Exmouth-based Adam Brice Tyres, which specialises in mobile tyre fitting services for car, truck, agriculture, earthmover and plant, has gone ‘live’ with e-jobsheet standalone to digitise its business, speeding up work-to-billing processes.
Digitisation has been an extremely important trend in 2020, to say the least. Due to the restrictions implemented by global governments to combat the spread of Covid-19, the use of technology to perform all sorts of basic business functions has never been as widespread in its usage. While tyre fitting businesses have been spared enforced closure with their rightful designation as an essential service, the implementation of solid digital systems to assist operational and marketing functions has been vital – more so than ever before. Tyres & Accessories used one digital system with which many are now intimately acquainted – Microsoft Teams – to speak to the commercial director of tyre business software systems provider CAM, Steve Daly, about how the company has supported this increased digitisation, as well as the general growth in companies employing CAM’s solutions, such as e-jobsheet and Fitter-Force. This interview is also available as a video to subscribers below.
A major supplier of tyre management systems into Spain is integrating e-jobsheet, the open-access, digital tablet-based service work platform for truck, bus and van, into its software. NETIXCloud’s partnership with CAM will enable its Spanish dealer customers to update stock efficiently in their dealer systems while simultaneously updating data in Fleetbridge if they are carrying out work for Bridgestone.
The integration of CAM’s e-jobsheet into Bridgestone Europe’s FleetBridge system has gone live this week. The systems provider states that the integration will enable the open-access, digital tablet-based service work exchange platform for truck, bus, van, and now also car, to deliver greater shared accuracy between e-jobsheet dealer subscribers and Bridgestone Europe.
The industrialisation of big data has been progressing quickly in recent years within the automotive segment. TPMS sensor technology and the networks they feed data into have enabled increasingly sophisticated software systems to be created to use the massive amount of data we are now able to collect more effectively. Such systems are also able to increase the business applications of another technology, radio-frequency identification, or RFID, helping commercial tyre distribution chains to increase cost, time, and safety efficiency as well as accuracy in their collection of data. Steve Daly, commercial director of CAM, the provider of e-jobsheet, TiDaeX, and the Online Tyre Catalogue, told Tyres & Accessories about the opportunities RFID is now unlocking, and how future, more affordable reading technology could increase the reach of these gains.
CAM International has marked a new milestone for its open-access, digital tablet-based service work platform for truck, bus and van, e-jobsheet, as 1,000 integrated and standalone subscribers are now linked to the TiDaeX online hub.
Morecambe-based TRS Tyres is to become a UniSerV user and a subscriber to e-jobsheet, the open-access, digital tablet-based service work platform for truck, bus and van, to enhance its commercial tyre service operations. The agreement means that the operator will be able to introduce time savings and efficiencies into its business to reduce costs as well as improve service agility and operational visibility.
Bournemouth’s Asset Systems has become the first independent software vendor (ISV) to sign up to CAM’s TiDaeXTM platform. The company said the move would help its commercial service customers enjoy the benefits of integration into an emerging number of third party systems in the truck, bus and van tyre service domain.
CAM’s digital tablet-based work exchange for truck, bus and van, e-jobsheet is to be implemented by key dealers outside the UK following the success of a three-month European tour visiting Sweden, Denmark, Norway, France, Germany, Spain, Italy and the Republic of Ireland.
Fleet maintenance and breakdown specialist Tyrenet is the first dealer network to implement CAM’s UniSerV V7.2 platform. The platform will connect Tyrenet to other UniSerV users that are fully integrated with e-jobsheet as well as standalone e-jobsheet subscribers via the TiDaeX online hub.
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.
The new Tyre Intelligence Europe data platform is developing quickly, with 132 UK tyre sales locations incorporated by mid-February. Data is structured to distinguish clearly between consumer, van and 4×4 – delineating between retail and wholesale sources – an approach that also applies to truck and bus tyre sales.
Independent tyre industry specialist Kevin Glynn has been appointed consultant to the new Tyre Intelligence Europe data service. The platform is designed to deliver robust, speedy and insightful tyre sales data and reports for mainland UK and Northern Ireland “sharer” dealers and subscribers.
Tyre fleet management specialist, Tyre Business Solutions (TBS) has signed up to e-jobsheet, the open-access, digital tablet-based service work platform for truck, bus and van. The agreement means that TBS’ 900 plus dealer network should benefit from the integration of TBS’ management systems and its constituent dealers utilising the e-jobsheet app technology. TBS said it would also consider facilitating its car fleet operations through the platform.
TyreWORK has become the first commercial vehicle and tyre management service provider to go live with the new UniSerV platform from CAM. Extended with e-jobsheet, CAM says the platform features improved “operational agility”, and increased “administrative efficiency in data processing from the field.”
