Sigmavision has announced its plans to launch TreadManager, a new cloud-based tyre sales management service developed for the tyre aftermarket. The company states that TreadManager will help tyre providers to increase sales revenue and boost turnover from tyre-related services. Registered users will be provided with tyre measurement data and management information for all vehicles scanned using TreadReader tyre measurement devices. The full range of TreadReader products, including the Hand Held scanner and all specifications of the Drive Over ramp, whether flush-fit or surface-mounted, will be compatible with TreadManager.
Sigmavision has appointed Chris Coyle as sales director joining the Sigmavision board.
Previously sales director at Pro-Align Ltd, the UK distributor for Hunter Engineering, Chris Coyle was central to Pro-Align’s significant growth, with responsibility for the sales of Hunter Quick Tread drive over ramps, featuring Sigmavision’s TreadReader technology.
While the financial context of the last five years has undoubtedly provided a challenging market environment for many players in the tyre industry, the premium garage equipment sector has seen opportunity. As tyre retailers have broadly seen margins squeezed further as consumers look to save on tyres, so has the importance of maximising ancillary services grown. On the occasion of the launch of another trail-blazing addition to its range with the Revolution tyre changer, Hunter garage machinery supplier to the UK Pro-Align took the opportunity to show Tyrepress the effects of providing innovative services to the sector.
