Dealerships adopt OpenWebs business-to-business software
Englewood Tire Distributors of Lyndhurst, N.J., and Ziegler Tire & Oil Co. of Canton, Ohio, have implemented OpenWebs Corp.'s tradingNetwork point-of-sale, accounting and Internet exchange software at their shops.
"Not only will these dealers use tradingNetwork to their own advantage but we will benefit from their insight as we continue to enhance the product," says Rick Teague, OpenWebs' chief marketing officer.
Cleveland, Ohio-based Mueller Tire & Brake Inc. was the first tire retailer to use the program last November.
OpenWebs officials say tradingNetwork lets dealers, wholesalers, manufacturers and suppliers conduct business directly with each other over the computer "according to each participant's own personal, private business rules."
