BLUE BELL, Pa. — The number of tire dealership locations using MAM Software Inc.'s VAST Enterprise Retail point-of-sale and management system grew by 156 locations in the U.S. in the past 18 months, the company said recently.
MAM Software attributes the growth to the continued evolution of the VAST product — which is designed for both single and multi-location tire dealers and auto service shops — wth new features and improved functionality.
The 156 locations are operated by 46 dealerships, MAM said.
Among features added recently are:
- Commerce integration: Built on MAM Software's OpenWebs e-commerce and Autocat catalog platforms, MAM Commerce said the software enables businesses to collaborate and transact online with reduced costs and greater efficiency;
- CarSide Integration: Enhancements have been made to the digital inspection application, MAM CarSide, that include two-way workflow process efficiencies and a new two-way texting feature to communicate with customers through the inspection and work-order process;
- Shared inventory: VAST offers the ability to share the warehouse inventory in all of the locations for retail and commercial locations located within the same facility; and
- BAYiQ Integration: VAST supports two-way integration with BAYiQ's API for customer loyalty programs.
