Enhancements Expand Market Leading Offering to Help Dealers
Sell More Stuff!(TM)


MILWAUKEE, July 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ARI Network Services
(OTCBB:ARIS), a leading provider of website, software and data
solutions that help dealers, distributors, and manufacturers Sell More
Stuff!(TM), announced today that it has upgraded its award-winning
website platform used by independent automotive tire and wheel dealers.

“This release further demonstrates our commitment to providing
independent automotive tire and wheel dealers a website solution that
will consistently generate traffic, quotes and sales,” said Roy W.
Olivier, President and CEO of ARI. “This is a highly competitive market
and, as a result, dealers need cost-effective, easy-to-use solutions
that will help them differentiate their dealership from their
competition and consistently generate more online and in-store sales,”
added Olivier.

Highlights of the upgrade include:

New ARI-Powered User Tools Increase Service Department Revenue

Power User Tools now enable independent tire and wheel dealers to
upsell additional products and services to buyers. When a consumer adds
tire installation to the shopping cart, dealers now have the option to
display additional services and add-ons at MSRP or special pricing.

Services Added to Instant Search Results Increase Quotes

The frequently-used Instant Search bar quickly displays a complete list
of services available and takes buyers directly to the appropriate page
for more information based on their selection.

Enhanced Tire Information Improves Consumer Shopping Experience

ARI has taken the mystery out of industry-standard tire codes,
including speed rating and load index. Consumer-friendly descriptions
make it easier for consumers to select the best tire or wheel for their
vehicle.
