“Without doubt, technology is changing our industry; whether you are operating server or cloud-based
management software, or maybe clinging to pen and paper, change is inevitable. This technology freight train is coming through your town. “You have a choice, jump on, or get left behind.” As harsh as this last statement sounds, it is a terse reality, as a business owner or tow company employee, you cannot afford to be left behind. This harsh reality applies to all aspects of our industry, including efficient software, the threat of third party dispatching, non-consent police tows, private property towing, and consent motor club tows. No one, company has the resources to be all things to all people; the answer is to collaborate with others whose added-value features enhance your company’s offering. We encourage you to join, support and collaborate with your state’s towing Association, get involved and become informed. This ultimately benefits your company’s competitive advantage, and its long-term profitability, and or survival.
VTS Systems collaborates with other like-minded companies to bring you a better and more cost effective
product. An example of collaboration, for our larger clients, and those who require more than simple
bookkeeping, VTS Systems offers optional integration with QuickBooks. Here is why it makes good business
sense… Beyond basic accounts receivable and tracking driver commissions, enhanced general accounting and
payroll features are not considered part of towing and storage lot management. From engineering concept to
final product, all things are enhanced with software, and the requests for new software features are neverending. However, money and resources are not bottomless, and it is important that basic towing software be affordable. Offering expansion options and collaborating with other companies to provide integrated value-add services is a cost-effective method of providing more features for companies with the need, and deeper pockets.
To meet the varied needs of large or small towing companies, VTS Systems offers VTS Lite and VTS Classic,
server and PC-based applications. VTS Lite is a comprehensive, yet low cost software application designed to meet the needs of small family towing businesses.
