Merrimack, NH and Redmond, WA (May 4, 2011) –
ASA Tire Systems, the industry leader in providing software systems and services to tire dealers, has joined with Acquirint, a leading provider of transaction processing software solutions to some of the world's largest business and financial institutions, in a strategic partnership for the provision of secure and compliant payment processing systems for tire dealers.
