Making the Most of Your Tire Power Software – An Easy Search for the Hard to Find Customer

March 22nd, 2010

As Tire Power users, we all have done it.  We need to enter a customer transaction, only to not be able to find the customer’s name.  We think they are in there, but why can’t we find their name?  Is the name in the database misspelled, an extra space inserted, or does it have an extra letter which is making the search not work correctly?  This can be frustrating and a little embarrassing, especially if the customer is right in front of you.  Over the years I have heard and seen some pretty good tips to help you find that customer, such as using a phone number look up, or first name look up, but one of the most underused and powerful searches you can use to find an elusive customer in your database is the % sign lookup.

Let’s say I am in Front Counter searching for the customer, ‘Weaver Autobody’.  The quickest way to search is to enter in “weav” in the ‘Last Name’ field.  In this case, I do get some results, just not the one I need.  I am fairly cer ...[more]

Don’t delay in fixing errors

March 10th, 2010

Our Tire Power software has tremendous reporting capabilities and hopefully you are taking advantage of those features.  Remember, after running the reports and financial statements, it is very important to examine them for any discrepancies.  If you have any questions about how the numbers are calculated, or think the numbers don’t correlate with some of your other figures, give us a call. If errors were made during the day, week or month, it’s easier to fix them sooner rather than later.  The longer errors go without being addressed, the more potential to cause further and sometimes bigger problems. Remember, your TCS Support Team is here to help!

A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE WHEEL & TIRE

March 9th, 2010
stone-wheelThe First Wheels

The wheel is an icon of invention and civilization. The first known stone wheels came out of ancient Mesopotamia, the region today known as Iraq, around 3500 BC.

These first wheels were used for throwing pottery and agricultural uses such as grinding. It took another 300 years for wheels to be used in transportation.

Use Tire Power Software to See the Big Picture

March 3rd, 2010

Most business owners are great at casting a vision or seeing the big picture. This is a great asset to their company as it gives their employees direction and motivation. So how does Tire Power Software play into the big picture? Or maybe a better question is, how do you get to the big picture? The answer…one report at a time.  Many Tire Power Software customers have yet to realize the full potential of the software. I have talked with several customers recently who have said, the more they use the software, the more they find it will do for them.  They feel it will enable them to be more efficient and improve their bottom line.

So what are these tools inside of Tire Power Software? Let me just cover one for now (only because it is a BIG one). Tire Power has a vast and extensive reporting system. Let’s take the ‘Accounting’ tab for example; there are currently 28 reports on that single tab. Almost all of these reports have filters which allow th ...[more]
