CDK Global Recreation, provider of Lightspeed dealer management solutions announced that it has signed an exclusive reseller agreement with ARI Network Services, Inc. CDK Recreation will integrate AccessorySmart, ARI’s powersports aftermarket parts and accessories product discovery software, into Lightspeed and offer the service to its network of thousands of U.S.-based powersports dealers. All qualifying CDK Recreation dealers using Lightspeed will automatically have the AccessorySmart integration available for complimentary limited time use.
“This agreement is a big win for powersports dealers,” said Kris Denos, vice president and general manager for CDK Recreation. “The AccessorySmart tool integration with CDK’s Lightspeed will help dealers increase their average invoice totals and provide a valuable service by offering numerous fitment options. Dealers currently using AccessorySmart as a stand-alone web app have yet another reason to take a look at Lightspeed. The integration between the two products offers time savings, convenience, and accuracy to dealers and their customers.”
AccessorySmart offers dealers access to over 30 aftermarket product catalogs, with advanced fitment, pricing, and availability search across a variety of distributors. It is the only solution of its kind in the industry. The integration with CDK’s LightspeedEVO and LightspeedNXT dealer management systems (DMS) provides visibility of in-store product availability and pricing, as well as the ability to push desired products to a Lightspeed invoice with one click.
“We are thrilled to further expand upon our relationship with CDK and enable dealers to drive more upsells and increase average ticket value with our solution,” said Roy W. Olivier, President and CEO of ARI. “Just as dealers can gain greater efficiencies by leveraging CDK’s DMS solutions, dealers can further increase their sales and the efficiency of their employees at the parts counter by enabling them to do in seconds what used to take several minutes – all while finding more time to sell to the customer. I am confident that this collaboration will help dealers Sell More Stuff!”
