TCS ADDS CARFAX QUICKVIN TO TIRE POWER

October 28th, 2010

COOKEVILLE, Tn. (October 28, 2010) – TCS, software and technology provider for the tire and automotive industry, has upgraded its Tire Power and Tire Core point of sale systems to include Carfax QuickVIN. Users now can retrieve the year/make/model and vehicle identification number (VIN) of their customers’ cars by entering only the license plate information. The new QuickVIN tool is available to all current customers within the latest versions of the software.

“What a luxury to quickly get all the specific vehicle data with only a license plate number,” says Jamie Schwoerer of Don Owen Tire Service Inc. in Illinois.  “We don’t need expensive scanners or have to take additional time running back and forth to cars to get the data.  Tire Power with Carfax QuickVIN reduces the time it takes for us to build a work order and gets our customers out the door quicker. It also reduces the troublesome task of managing parts returns due to incorrect ordering, saving us tons ...[more]

Thinking about investing in a website?

October 28th, 2010

Not sure if you should invest in a website? Maybe I can help you make up your mind.  In today’s society with technology growing so fast, the internet is always at the tip of your fingers. From computers to cell phones to online gaming systems you can jump right on the world-wide-web and search for almost anything at any time. I might be repeating myself, but I did say the world-wide-web right?

With millions of people shopping for tires, rims, or services every day, the first place they will start is on the internet.  That’s a big deal because if they can’t find you on the web then who knows if they will find you at all.  I know you might be thinking, “Hey I don’t have a website and people still walk through my door.”  This is true, but think about how many of those people don’t walk through your door.  So whose door are those people walking through?  Your competitors!

A website lets you have a cutting edge above the rest.  It allows your customers ...[more]

Are you really looking under the hood…

October 18th, 2010

This month TCS supports all of our customers and partners in the tire and automotive industry in celebrating National Car Care Month. What better time to have your vehicle serviced than now. Better yet what you are you doing to ensure your customer’s vehicles are being serviced correctly?

October is a great time to take care of any overdue maintenance or just get your car ready for the winter ahead.  CarCare.org reports that between 2007 and 2009, 80% of vehicles on the road failed at least one component of a standard vehicle inspection. That means 8 out of 10 cars rolling into your shop have some repair work that needs to be performed. Provide your customer a service and do those vehicle inspections with every vehicle in your shop. Do it because you care for them and their safety. Do it because you want the vehicle to last longer for your customer and great things will follow.

First Impressions Are Lasting Impressions (Volume VII)

YOUR WEBSITE

Your website can reveal volumes of material to your customers and potential customers.  Its content could distribute information on a multitude of topics.  Therefore, the data and its format should be user-friendly, easy to navigate, informative, and satisfy the user’s curiosity.

It’s extremely important that your website represents your business in a professional manner, and sets you above your competitors.  Whether your site contains such things as blogs, testimonials, product descriptions, pricing, or pictures, the presentations should be personally appealing, and adequately answer any questions the inquirer may have.

If your website meets the previous criteria, you are in a favorable position, and have opened the door to further customer development. Having done their ‘homework’, the viewer can now act on the knowledge they have at their disposal.  Logically, they will probably follow-up with a phone call or personal ...[more]

(Cookeville, TN, 06-Oct-10) Today Dealer Payment Solutions (DPS) officially launched its premier website, www.dealerpaymentsolutions.com, signaling a new era of payment solutions specifically geared to the Tire and Automotive Industry.
