ASA software meets Yokohama's requirements

Posted on March 14, 2014

ASA Automotive Systems has introduced ASA Yokohama Interface software that complies with Yokahoma Tire Corp.’s new dealer sales data reporting requirements

The company says its Yokohama Interface provides ADVANTAGE Designated Distributors with a streamlined process to automatically load sales data daily, by part number, validating proof of qualified purchases by Yokohama ADVANTAGE associate dealers, in compliance with the recently re-launched Yokohama ADVANTAGE online site. 

The online site dashboard gives associate dealers access to their performance progress, tier-level projections, reward history, co-op claims and other special features.

Deal Tire Group, a leading U.S. multi-brand wholesaler in Medley, Fla., was one of the first sites to implement ASA’s Yokohama Interface.

“Once Yokohama approves the customer, we set them up in our ASA system, and all Yokohama purchases are automatically sent to Yokohama” says Jeff Martino, general manager at Deal Tire. 

“I get an acknowledgement message from Yokohama confirming whether it processed correctly or not.  The fact that it’s automatic and seamless, I don’t have to be pushing buttons to make it work, is a big time-saver. 

"The fact that I no longer have to manually produce reports every month and every quarter for Yokohama is another time-saver.  Plus it prevents errors!  I’m really happy with what ASA did for us.”

ASA is a provider of software systems and services to independent tire dealers and automotive service centers. Headquartered in Merrimack, N.H., ASA is part of the Friedman Corp., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Constellation Software, Inc.
