ARI Network Services, Inc., provider of the lead management tool FootSteps, today (Feb. 9) announced that it has signed a multi-year reseller agreement with Exuma Technologies, makers of DockMaster and RVMaster.
According to a press release, under the terms of this agreement, ARI and Exuma will integrate their products, and Exuma will resell FootSteps Essentials and Professional to its current and future customers in the marine and RV Industries.
“Our goal is to provide the best solution for marine and RV businesses to automate and integrate all aspects of their operations – service, parts, inventory, sales, fixed operations and accounting,” said Cam Collins, president of North Palm Beach, Fla.-based Exuma Technologies. “Our decision to enter into an alliance with ARI was simple. We have the same goal: help make our dealers even more successful. We are confident that our dealers will quickly capitalize on the competitive advantage FootSteps lead management and nurture marketing adds to DockMaster and RVMaster.
“We welcome this opportunity to provide Exuma customers with an end-to-end solution that will help them capture qualified leads and convert them into sales,” said Roy W. Olivier, president and CEO of ARI. “ARI is pleased to announce its strategic alliance with Exuma. The combination of FootSteps and Exuma’s dealer management systems is very powerful. It will help dealers streamline their lead management processes to drive sales and profits.”
FootSteps Essentials is an affordable, easy-to-use lead management solution. It 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.
Exuma Technologies, a leading producer of management software for the RV & marine industries, announced the latest product offerings that integrate with RVMaster, their RV dealer management software.
According to a press release, its new ThreeClix offers “real time lead management delivered via a sales person’s smart phone that is a first for the RV industry and highlights Exuma’s commitment to delivering the latest and most effective technologies to its customers.” The company is also offering a hosted cloud computing solution for those RV dealerships that don’t want to invest heavily in typical hardware and network infrastructure expenses.
“Today’s dealerships are becoming more and more dependent upon mobile solutions,” said Cam Collins, CEO of Exuma Technologies. “Our cloud computing environment gives our dealers the ability to access their data via a secure Internet connection accessible from a wide range of devices from virtually anywhere.”
RVMaster was unveiled at the RV Dealers National Convention and Expo in 2010 and Exuma has taken several RV dealers live on the system since that time. At this year’s Oct. 3-7 convention in Las Vegas, the company will highlight the functionality of the dealer management system and the suite of new features, while also unveiling and demonstrating its other new product lines.
