MERRIMACK, N.H. (Nov. 15, 2010) — ASA Tire Systems has named Saint John, New Brunswick-based Coast Tire & Auto Service Ltd. its 2010 Dealer of the Year.
Ron Outerbridge, president and CEO of Coast Tire, accepted the award at ASA's recent annual InfoExpo user conference. The purpose of the award, ASA said, is to give special recognition to a customer that has been a strong partner by “embracing technology and innovation and assisting ASA in driving the development of its software solutions forward.”
“(Coast Tire was) one of the first dealers to implement ASA's Business Intelligence solution and use handheld devices to manage inventory with barcoding ability,” said Dean Rasco, ASA's eastern regional sales director. “They also implemented the Goodyear interface in Canada, and now they're using (ASA's) TreadX (software) to improve point-of-sale operations.”
Coast Tire operates more than 25 locations in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, and it is the only ISO-certified tire dealer in the region, ASA Tire said.
