TCS adds Carfax QuickVIN to Tire Power
Tire Company Solutions (TCS) has upgraded its Tire Power and Tire Core point of sale systems to include Carfax QuickVIN.
Users now can pull up the year/make/model and vehicle identifcation number (VIN) of their customers' vehicles by entering license plate information.
"We don't need expensive scanners or have to take additional time running back and forth to cars to get data," says Jamie Schwoerer of Don Owen Tire Service Inc. in Illinois.
"TirePower with Carfax QuickVIN reduces the time it takes for us to build a work order and gets our customers out the door quicker. It also reduces the troublesome task of managing parts returns due to incorrect ordering, saving us tons of office time, as well."
TCS is one of the first providers to include Carfax QuickVIN in its software. TCS President Barry Reese says the intergration "is another powerful tool TCS is providing its software users to help them grow and succeed through their technology. Speed, efficiency and superior customer service are vital to maintaining and growing your tire and auto service centers in today's market, and QuickVIN delivers on all of these."
Tire Power subscribers using Carfax QuickVIN also "have their service records turned into free advertising on Carfax Vehicle History Reports," note Carfax officials. "Shop name and contact information appear alongside each service record on the Carfax Report."
TCS will demonstrate Tire Power with Carfax QuickVIN at next week's Global Tire Expo-Specialty Equipment Market Association Show in Las Vegas, Nev. TCS' booth number is 42167.
