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.”

For more information on TIA’s TPMS Database or the TPMS Relearn Chart, contact Chris Marnett, TIA Director of Training at 800-876-8372, ext. 106 or cmarnett@tireindustry.org.

Accountability

Wednesday, November 17th, 2010

Why do we need accountability in life?

What does that look like? It could mean taking responsibility, giving an answer, or an explanation. It is a great way to motivate us. Just knowing I will have to give an answer for my actions, health, work, etc. keeps me on a positive path in life. TCS has a wellness program that keeps us accountable. One TCS employee said, “Just knowing I have to write it down, keeps me motivated to exercise when I don’t feel like it”.  Our health and wellness is something we can impact to a large degree by making good decisions about how we live and what we eat. It is important to eat right, get plenty of sleep, exercise and get the vaccines available to prevent diseases. Many Americans are living unhealthy lifestyles and are not aware of wellness or prevention, which will only result in worse health conditions and higher healthcare costs in the future.  The quality of life and how you feel is in direct proportion to the choices we make in our exercise and diet. Choose a plan or an accountability partner and get involved in a program to improve your wellness.  I challenge you today to take action, accept responsibility and encourage someone today to take the step with you.
