ARI Network Services announced that nizeX and ARI have signed a reseller agreement. Under the terms of this agreement, nizeX will resell ARI’s eCatalogs for the leading outdoor power and powersports manufacturers, including Arctic Cat, Ariens, Briggs & Stratton, Kawasaki, MTD, Polaris, Toro and Yamaha, to Lizzy’s customers and prospects. Lizzy is nizeX’s web-based dealer business management system.

ARI’s long-term commitment to the dealers we mutually serve made our decision to work with ARI easy,” says Glenn Hancock, president of nizeX. “In addition, ARI has the most comprehensive, OEM-provided catalog content in the industry. We are pleased to now be able to provide Lizzy dealers with a seamlessly integrated, easy-to-use parts lookup solution. We are confident that our dealers will quickly realize increased productivity and cost savings in their parts and service departments.”

“We are very pleased to announce our strategic alliance with nizeX,” says Roy W. Olivier, president and chief executive officer at ARI. “We are committed to working with industry leaders in the outdoor power, powersports, marine and RV industries to deliver integrated solutions that help dealers streamline their business operations. We’re confident that the combination of Lizzy with our parts data library for more than 90 manufacturers delivers a superior parts lookup solution.”

nizeX, formerly known as SofTek Software, has been providing their customers with integration to PartSmart, ARI’s CD-based lookup solution, for many years,” says Jon Lintvet, chief marketing officer & vice president of product at ARI. “This agreement marks the first time that dealer management system users will be able to access ARI’s award-winning eCatalogs from within their DMS, providing dealers with a seamless user experience and eliminating the need to run multiple applications in parallel. This solution is very compelling and we fully expect to add several hundred eCatalog subscribers as a result.”
