MILWAUKEE — Tire and wheel software provider TCS Technologies has begun integrating Tiremetrix L.L.C.'s Tire Registration Plus into its Tire Power and TireWorks HD software interfaces.
TCS, an ARI Network Services Inc. company, said the integration will help dealers send more accurate records to tire manufacturers with Department of Transportation (DOT) number validation, helping to eliminate the chance of servicing an aged or recalled tire.
In the event of a recall, dealers can identify affected customers, retrieve registration records and get vital information directly from National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), TCS said.
Tire Power and TireWorks HD are tailored specifically to the tire and automotive repair dealer, TCS and Tiremetrix said. Each software product features a robust interface designed to save time and improve a dealer's day-to-day operations, they said.
Mark Davis, director and general manager, software products for Milwakee-based ARI Network Services, said Tiremetrix is changing how auto repair shops interact with clients, "especially when it comes to DOT registration."
