ASA Automotive Systems Inc. used the 2018 SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) Show to celebrate its 30th birthday and last year’s launch of its TireMaster GTX software. It also took the opportunity to tease tire dealers about its next product.
TireMaster GTX software was designed to give tire and auto service centers real-time visibility into how the company is doing as a whole. Although it can be used by any size dealership, its many features make it particularly useful for larger, multi-purpose dealers.
That was how ASA described it at the 2017 SEMA Show.
“So here we are a year later and we’ve got over 125 locations live on it,” said Executive Vice President Dave Vogel. “And more (are) in the works that are not live yet.”
ASA’s latest software project for tire dealers is “something entirely new,” said President Marc Belanski. The company expects to announce what it is and when it will be available in the first quarter of 2019.
Earlier this year, ASA Automotive Systems Inc. and its parent company, Fog Software Group, completed the acquisition of Pace Software Inc.
Pace’s Yes Management software solution is designed to help single and multi-location automotive service and repair centers grow faster by integrating critical workflow functions from counter to repair bay to inventory and back office.
Fog Software Group Vice President of Business Development Eric Herrmann said there will be more “exciting announcements” over the next year.
Fog Software is a division of Constellation Software Inc. The company acquires, manages and builds software companies in a variety of vertical markets, and has 400 companies in its stable.
