HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (Aug. 13, 2013) — Point-of-sale systems provider Andreoli & Associates Inc. (A&A) has added two enhancements to its cloud-based HITS BPOS software designed to improve tire registration procedures.
Andreoli said the two features — which prompt counter personnel to check for correct Department of Transportation (DOT) tire plant identification information — are:
• DOT Number Warning on Invoice Completion: When this feature is activated and the invoice does not contain DOT numbers, the salesperson can either be warned or blocked from closing the ticket.
• Missing DOT Number Report: To complement the new warning option, this report lists invoices with missing DOT numbers, including the salesperson who closed the ticket.
"Many of our tire dealership owners have expressed their desire to offer customers the added service of registering their tires with the federal government," said A&A President Mike Andreoli.
He said he heard that dealers were "concerned" that their staff would not always capture DOT numbers on customer invoices, but this enhancement eliminates "the excuse that the counter person forgot to check."
"Our 'hands-free' reporting integration with CIMS Tire Registration makes it effortless for a dealer to provide this valuable service to their customers," he added.
Angela Trayer, vice president information technology for Akron-based CIMS, confirmed the value of the integration, saying "dealers have more than enough administrative tasks on their plates. Andreoli's integration helps tire dealers comply with the law of registering tires and completely eliminates the manual reporting process."
