ARI Network Services Inc., a provider of the lead management tool FootSteps, today (Jan. 12) announced that the company has signed a multi-year reseller agreement with UVS Junction LLC.
According to a press release, under the terms of this agreement, ARI and UVS will integrate their products and UVS will resell FootSteps Essentials and Professional to its current and future customers.
“The integration of FootSteps with our website platform provides our dealers with a powerful one-two punch,” said Angie Cellucci, founder and director of UVS Junction. “UVS sites help dealers generate qualified sales opportunities, and FootSteps helps dealers nurture these opportunities and convert more leads into sales. The word ‘Junction’ in our corporate name means ‘to connect. After an extensive search for a company that would help us provide the perfect connection, we made the decision to team up with ARI. We are excited to launch this new relationship and bring FootSteps to our customers and to the RV community at large.”
“In the complex world of eCommerce, dealers will benefit from an end-to-end solution that meets their eCommerce, lead management and end-user experience needs,” said Roy W. Oliver, president and CEO at ARI. “ARI is pleased to announce its strategic alliance with UVS. Our lead management expertise combined with UVS’ Web platform delivers a superior solution for our mutual prospects and customers.”
“At ARI, we are committed to identifying and collaborating with other providers to deliver integrated solutions that help dealers profitably grow their business,” added Jon Lintvet, chief marketing officer and vice president of product at ARI. “UVS was looking for a new lead management solution to replace its current offering and best support its customers’ growing business needs.
“FootSteps provides UVS and its customers with a proven solution, already in use by many of the most respected names in the RV industry, and one that uniquely supports the RV industry and UVS’ customers ‘off the shelf,’” he added.
Lintvet said FootSteps Essentials helps dealers convert more opportunities into sales by automating a consistent lead nurturing and communication strategy and efficiently managing the sales process. FootSteps Professional is a more feature-rich version of the award-winning solution primarily designed to support the more expansive needs of dealers with multiple locations, many users, and multiple user roles.
Dealers attending the 2012 Stag-Parkway distributor show, Jan. 16 to 18, at the Mirage in Las Vegas, will have the opportunity to meet with UVS (Booth 918) and Bob McCann, director of education at ARI. McCann will share his ‘tips from the trenches’ with attendees that will help them save time, get the most out of their FootSteps integration, help grow their business, and forge ahead of the competition.
