TCS is TIA’s first TPMS Database subscriber

Nov. 17, 2011

TCS Technologies has signed the first subscription to the Tire Industry Association’s (TIA) newly created TPMS Database.

The Database incorporates the information in TIA's TPMS Relearn Chart into a file that can be linked with point-of-sale (POS) software. This enables the TPMS requirements for each specific make and model to be printed directly on the work order.

"The TPMS Database was created to give retailers another option for handling the TPMS relearn and service requirements for domestic and import vehicles," said Kevin Rohlwing, TIA senior vice president of Training. "By creating a data file of the TPMS Relearn Chart, we are now able to provide this valuable information in multiple formats so we can meet the needs of any size retailer.”

Rohlwing said TCS was the first software provider to approach TIA after the release of its TPMS Database during the Global Tire Expo (GTE).

"Our POS software applications already provide retailers with tire reference information and technical data specs, so TIA's TPMS information was a natural extension of these features," said Barry Reese, TCS President. “The partnership with TIA allows our customers to access the TPMS relearn and service requirements for the most popular domestic and import vehicles by simply entering the year, make and model."
