MERRIMACK, NH. (Sept. 16, 2011) - ASA Automotive Systems, one of the leading software and technology providers for the tire and automotive aftermarket, had added Carfax® QuickVIN™ to its point of sale software offering. Users can now retrieve the year/make/model and vehicle identification number (VIN) of their customers' cars more quickly and easily by entering only the license plate information.

According to a recent study by Carfax, eight out of ten shop management system users would prefer to have Carfax QuickVIN available with their current system. Users can eliminate the risk of costly data entry errors and help ensure they order correctly-fitting parts.

"ASA continually adds technology that will enhance the productivity of our tire and auto service clients," said Ken Halle, president of ASA Automotive Systems. "Carfax is a valued partner of ASA and the QuickVIN tool will optimize the speed and efficiency of our dealers and allow them to offer an improved level of service to their customers."

Carfax QuickVIN users can also have their service records turned into free advertising that on Carfax Vehicle History Reports. Shop name and contact information appears alongside each service record on the Carfax Report, reaching millions of potential customers.

Attendees at the ASA annual InfoExpo conference in Atlanta Sept. 18 - 21 can visit the Carfax booth in the Solution Center for a live demonstration of the QuickVIN tool.
