Aftersoft Network N.A. is introducing a new smartphone app, along with the release of the newest versions of its VAST Enterprise software, at the 2011 SEMA Show/Global Tire Expo.
Compatible with both Apple iOS and Android devices, the smartphone app complements and extends the functionality of VAST Enterprise software, the company said. With real time reporting of sales information for every location within an enterprise, management can be connected to business wherever they are. The sales of multiple stores can be reported in a single view, allowing users to filter specific locations and identify sales by class, and view reports of a parts/labor breakdown. The app also allows the reporting of sales by the salesperson.
Aftersoft’s new VAST Enterprise software, Retail v7.4.95 and Multi-Store v3.4.16, include a number of new features designed to further increase user productivity, including: Carquest WebLink and Autozone’s eCatalog integration; Quotes delivered over the phone can now be easily e-mailed or faxed directly to the customer; enhancements to the graphical user interface allow the screen to be correctly sized to any monitor; tire inflation and torque figures can now be added to work orders and invoices; and a new option has been added to the Multi-Store server application, enabling real time inventory transfer between two branches.
“Our new app for smart phones and tablets will allow managers to feel more connected to their business, and avoid the need for them to be ‘out of the loop’ due to time constraints,” said John Fischer, president of sales and marketing at Aftersoft N.A. “The upgrades to our VAST Enterprise solutions are the latest in a long line of enhancements, and perfectly demonstrate our commitment to improving user productivity.”
