Joins growing number of manufacturers and distributors adding ARI’s eCatalogs to increase sales
Milwaukee, Wis., September 25, 2013– ARI Network Services (OTCBB: ARIS), a leading provider of website, software, and data solutions that help dealers, distributors, and manufacturers Sell More Stuff!™, announced today that a leading nationwide distributor of power tools and engines in the outdoor power industry selected ARI to provide online parts catalogs for integration with its dealer portal.
“The integration of our eCatalog solution will allow this distributor to extend the capabilities of its existing dealer portal to increase sales, improve customer satisfaction and reduce operational inefficiencies, ” said Roy W. Olivier, President and Chief Executive Officer of ARI.
The distributor was looking for a cloud-based solution to streamline the parts lookup and online ordering process. ARI will integrate its eCatalog solution with the distributor’s dealer portal to allow the distributor’s more than 500 dealers throughout the U.S. to quickly and accurately look up parts, view availability and pricing and add the results to a shopping cart to complete the order. Prior to ARI’s solution, dealers could not visually research or identify parts. This gap generated an increasing amount of operational support and was not scalable as the distributor’s business grew.
“In FY 2013, five new manufacturers and distributors selected one or more of ARI’s scalable solutions to help their more than 6500 dealers collectively consistently improve order accuracy, customer satisfaction and increase sales. This is a testament to ARI’s expertise in this space and the value of the products and services we provide, ” added Olivier.
