“We use VAST Enterprise as our Point of Sale software to run the business but rely on Dynamics GP for back-end financial reporting and processing. The integration done by CAL Business Solutions saves our team a tremendous amount of time and manual entry.”
Steve Cohen, Controller
To accommodate their growing business, Modern Tire and Auto Service Center implemented a Point of Sale (POS) system from MAM Software designed for tire dealers and service centers. To eliminate double entry and the inefficiency of having information in two places, the company decided to also replace their existing Peachtree accounting software. The new accounting software needed to integrate with the POS system and be easy to use and maintain yet robust enough to provide detailed financial reporting.
Modern Tire chose Microsoft Dynamics GP. After an unsuccessful start with another Dynamics GP partner, Modern Tire turned to CAL Business Solutions. Because of their partnership with MAM software, and experience working with other tire retailers, CAL Business Solutions was able to integrate the back office and front office applications successfully.
“Powerful Without Being Overkill”
As a CPA, Steve Cohen, Controller at Modern Tire, has been exposed to a variety of different accounting software packages with companies both small and large. Steve comments, “Dynamics GP has the functionality of very sophisticated software but is really user friendly. For a small company like us it is powerful without being overkill.
We use VAST Enterprise as our Point of Sale software to run the business but rely on Dynamics GP for the back-end financial reporting and processing part of our business. The integration done by CAL Business Solutions saves our team a tremendous amount of time and manual entry.”
“We Rarely Need Support”
CAL Business Solutions was able to troubleshoot and correct problems with the initial implementation and integration so that the accounting system now runs smoothly behind the scenes. “Dynamics GP is stable so we rarely need support. We know we can call CAL Business Solutions for assistance or advice, but we are not dependent on them, which is important for a small company.” says Steve.
“They Proposed A Budget and Stuck To It”
Modern Tire knows that choosing the right software provider is just as important as choosing the right software. Robert Amenta, President of Modern Enterprises, Inc. says: “Over the years I have had dealings with numerous software companies. In almost all cases, there was something lacking in terms of satisfaction with the services, cost, or just plain know how, until we started working with CAL Business Solutions. They took our existing system and made it work. They proposed a budgeted amount for our project and stuck to it.”
“CAL Restored My Confidence in Software Providers”
Robert continues: “I must say that CAL Business Solutions has restored my confidence in software providers. They know the product, don’t waste time, and don’t bill me unnecessarily. As a business owner, that matters. CAL does business the way we do business – stand behind the product and the work and make the customer happy.”
Modern Tire now has the best of both worlds, a POS system designed specifically for their tire and auto service business, connected to a strong, stable core financial system that is easy to use and maintain, supported by industry experts they can trust.
