ARI To Provide Its Award-Winning Websites To KYMCO USA Dealers

MILWAUKEE, Feb. 11, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ARI Network Services (ARI) (Nasdaq:ARIS) announced today that it has signed an agreement with KYMCO USA to offer the manufacturer's more than 620 independent dealers in the U.S. KYMCO USA-branded websites.

Harnessing the power of ARI's award-winning dealer website platform, the branded sites will give authorized KYMCO USA dealers exclusive features including factory promotions, pre-loaded inventory data and access to KYMCO USA's image library. In addition, the websites will be included in KYMCO USA's dealer locator.

"We look forward to working with KYMCO USA and their dealers to help drive more traffic, leads and sales not only to their websites, but to dealers' brick and mortar stores," said Roy W. Olivier, ARI President and CEO. "With the majority of consumers researching products online, it's more important than ever for dealers to not only have an online presence, but to make sure that consumers visiting OEM websites can find their dealership."

Each site also includes used equipment pages, which dealers can utilize to load their entire inventory of pre-owned vehicles. Plus, the website enables dealers to automatically feed their inventory data to third-party classified sites, including CycleTrader.com, Motorcycleinventory.com, ATV.com, Motorcycle.com, Chopper Exchange and CarSoup.

"It's very exciting to be partnering with ARI and to have the opportunity to offer our dealers KYMCO USA-branded websites," said Rick Pawelka, KYMCO USA Director of Marketing. "As an emerging brand, it's important that our dealers follow the coordinated national advertising programs developed by KYMCO USA's advertising department. Having a brand-specific, online presence that reflects the image and marketing direction created by KYMCO USA is just another step in the right direction."

For more information on KYMCO USA-branded websites powered by ARI, contact ARI Powersports Sales Manager Aubrey Amborn at 866.724.3714 or email powersports@arinet.com.
