TCS Signs as First Subscription to TIA’s TPMS Database

Friday, November 18th, 2011

Bowie, MD– The Tire Industry Association (TIA) announced today that TCS Technologies has signed the first subscription to the Association’s newly created TPMS Database. The Database incorporates all of the information in TIA’s highly successful TPMS Relearn Chart into a file that can be linked with point-of-sale (POS) software so the TPMS requirements for each specific make and model can be printed directly on the work order.

“The TPMS Database was created to give retailers another option for handling the TPMS relearn and service requirements for domestic and import vehicles,” said Kevin Rohlwing, TIA Senior Vice President of Training. “By creating a data file of the TPMS Relearn Chart, we are now able to provide this valuable information in multiple formats so we can meet the needs of any size retailer. TCS was the first software provider to approach us after the release during the Global Tire Expo (GTE) and we are proud to announce that they are the first company to recognize the value of this product.”

“We are excited to be the first company to offer TIA’s TPMS Database, remarked Barry Reese, TCS President. Our POS software applications already provide retailers with tire reference information and technical data specs, so TIA’s TPMS information was a natural extension of these features. The partnership with TIA allows our customers to access the TPMS relearn and service requirements for the most popular domestic and import vehicles by simply entering the year, make and model.”
