Dealer Goes to the ‘Cloud’ for New POS System

Andreoli & Associates Inc. said it has successfully completed its first major "cloud-based" product installation with Knapquist Tires Plus, a six-location tire dealer in Minnesota.

The new cloud-based HITS point-of-sale software went live on Aug. 1, Andreoli said.

"The ability for a dealership of this size to go live without on-site technical assistance represents a significant change in how software will be implemented going forward," said Mike Andreoli, A&A president. "In addition to substantial savings, multi-location dealerships, which might otherwise be reluctant to change their existing systems, can realize greater ease of implementation and confidence of success."

"Because we opted out of on-site assistance, we placed added emphasis on preparation,” said Gregg Lundquist of Knapquist. “Working with A&A, we jointly developed an implementation plan that included a lot of practice invoicing in a demo version of the software. When launch day arrived, there was little new to discover. To coin a phrase, ‘we made the switch without a hitch.’”
