Andreoli eases DOT compliance reporting
Andreoli & Associates Inc. (A&A) has added two enhancements to its cloud-based HITS BPOS software for better Department of Transportation (DOT) number compliancy.
DOT# Warning on Invoice Completion – Point-of-sale can now be set to check for invoices that include tires subject to DOT number reporting. When this feature is activated and the invoice does not contain DOT numbers, the salesperson can either be warned or blocked from closing the ticket.
Mike Andreoli, president of A&A, says, “Many of our tire dealership owners have expressed their desire to offer customers the added service of registering their tires with the federal government. Yet, they were concerned their staff would not always capture DOT numbers on invoices. This enhancement eliminates the excuse that the counter person forgot to check.”
Missing DOT# Report - To complement the new warning option, A&A added a new report that lists invoices with missing DOT numbers, including the sales person who closed the ticket. Notes Andreoli, “The missing DOT number report provides the necessary documentation to ensure compliance with this vital customer service.”
Andreoli adds, “Our ‘hands-free’ reporting integration with CIMS Tire Registration makes it effortless for a dealer to provide this valuable service to their customers. Our cloud servers gather all the data for those dealers signed up for CIMS automated DOT number registration and forwards it electronically to CIMS."
Angela Trayer, vice president information technology for CIMS, says, “Andreoli’s integration helps tire dealers comply with the law of registering tires and completely eliminates the manual reporting process.” CIMS helps its clients comply with the recordkeeping requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Act (1966) and related National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Tire Registration Regulations (49 CFR Part 574).
