The pairing of TCS Software and the Tech200Pro provides front counter associates the necessary information to be successful.

By providing an unmatched user experience, a flexible framework, and robust tools for operational consistency, TCS helps dealers of all sizes to increase revenue, reduce expenses, and better serve their customers.

Bartec USA announces their latest software update!

Bartec USA, the North American leader in TPMS Diagnostic tools and solutions, announces the release of their latest TPMS tool software update. “Software update 58 will revolutionize TPMS service,” according to Bartec CEO Scot Holloway. “Bartec is the industry leader when it comes to offering tool features that help our customers become more efficient and profitable servicing TPMS,” Holloway continued.

Bartec USA announces their latest software update

Software update 58 is now available for download for your respective Bartec TPMS Tool. In order to download and install this update, make sure you are a current subscriber at tools.bartecusa.com

This newest version of software is packed with features and coverages that only Bartec TPMS Tools can offer. The available features depend on which Bartec tool you have and are clearly defined in the software release bulletins found by clicking the Tech Support icon found in Bartec’s TPMS Desktop. Most notable is VINdicate®, Bartec’s exclusive new fast and easy way to select the vehicle and retrieve TPMS fault codes in one simple step. Simply connect the Bartec Pro Series tool to the OBDII port and let the tool do the work! The VIN is detected and decoded, and with the make-model-year selected, the DTC’s are also detected and decoded. Now the technician has the basis for understanding what services are necessary, making quoting and selling TPMS much easier.

Bartec USA announces their latest software update

“Of course, all of this information is stored as collected, and is easily retrieved and displayed on informative inspection reports. Bartec’s goal is to make the TPMS diagnostic and service process so fast to complete and easy to explain that our customers will sell more TPMS parts and service” according to Michael Rose, Product Manager at Bartec USA.

Also in update 58 is additional placard coverage for the Tech400 Pro. Bartec tools use a secure method for adjusting the placard to prevent making the TPMS inoperative. Bartec understands the level of security and safety required when connecting to vehicle control modules, and as a result they build in rock solid processes that help technicians be successful while keeping their customers safe and protected. For a complete rundown of all that update 58 offers, download the release notes at www.bartecusa.com/pdf/r58.0-software-release-document.pdf

As usual, Bartec will post updated coverage charts on their website bartecusa.com, specifically at bartecusa.com/tpms-tool-coverage-charts.html. Bartec’s TPMS coverage for OBD relearns, sensors covered and placard adjusting are second to none.

The School Bus Extension For Service Center

The School Bus extension for Service Center adds dedicated wheel and tire inspection functionality so you can inspect buses more quickly, more accurately and with an instant audit trail of all activity. The time and location of every inspection is tracked by the application and accurate tread and pressure measurements are logged for each wheel.

The School Bus Extension For Service Center

Every week over 400,000 buses take our children to school. Regular inspections by the operator, audited by the District and State, ensure that those vehicles are in a safe operating condition. The purpose-designed 'School Bus' extension for Service Center makes those inspections accurate, paper-free and easily auditable. Any faults found are instantly notified to the fleet manager by email or SMS, minimizing downtime and ensuring an unsafe vehicle never makes it back out onto the road! Fast, Paperless Inspections - The Service Center app has everything you need and nothing you don't. It automatically downloads your fleet list so starting an inspection is simple – just tap in a few characters from the fleet number, license plate or VIN number.
