3 industry leaders swear by TPMS Manager
Cloud-based point-of-sale developer Andreoli & Associates Inc. (A&A) has integrated its HITS BPOS software with Tiremetrix LLC's TPMS Manager Powered by TIA.
Subscribers of TPMS Manager who use A&A's point-of-sale software now have one-click access to tire pressure monitoring system information.
Tiremetrix, the developer of TMPS Manager, has created an exclusive "try before you buy" program for A&A BPOS customers. The program provides the complete TPMS Manager Powered by TIA (Tire Industry Association), including TIA’s:
* TPMS shop training,
* “tech tips," and
* video relearn procedures.
"We are pleased to have Andreoli on-board as an early adopter of our software,” says Joe Donehue, president of Tiremetrix. “By having critical information directly available at the point of sale, we feel it’s a perfect fit for tire repair shops to get the information they need instantly.”
“Tiremetrix's easy-to-use interface, rich content, and integration of TIA's award winning training materials empowers progressive dealers with the tools needed by their staff to ensure proper servicing of TPMS based vehicles, adds Mike Andreoli, president of A&A.
The integration includes "TPMS Quick Check," which advises service writers and technicians if a vehicle is equipped with a TPMS system. The quick check function uses the VIN number or YMM of the current vehicle being accessed in the POS.
Alternately, A&A BPOS users who are signed up for CarFax’s QuickVIN can enter a license plate, obtain the VIN number or YMM, and perform the "TPMS Quick Check" in seconds.
Terry Swisher of Peoria Plaza Tire, Peoria, Ill., a client of both Tiremetrix and Andreoli, assisted with the integration testing. He says he uses TPMS Manager every day.
"Having it integrated with our Andreoli point-of-sale enables us to serve our customers faster since vehicle information is automatically passed to TPMS Manager.”
Donehue says other integrations are in the works. The company's goal is "to make TPMS Manager as common place in tire point-of-sale systems as is tire fitment software."
Roy Littlefield, executive vice president of TIA, says the association’s involvement with Tiremetrix is a matter of service to the industry and public safety.
"Proper training of tire industry related procedures is a core function of TIA. Working with Tiremetrix, we can further fulfill our commitment to the industry's educational needs, enhance and increase benefits and services for our members, and contribute to overall motoring safety.”
