Leading RV Manufacturer Selects ARI's Lead Management Product For Dealer Network

MILWAUKEE, Feb. 26, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ARI Network Services ( ARI) (Nasdaq:ARIS) announced today that a leading recreational vehicle manufacturer has selected ARI to provide FootSteps™ Channel Connect to its approximately 1,000 dealers throughout the U.S. and Canada to electronically capture, track and nurture all in-store customer visits, inbound/outbound sales calls and Internet leads.

The manufacturer was seeking a cloud-based lead management solution to replace its existing in-house system which only allowed limited lead management functionality. ARI's FootSteps Channel Connect will be deployed to provide the manufacturer and its dealers with an easy-to-use lead management solution to convert more shoppers into buyers. When consumers visit the manufacturer website to request a catalog, configure an RV or request more information, FootSteps Channel Connect will automatically assign the lead to the nearest dealership and then automate the follow-up, scheduling and management reporting to increase sales conversion rates.

"We're pleased to add yet another leading RV manufacturer to the growing number of OEMs using FootSteps Channel Connect to help its dealer network Sell More Stuff!™," said Brad Smith, ARI's Vice President of Product Management. "Our tool places the manufacturer in the driver's seat and provides them complete visibility and control of every single lead."
