You will have access to our team of dedicated product specialists to help you get the most out of your system.  Our team has decades of both COSTAR and industry experience but like you, we are always learning as our industry changes and grows.

Wholesale & Distribution

A true B2B solution, COSTAR can provide you with Web Order, Wholesale functionality and Warehouse Management, integrated into a single platform so that you will get the right product to the right client with a minimum of fuss.

COSTAR operates in both retail and wholesale environments and gives you the flexibility to use the retail and wholesale functionality separately or run both within one business. Additionally, the wholesale and distribution solution has both multi-company and multi-branch capability. COSTAR provides Warehouse and Automotive Inventory Management Software functionality that tracks products by location. The option to use RFI Guns and scanning to manage in-bound and out-bound inventory adds great efficiencies to the pick, pack and ship processes, allowing for greater volume to be easily processed with greater control. COSTAR’s Web Order system is an integral part of the COSTAR Tyre Distribution product, allowing your customers to quickly and easily access your inventory, check stock, get pricing and place orders electronically from their web browser.

Workshop

Providing the right tools to your technicians is vital in allowing them to do the best job that they can – and that includes COSTAR. At the centre of managing your workshop effectively is your COSTAR Appointment Scheduler. Fully integrated with the rest of COSTAR it allows your team to convert your quotes to appointments in the scheduler, assign technicians to specific jobs and to complete the scheduled work.

Create and customise inspection forms to suit your business and your customer requirements, and best of all you can complete these inspection forms on a tablet or phone in the workshop, eliminating double entry and mistakes when copying from workshop paper forms to your system. COSTAR Mobile allows you not only a mobile platform for the technicians but includes the ability to take, store and send photos which will provide your customers with clear evidence of any additional work required. Making sure that your customers are advised when their job is complete and ready for collections can be done simply by the built-in SMS feature.This same functionality is used to remind your existing customers of upcoming appointments, registration renewal, wheel alignments and scheduled services which provides excellent service and increases repeat business. Because we know that no workshop operates smoothly without the right people in the right jobs, there is a suite of Technician reports that will help you monitor productivity and improve efficiency. We can’t run your workshop, but we understand the tools that you need to make it run like a well-oiled machine.

Retreading

Seamlessly integrated with COSTAR, the Retread Management System (RMS) will manage the process of tracking your cases and retreads in either the retail, commercial or factory environments.

RMS uses a Ticketing system to hold key information about a specific case and clearly indicates the actions to be performed. The menu system in RMS provides you with process control as the case moves through the various stages of the retread process.  Consumption of tread and other associated consumables from COSTAR provides accurate inventory management and actual cost analysis for the finished product. Finally, the direct integration to COSTAR allows you to produce accurate and detailed Sales and Purchasing documents for your customers and ensures you recover any associated costs or process any required case credits with the minimum of fuss. COSTAR’s RMS make a powerful tool for managing your retread business.
