Michelin's TCi offers mobile ordering app for dealers
Tire Centers LLC (TCi) is the first authorized Michelin tire distributor to offer a mobile app for independent tire dealers to view inventory and purchase tires online.
The new Tire Inventory and Purchasing System (TIPS) app is a mobile version of the company’s TIPS online ordering system.
“Our customers increasingly have a need to conduct business using a mobile device," says Vickie Johnson, director of retail marketing for TCi. "Whether it’s to check product availability, view product information, or purchase tires right from their phones or tablets. Developing a TIPS mobile app was the next logical step for TCi in our digital strategy, and we are thrilled to be one of the first in the market to offer this solution.”
This new app enables dealers to view live inventory, pricing and purchase directly through the app. In addition, dealers can access high-quality images, tire specs and view complete TIPS order history. The app’s quick quote feature enables quick retail price quoting to consumers.
“Dealers love the new convenience and simplicity the app provides,” says Daphne Risco, digital solutions manager for TCi. “This app enables dealers to search inventory and provide technical information, with out-the-door pricing, to their customers, friends and family at any time, day or night.”
The TIPS app is available for download in both the Apple and Android stores.
