Mobile-friendly illustrated parts lookup solution critical element of eCommerce launch

Milwaukee, Wis., April 6,  2015 – ARI Network Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARIS) announced today that a leading outdoor power equipment manufacturer has launched ARI’s PartStream® illustrated parts lookup to power the shopping experience on its consumer-facing website.

The manufacturer sought a mobile-friendly solution that would offer shoppers the ability to quickly and easily find and buy replacement parts on its website. ARI worked in collaboration with the manufacturer’s eCommerce development partner to create a replacement parts shopping experience optimized for both desktop and mobile browsers.

“With mobile browsing eclipsing desktop browsing in the summer of 2014, the manufacturer recognized that it is more critical than ever for brands to create an online shopping experience that works seamlessly across devices, ” said Brad Smith, ARI’s Vice President of Product Management. “We’re confident that the mobile-friendly eCommerce experience enabled by PartStream will deliver a superior shopping experience across all devices, improve customer satisfaction and drive more online parts sales.”
