ASA announces TireMaster improvements

Posted on July 3, 2014

ASA Automotive Systems announced the latest release of estimating and sales software from Epicor Software Corp. is available to users of its TireMaster software.

ASA says the Web-based Epicor ISE software gives users of its TireMaster software enhanced capabilities to increase vehicle parts and service revenue and gross margin.

According to ASA, the Epicor ISE software enables users to quickly capture all of the parts and labor information needed to estimate and complete virtually any common automotive repair. The software provides one-click access to the Epicor PartExpert database of more than 10 million parts, 7,800 manufacturer product lines and 27 million interchanges.

The Epicor software also provides access to OE-recommended service intervals, an aftermarket flat-rate labor guide, repair jobs database, parts interchange, and VIN decoder, according to ASA. Additionally, users can quickly access parts availability and pricing information from local providers. All parts, labor and supplier pricing information is then automatically uploaded to estimates, work orders and invoices generated by ASA system users.

“ASA customers are finding increased success identifying and closing profitable service opportunities using Epicor ISE,” says Dave Vogel, vice president of sales for ASA Automotive Systems.

"Epicor ISE helps our customers to drive revenue, efficiency and customer satisfaction at their service counters by streamlining and automating the entire process to make their service writers more productive and eliminating errors."

In addition to improved navigation, the Epicor ISE features for TireMaster software users include:

* Custom or non-catalog parts pricing that calculates the selling price for custom parts with the same calculation used for catalog parts; and

* Supplier + Tab,  a feature that allows vendors with online shop/tool supply catalogs to provide Epicor ISE users access to these products in addition to the standard parts catalogs.

“Tire dealers who integrate Epicor ISE into their TireMaster software have the ability to more efficiently and profitably expand into dozens of additional service categories,” says Scott Thompson, vice president, automotive, retail distribution solutions for Epicor.
