Integration enables WebsiteSmart™ subscribers to automatically upload vehicle inventory
Milwaukee, Wis., October 16, 2012 – ARI Network Services, Inc. (OTCBB: ARIS), a leader in creating, marketing, and supporting SaaS and DaaS solutions that connect consumers, dealers, distributors, and manufacturers in selected vertical markets, announced today that ARI has been named an official inventory feed provider for CycleTrader.com. CycleTrader.com is one of the nation’s most popular classified sites to buy and sell new and used motorcycles.
The integration with CycleTrader is an optional add-on to ARI’s WebsiteSmart solution. Dealers can now easily synchronize inventory listings between their ARI website and CycleTrader. The integration also includes the ability to upload inventory to ATVTrader.com, PWCTrader.com and SnowmobileTraderonline.com.
“We’re excited to provide our WebsiteSmart customers with the ability to automatically upload inventory to CycleTrader, ” said Brad Smith, Director of Product Management at ARI. “The integration will help ARI customers save valuable time and sell more products. We’re confident that dealers will welcome this addition and will quickly see direct bottom-line results.”
“We had been uploading our bike inventory to CycleTrader manually. When ARI presented us the option to integrate our website with CycleTrader, we jumped at the opportunity, ” said Matt Mechling, owner of Interstate Cycle, Inc., Cornelius, N.C. “WebsiteSmart’s new integration has not only improved the accuracy of our listings and our overall efficiency, but has also saved us a great deal of time and effort. That means that our bikes hit CycleTrader faster, and that translates into quicker sales.”
