(Cookeville, TN, July, 6 2010) TCS has expanded operations once again with new positions and hires in their continued commitment to top-notch service as a leading provider of technology to the Tire and Automotive Services Industry.

(Cookeville, TN, 06-22-10) TCS, a TN based software and web products provider, and Social Butterfly.Pro have initiated a collaborative effort to produce a new brand of Social Media websites for tire dealers. The importance of Social Media for brand recognition and visibility has mushroomed in the past 12 months, and this new cooperative effort is a powerful enhancement to TCS’ burgeoning array of products and services for the Tire and Automotive Services industry.
“We’ve been helping dealers utilize Social Media over the past two years now and it has become obvious to us that the websites in use today fall short in the tools necessary to fully take advantage of their internet presence,” stated Shawn McKenzie, President of Social Butterfly.Pro, a NH based Social Media support site for Tire dealers. “TCS already has a strong web product mix in place, we had the Social Media expertise, it made sense to work together.”

If selling tires is your job, then ‘Tire Estimator’ is the tool for you! ‘Tire Estimator’ was developed to allow the user to quickly scroll through data and check package pricing for tires without having to jump in and out of a quote for each price.
In Tire Power’s Front Counter, go to ‘Search Inventory’ and search for a tire. Then on the toolbar click the ‘Tire Estimator’ button and you will see the total “4 and out-the-door” package price for the tires. From inside ‘Tire Estimator’ you can also change the quantity, price class, tax group and included package to alter the price. So at this point you are thinking “ok this is nice”, but wait there is more! This window is designed like a toolbar, so you have the ability to go back to the search window in the background and select another tire without closing the ‘Tire Estimator’ window. This is a big time saver! Just move the ‘Tire Estimator’ window off to the side and continue searchin ...[more]
