MUSCATINE, Iowa (Dec. 6, 2005) — Bandag Inc. has selected software vendors MaddenCo Inc. and ASA Tire Systems for premium-level status.
The tire retread materials and equipment supplier said the designation is based on vendors' products that have demonstrated robust integration with Bandag's BASys point-of-sale program.
The company said it created a program for POS software vendors to interface their products with its BASys Manufacturing and Data Channel products. BASys Manufacturing allows commercial tire dealers to track retread inventory and materials usage, as well as create billing and management reports. Data Channel is a system for transferring information between dealers and Bandag.
“The close technical collaboration between our companies means that Bandag dealers should experience a seamless interface between these vendors' accounting software and our BASys Manufacturing system,” says Dennis Hall, product manager, Bandag franchise I.T. systems. “Because they attained this level in our vendor program, we are pleased to add them to the capabilities that Bandag dealers can fund through our PowerPlus and ePower funding programs. They will also display their product at the 2006 Bandag Dealer Alliance Conference.”
