(Cookeville, TN July 28, 2009) Tire Company Solutions, software provider for the tire and automotive industries, announced today their acquisition of Utah-based ThirstyPixel (www.thirstypixel.com), an enterprise-level web development company.
“Dynamic internet technologies is an integral part of a successful tire and automotive services business,” explained TCS owner Barry Reese. “Expanding our technology footprint by bringing on a team of seasoned web developers gives us and our users a great competitive edge and greatly enhances the products and services we can provide to our customers.”
In addition to web site development, experts at ThirstyPixel have also successfully completed other large-scale custom projects in the spectrum of computer and internet technologies including portable OS (Operating Systems), ACH (Automated Clearing House), custom eCommerce systems, automated Loan Decisioning systems, and Flash-based dynamic data collection & processing.
Moving under the tire and automotive services umbrella is a perfect fit for the ThirstyPixel team, as they have over 10 years extensive experience in automotive markets with significant cross-over applications including vehicle sales & marketing, shipping, trucking and LTL (less-than-load) applications. ThirstyPixel has launched several enterprise level web applications whose short list of features include; Inventory Control, ACH and Internet Marketing Management. At the time of the acquisition, ThirstyPixel and TCS are in the final stretch of developing a paradigm-shifting complete software system that will change the roadmap of the Tire and Automotive industry.
“We are excited to be able to assist TCS’ customers in enhancing their sales revenues in exciting new ways, including ways the customer might not have realized were possible,” said Kenny Pratt, President of ThirstyPixel. “Becoming a part of TCS is a great opportunity and prepares us to achieve our long-term goals” he went on to say.
The new super-charged TCS has already begun the roll-out of new custom technologies possible with this merger with over 20 customers on-board in the first few weeks.
