Kerridge Commercial Systems Upgrades to Vast Online

Nov. 1, 2023

Kerridge Commercial Systems (KCS) updated its point of sales system with its VAST Online cloud solution.

The system is an update from the company’s VAST point-of-sales system – the updated version puts all data in the cloud. 

The new system was showcased at the 2023 Specialty Equipment Market Association Show. 

According to John Fischer, vice president of sales and marketing for KCS, the VAST program was completely rewritten to make it into a true cloud solution.

The customizable tire selling window can capture customer signatures and provide service providers with the correct information on different tire benefits, speed ratings, pricing, warranty and more.

“Right now, 3,000 stores use our window-based system, the VAST program, and our goal is to move all those stores to our VAST Online cloud solution,” says Fischer.

The system also has license plate to VIN identification that allows technicians to access part images, vehicle specifications and installation information.

It also has a real-time view of multi-location inventory to give tire dealers full visibility of inventory levels at all times.

The cloud-based solution allows the tire dealers and their teams to stay connected without costly servers of infrastructure.
