the tire during the next day’s delivery.
In addition, the ASA system records the tire brand, size and style and assigns it to the purchasing customer’s account history so that you’re completely aware of the details of their purchase whenever they come back in. You’re also now able to email them 2–3 years down the road with a special offer to replace those same tires or offer an upgrade to slightly better tires at a special “friends and family” rate.
And all your employees had to do was scan each tire at each step in the process—minimal effort, really, compared to the way it used to be done. Your dealership is now wildly more efficient, able to move hundreds—if not thousands—more tires a week.
Daily tracking and recording of product promotions’ effect is nearly impossible without an ASA point-of-sale inventory management system. An ASA POS system also makes marking down prices and recording the markdowns easy: Instead of going through a mountain of receipts at the end of the day, our POS system calculates each markdown automatically as sales occur.
The good old days weren’t so good
Not so long ago, keeping track of your inventory used to be an extremely time-consuming manual process. Those days are over: Utilizing ASA's state-of-the-art inventory system, when you receive a tire order, they're immediately ready to sell and be installed, and you’re immediately ready to invoice the customer and get paid—all in the same day!
ASA's remarkable inventory system tracks everything: what day and time a tire came in, from what supplier and who delivered it. Whether you have 10,000, 50,000 or 100,000 tires in inventory, if you think you’ve lost one, chances are excellent that the ASA system will know exactly where it is and how it got there.
We speak your language (all of them)
The ASA Inventory system speaks the same computer language as almost all major manufacturers, so your ASA system can talk to their system and reconcile all orders and payments accurately and easily in mere minutes. It can also adjust your orders to min/max levels automatically based on what’s selling, without you having to do a thing.
