To celebrate its 40th Anniversary taking place this month, CAM has committed to spending GBP 1.5 million of investment annually to secure software innovation, research and development with the combined goals of keeping the tyre industry connected and helping to amplify future growth within the market.
CAM Celebrates 40 Years of Innovation in the Tyre Industry
Since its inception in 1981 by founders Trevor Allen and Len Miller, CAM has become the primary tyre solutions provider for 19 of the UK’s top 25 tyre wholesalers, with 16 of the UK’s top 25 tyre retailers choosing CAM products to manage their tyre systems.
A total of GBP 4.5 billion of tyre orders have been placed online via CAM’s MIDaS solution since it was introduced in 1995. This year, the MIDaS e-commerce platform will handle close to five million transactions alone.
Following its introduction in 2015, CAM’s easy-to-use e-jobsheet app for truck, bus, van, industrial and car tyre servicing is assisting 1,700 tyre fitters, working on 4,000 UK fleet vehicles every weekday, recording and relaying their jobs instantaneously to the fleet service provider.
In addition, over 50 commercial tyre service providers from across the UK are connected to fleet contract holders via the TiDaeX platform and the e-jobsheet app.
