MAM Software integrates Squarerigger audit system with point of sale



MAM Software Inc. and Squarerigger Inc. announced the integration of Squarerigger’s portable Opti-Tread Tire Audit System with MAM Software’s advanced VAST point of sale and business management software for single and multi-location tire and auto service shops.

Opti-Tread is credited, by its users, with significant increases in both tire and alignment revenue and customer satisfaction at both retail tire dealers and auto dealerships.

Opti-Tread’s lightweight portable system allows vehicle tire inspections to be performed in drive-up service lanes, in service bays, out in the parking lot, or wherever the car may be located. In addition to indicating abnormal wear patterns caused by underbody, alignment or inflation issues, Opti-Tread’s patent-pending ability to point out tires with nails introduces a new revenue stream for shops.

“The Opti-Tread integration will offer even more features that help VAST users improve customer satisfaction,” said Lance Brierley, general manager of MAM Software, North America. “We selectively work with partners whose services complement our already comprehensive point of sale software, so we have high confidence in what Opti-Tread will provide to our customers.”

Now that Opti-Tread passes its inspection results directly to the VAST system installed on a tablet, the customer service representative can increase the level of service to his customer while further increasing the ROI on the dealership’s investment in VAST.
