ARI Network Services, Inc. has announced the launch of its first mobile app designed to simplify major unit inventory management for the company’s dealer website customers. ARI Mobile allows dealers to quickly and easily add new inventory to their websites, optimize inventory listings and syndicate to third party sales channels.
“ARI Mobile offers dealers an innovative new tool that puts complete contro of their dealership’s major unit inventory in the palm of thier hand,” said Brad Smith, ARI Vice President of Product Management. “With 81% of shoppers researching major purchases online before visiting a store, according to GE Capital Retail Bank research, it’s critical for dealers to list their full inventory online to capture consumer interest and drive in-store traffic. ARI Mobile presents a significant value to dealers allowing them to keep major unit inventory up-to-date in a fraction of the time.”
ARI Mobile eliminates the need to use a computer to manage inventory. It easily matches new inventory to ARI’s data library to auto-populate stock photos and OEM specifications. Dealers can upload unique inventory photos directly from a phone or tablet camera, eliminating tedious
photo transfers via a desktop computer. Assign units to a dealer’s website, showrooms and third-party sales channels including ARI Inventory powered by LotVantage, CarSoup and CycleTrader. Sort inventory by recently added or filter to find incomplete listings and fill in missing details including photos, colors, stock numbers and more. Dealers can share listings via email, text message or social media channels.
Available for both iOS and Android, ARI Mobile is immediately available as an upsell to the more than 1,500 powersports dealers who rely on ARI’s powersports dealer website platform and will soon be available to ARI’s 1600+ customers in the marine, outdoor power equipment and recreational vehicle markets.
