ARI Mobile App Wins Boating Industry Top Product Award

MILWAUKEE, May 11, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ARI Network Services, Inc. (Nasdaq:ARIS) announced today that ARI Mobile has received a 2015 Boating Industry Top Product Award. Winners of the Boating Industry Top Products Awards were selected by the editors of Boating Industry magazine.

"When selecting the Top Products, we're looking for solutions to problems," said Boating Industry Editor-in-Chief Jonathan Sweet. "The ARI Mobile app allows dealers to simplify major unit inventory management, while freeing them from their desktop."

ARI Mobile, ARI's proprietary smartphone and tablet app, eliminates the need to use a computer to manage inventory – an industry first – allowing dealers to upload unique inventory photos directly from a phone or tablet's camera and easily match new inventory to ARI's data library to auto-populate stock photos and OEM specifications. ARI Mobile also enables users to feed inventory to third-party sales channels including ARI Inventory powered by LotVantage, CarSoup and CycleTrader and share listings via email, text message or social media channels.

"It's an honor to be among the winners of the 2015 Boating Industry Top Products winners," said Brad Smith, Vice President of Product Management at ARI. "ARI Mobile offers dealers an innovative tool that puts complete control of their dealership's major unit inventory in the palm of their hand. It presents a significant value to dealers, allowing them to keep major unit inventory up-to-date in a fraction of the time."

ARI also announced the launch of ARI Mobile Version 2.0, available for both iOS and Android operating systems last week. Building upon the success of the product's initial launch in October 2014, Version 2.0 adds additional time-saving features including a more robust inventory search, online view count visibility and streamlined image management.
