Milwaukee, Wis., August 6, 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 regional distributor of power products selected ARI’s eCatalog platform to integrate online parts lookup with its existing order management system.
“The addition of ARI’s eCatalog platform will allow this distributor of power products, including industrial engines, diesel fuel injection systems and accessories, to meet the growing need for a streamlined, on-demand parts lookup solution, ” said Roy W. Olivier, President and Chief Executive Officer of ARI.
The distributor was seeking a cloud-based solution to enhance its existing dealer portal. ARI will provide the distributor and its 300 dealers with an easy-to-use solution that includes parts lookup, availability and pricing; and seamless integration with their current shopping cart. Prior to selecting ARI, the parts lookup and ordering process was time consuming, provided limited accessibility and was subject to error, impacting their ability to drive more sales and grow the business.
“When part sales are critical to your company’s growth, you need proven solutions and an experienced partner, ” added Olivier. “ARI has extensive experience providing distributors with integrated cloud-based eCatalog solutions that increase sales, improve customer satisfaction and reduce operational inefficiency.”
