Managing Tires in LubeSoft® just got easier

ISI has added new features in LubeSoft Inventory Setup and LubeSoft Invoicing making it easier for you to setup, track and sell tires.

In the LubeSoft 11.14 release we added a new “Sub-type” designation in Inventory Setup for parts that are Tires. The Sub-type T provides the option to store tire specific information including: Tire Brand, Tire Size, Mileage Warranty, Speed Rating and more. Example:  Michelin, 245/75-16, 60,000, S, etc.

Additional features related to searching for and selling tires have been added.  Here are a few examples:

  • New special help screens to search for tire inventory items during invoicing. Search by one or more key pieces of tire information such as Tire Brand, Size, Speed Rating and more. Instantly see which tires you have in stock based on your search options.
  • Added the collection of tire DOT (Department of Transportation) numbers that also print on our Plain Paper Invoice forms.
  • Created an integration with CIMS (Computerized Information Management Systems) to electronically transmit DOT numbers in order to maintain compliance with NHTSA (National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration). Please contact ISI Sales for further information on how to enroll your store.

For more detailed information about these new Inventory Setup and Tire Search features, refer to your LubeSoft 11.14 User Guide at your store or on webCentral.

measures to remove temptation for cutting corners.

Unfortunately, timesheet altering and “theft” is more common than most of us realize. To reduce the
opportunities for employees to do so, we’ve compiled a few ideas to help:
