TRS Tyres has gone live with CAM software solutions and e-jobsheet. The Lancashire company will use the systems to support its commercial tyre service function, as well as enabling the casing company to control its inbound and outbound stock effectively, with greater visibility of product across its two sites.
CAM has appointed experienced senior manager Rob Harber as chief technology officer. He will oversee the technical direction of the company and manage the reengineering of aspects of its software solutions to anticipate and meet customers’ requirements, spearheaded by Azure Cloud migration, CAM states.
CAM has expanded its management team with the promotion of Frankie Sharp to head of product management. The company states that the new addition to the management team is part of its ongoing commitment to drive innovation in the business to ensure its software solutions continue to meet the industry’s needs.
In fewer than four months, the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will become active, presenting businesses with a number of requirements related to the way they process data. Ahead of the 25 May 2018 deadline, systems provider CAM is introducing a dedicated GDPR online tool created by specialist lawyers to help customers prepare fully for “the seismic changes the legislation will generate.”
CAM has improved its Investors in People (IIP) accreditation, gaining silver following its recent inspection. IIP said the higher classification is based on the company’s commitment to flexible working, leading to excellent customer service and support, clear performance targets aligned with a commensurate reward scheme; its investment in continuous professional development in a complex technical environment; and sustained involvement in corporate social responsibility.
CAM has announced it will sever its ties with the market research company GfK, coinciding with the emergence of the Tyre Intelligence Europe data platform. CAM will relinquish its role in extracting data provided by regional and independent dealers through the agency of its software systems on GfK’s behalf. The service to extract data from customer systems will cease at midnight on 31 March 2017.
CAM has promoted general manager Ryan Naughton to its board of directors. The company said the promotion recognises his contribution to the business over the last three years, specifically around the structuring of a formal people development programme, leading to the prestigious Investors in People (IIP) award in February this year.
CAM has been accredited with Investors in People (IIP) following a recent inspection. The standard recognises high quality customer service and support, high levels of staff retention, and a leading position and high penetration in its target sector.
