Meineke franchisee gets VAST: software aids growth

Rick Urso, owner of Meineke Car Care Centers in Oak Lawn and Westchester, Ill., has detailed how Aftersoft Network N.A.’s VAST system has helped the growth of his business over the last 20 years, and adapted to the changing requirements this brought.

"VAST is a powerful software program that allows a business owner to take control of their business" said Urso. "This is especially true in key areas like pricing, inventory control, employee compensation, and sales trends. The ability to run reports and view our KPIs makes VAST a perfect choice for us."

Urso said he admires the software's ability to run ad-hoc reports which gives businesses the opportunity to “examine, change, and implement strategies before there is a problem."

VAST says its comprehensive inventory controls allow tire dealers and auto service shops to keep a close eye on their stock, enabling Urso and his team to ensure that their inventory dollars are invested wisely.

Looking to the future, Urso predicts that VAST will be as important to his business as ever in a changing marketplace.

"Meineke is growing and our dealers are changing,” said Urso. “More and more are offering general repair services, and many are entering the tire sector. These dealers need the security of knowing their software can handle a variety of business models with accuracy and ease. The fact that VAST has options for all areas in the automotive repair industry is a huge plus."
