Integrate to Mitchell Labor Guide

Tire Quoter needs to calculate Shop Supplies with the Tire Quote


When customers get a tire quote from MaxxTraxx, it currently does not include the Shop Supplies in the total. That always causes a question from the customer when we get payment because the total is a few dollars more than the original Tire Quote.

Integrate to outside Payroll Service provider such as Paychex, ADP, Etc.


MaxxTraxx has a great payroll systems, but we need to also have an integration to a few of the outside Payroll Services such as Paychex, ADP, etc..
