Aftersoft Network N.A. has announced that Free Service Tire Co., a chain of retail tire and automotive service centers headquartered in Tennessee has chosen VAST to manage its business operations.

Free Service Tire Company Inc. operates 17 locations between Knoxville and Roanoke, Va. A family-owned business founded in 1919, the company provides services including retail tire and automotive work, controlled distribution, commercial vehicle tire and service work, and medium truck and OTR retreading.

"We evaluated a number of alternatives for our software solutions provider," says Matthew Wilhjelm, VP of finance at Free Service Tire Co. "Ultimately however, Aftersoft met what we were looking for in a partner. The increased speed and efficiency that VAST offers at POS are important to us, as is the greater access to information relating to our business and the visibility this provides.”

Wilhjelm says the VAST integrated parts catalog will help increase his company’s margins.

"The range of stores which Free Service operates perfectly highlights how versatile our VAST Enterprise software is, able to manage each store individually and connect them all to the same business network,” says John Fischer, vice president of sales and marketing at Aftersoft.

Aftersoft Network N.A. provides point-of-sale, inventory control, accounting and eCommerce software to retail, wholesale, commercial and retread tire dealers, and automotive service centers. For more information visit
