KCS to present at Car-X Dealer Meeting 2020

VAST is a sophisticated point of sale and management system designed for both single and multi-location tire dealers and auto service shops. It’s powerful yet easy-to-use features help to increase revenues and generate incremental profits, while enhancing customer service and productivity.

VAST Online is the browser-based version of VAST and is built with a modern user interface which maintains a familiar workflow that users are comfortable with and will run smoothly on a desktop or tablet. As a cloud hosted solution, software updates and back-ups happen automatically and seamlessly in a secure data center. With its seamless connectivity to KCS' e-commerce solution, shops can instantly see part and tire availability at participating suppliers, and place hot-shot orders from directly within a work order.

We will also be showcasing our parts catalog and connectivity solution for tire and auto service dealers, VAST Commerce at this year’s show. Built on KCS' OpenWebs e-commerce and Autocat catalog platforms, the VAST Commerce’s open architecture provides users with a single solution for all their connectivity requirements.

In addition to the latest catalog integration option, KCS will be showing how our solutions work with the CarSide (digital vehicle inspection) integration. CarSide enables shops to send customers a digital report of recommended repairs directly to their smartphone including pictures and videos. It shows them exactly what the technician sees, allowing them to make an informed decision before approving needed repairs.

“Once again we are pleased to be included in the Car-X Dealer Meeting and we are looking forward to showcasing the power of VAST and VAST Online.” John Fischer, VP of Sales & Marketing - KCS.
