TCS TO UNVEIL NEW RETREAD PLANT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

Thursday, September 13th, 2012

TCS Technologies announces its new cloud-based TreadTracks™ retread plant management system will be on display at the upcoming ITEC 2012 Show, September 18-20 in Cleveland, OH. The system, which manages the retread process from the time the tire is picked up through the finished delivery, is an enterprise grade system handling operations from 1 to 100+ locations and gives unprecedented visibility as to how to most efficiently manage your retread plant.

TreadTracks™ uses advanced touchscreen desktop and mobile interfaces to simplify the process for the end user and speed the flow of information throughout the system. By leveraging the interconnected components, managers can see in real-time the productivity of each aspect of their operations at each plant worldwide.

“As TCS has been implementing TreadTracks™  to our beta partners, we have received the most excitement about the instantaneous feedback to everyone from the shop floor to upper management,” said Shawn Puckett, TCS’s Director of Business Development. “This enables companies to solve problems before they occur, make better decisions, and manage their supply chain much quicker and more efficiently than they have ever been able to do.”

TreadTracks™ works with existing hardware and follows industry standard practices and procedures to make moving to the system extremely simple. All customer data is easily accessible so it can integrate with not only TCS’s TirePower™ software, but with most point of sale systems.

TreadTracks™ workstations and mobile interfaces are ruggedized and made for a global workforce. They utilize a unique multilingual interface, allowing workers to operate in the native language, further reducing errors in the production process.

“By leveraging our cloud technology, we take the worries of server management, software upgrades, and patches off of our customer’s minds and allow them to focus on managing their operation,” said Barry Reese, TCS President. “They’ll always have the latest software. The last thing any plant manager wants is for their operations to be stopped while they’re trying to troubleshoot technology problems.”
Management features of the system include but are not limited to Production Scheduling, tracking of Raw Materials, Production and Fleet Reports, RAR tracking, and many more. Users of the system will be allowed to track tires through their retreading facility with bar code scanners, print labels at each checkpoint, and utilize long term tracking with the use of RFID tags.

Scheduled demonstrations will be given of this cutting-edge technology at the TCS booth (BOOTH # 632) during the upcoming ITEC 2012 Show in Cleveland, OH running from September 18-20.

TCS SIGNS UP 12 NEW DEALERS FOR TC-TREAD TRACK RETREADING SOFTWARE, INTEGRATES WITH OTHER POS SYSTEMS

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

(Cookeville, TN, March 1, 2012)  -  TCS Technologies, software and web applications provider for the tire, automotive, and retread industry announces 12 retreading facilities have signed up for its TC-Tread Track retreading software package, among them are the entire AcuTread Alliance Group including Sumerel Tire Service, Wonderland Tire, Central Tire, Day & Night Tire, and Waco Tire.  Other dealers committed include, Quality Tire and Jewell Tire Retreading.  Due to the number of dealers who want to fast track the switch to TCS, and the complexity of a software system changeover, TCS also announces it has built TC-Tread Track to be able to integrate with other POS systems.  This is a huge benefit to those retreaders who need to change retreading software quickly without forcing them to move other parts of their business systems.  The rapid development of this next generation product and the team TCS has assembled to implement the system into current operations has captured the interest of the industry.  Among the items sparking the most interest are new fleet management features and mobile benefits not available to retreaders who work with older technology.

Gary Ingber, original developer of the industry-leading Open Road Technologies (ORT) retread software and current lead consultant of the TC-Tread Track package, stated, “If you want a fresh and current complete system to manage your process with unbelievable power and flexibility, then you need to get on board with this package.  This is not some 1980’s technology resurrected in the hopes of taking advantage of the changes occurring in the retreading industry.  TC-Tread Track will be the benchmark for the next 30 years all others will be compared to.”

“The thing I like about TCS and TC-Tread Track is their ability to work with other legacy systems in order to simplify the implementation process,“ says Tim Loden, owner of Advantage ID and original partner in ORT.  “When you see their complete package, believe me, you will want the whole thing.  But to allow tire dealers to implement in steps is huge, and this really shows how TCS is looking out for the dealer’s best interest.”

Bob Majewski, President of the AcuTread Alliance Group said, “I am energized about TC-Tread Track and what it will do for our business, and the industry as a whole.  It will be great for independent retreaders to finally have reports they can take to the fleets that really show usable information that makes a difference. “
