(Cookeville, TN, 18 August 2009)  Tire wholesalers report sales and revenues are up in spite of the economic downturn, thanks to TCS’ ePower software and related products.

TCS’ ePower is a fully-integrated, real-time ecommerce system for wholesale businesses.  ePower empowers wholesalers to increased orders and streamlined business operations with many powerful features.  The newest features include the easiest-to-use single-point search and search analysis in the industry, a product compare and selling price feature, quick order feature, and real time order processing. “The response to ePower has been fantastic.  Users are both increasing sales while cutting back on overhead.  Retailers know what they want to order and are looking for the fastest most efficient means of doing so.  We are thrilled to not only meet this need but exceed the expectations of both our users and their customers,” stated Shawn Puckett, Director of Business Development.  With installations from New York to California, Texas to Canada, ePower clients enjoy a strong market penetration throughout the North American continent.

123 Wholesale Tire of Georgia recently migrated to the ePower system and immediately saw results.  Manager Randy Church stated “Online sales have increased over 20% from our previous ecommerce website! Customers love the fast and easy navigation and great features; they just buy more inventory from us now than our online competitors.”  David Priddy of David’s Discount Tire also reports good fortunes linked to ePower:  “The ePower online system is 10 times better than my previous one!  TCS helped me educate my employees and my buyers so my customers use my site FIRST!  It has been huge for my business growth by not only promoting sales growth but it frees up my employees from taking orders over the phone!”  These results are typical for ePower users:  A wholesaler in Texas reports a 17% increase in revenue from the customers they put on ePower in just 2 months, while another in Oklahoma reported a whopping 42% increase in the same time period.

TCS’ ePower is a significant piece of the comprehensive products and services the company offers to drive success for their clients.  Along with state-of-the-art web design, TCS provides strategic tools for increasing sales and market presence which are an integral part of operating a successful business in today’s soft markets.  The speed at which new TCS customers are able to get up, running and enjoying increased business results with the ePower system is one of the product’s most desirable attributes.
