PartsTech Tires Updates:

New Feature: PartsTech Tires Comparison Tool

Earlier this month we launched our new PartsTech Tires Comparison Tool. Now PartsTech Tires comes built-in with a powerful sales tool! We want to make it fast and easy to sell more tires. Now you can quickly create Good/Better/Best tire comparisons for your customers. This new feature is now live as part of our PartsTech Tires subscription. Interested in adding a PartsTech Tires Subscription? Click here to learn more!

Build Your PartsTech Tire Pricing Matrix & Start Building Quotes

To get the most out of this new feature we recommend that PartsTech Tires subscribers take a moment to fill out their pricing matrix and associated fees in the Tire Pricing menu. Your tire pricing matrix and fees should reflect what's already in your shop management system. We have a knowledge base guide here to get you up to speed.

Hide Your Cost and Show Retail Pricing on Tires

Once you've set up your shop's Tire Pricing you can quickly hide your wholesale cost with this new toggle at the top left-hand corner of any Tire search result page. This lets you flip the monitor around and show the customer cost for those tires.

Send Customers a Mobile-Friendly Quote With Out-the-Door Pricing

Once you've built a Good/Better/Best comparison you can Print, Email, or Text the customer a link to a mobile-friendly quote with their out the door cost. When the customer makes a selection, PartsTech will send you an email linking you back to that quote. The customer's selection will be automatically added to the work order in many supported management systems.

We're excited to open this feature up to all of our PartsTech Tires subscribers! We hope this new tool helps you boost tire sales by putting more choices in the palm of your customer's hand.
