HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. — Cloud-based tire and auto service industry software provider Andreoli & Associates Inc. has released an integration with Automated Media Inc.'s AutoMed5 system.
According to Andreoli & Associates, the integration provides "real-time" inventory lookup and tire ordering to tire suppliers directly from Ford, Chrysler and General Motors car dealerships' systems.
Orders initiated by car dealerships are generated automatically in the Andreoli billing system, allocating inventory and alerting the wholesaler of a new order. The integration also supports automated inventory replacement for car dealerships that maintain minimum stocking levels in their systems.
Mike Andreoli, president of Andreoli Software, said as the tire supply chain evolves, "our clients are well positioned to provide the JIT (just-in-time) and 'hot shot' delivery services demanded by car dealerships that the Tier 1 channel is less favorably equipped to serve."
Mr. Andreoli said his company is looking to enhance the relationship between tire manufacturers and the regional wholesalers "in order to better facilitate servicing this growing (car dealerships) retail channel."
He said his company will be adding additional enhancements in 2019 to enable "clients to leverage their delivery capabilities and channel position."
