ARI -- a Milwaukee, Wis.-based provider of technology-enabled Data-as-a-Service (DaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) business solutions that help dealers, distributors and manufacturers increase revenue and reduce costs -- announced March 20 that Fidelitone Inc. of Wauconda, Ill., has licensed DataStream for a national retailer with 1,800 locations nationwide.
Under the multi-year agreement, ARI will provide Fidelitone with electronic parts catalog data for multiple outdoor power manufacturers, including Ariens, Briggs & Stratton Corporation, MTD and Toro.
"We selected ARI and DataStream based on ARI's more than 30 years of experience and expertise in converting disparate manufacturer data into a normalized, easy-to-use format," said Josh Johnson, president of Fidelitone. "Working with ARI will allow us to quickly and cost-effectively deploy accurate parts catalogs into our customer's channel to help them support their service efforts."
"We're excited about the opportunity to stream real-time, enhanced parts data to Fidelitone that will allow their business alliances to look up and order parts," said Roy W. Olivier, president and chief executive officer at ARI. "This relationship aligns perfectly with our core strategy of leveraging our comprehensive library of parts data from more than 125 of the leading manufacturers in the outdoor power, powersports and marine industries to help our customers sell more whole goods and PG&A."
