Briggs & Stratton Corp.: Selects ARI’s PartStream(R)

Illustrated parts lookup solution added to improve online
user experience



MILWAUKEE, Nov. 18, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ARI Network Services, Inc.
(Nasdaq:ARIS) announced today that Briggs & Stratton Corporation has
launched ARI’s PartStream(R) illustrated parts lookup on its
consumer-facing website at BriggsandStratton.com.



“We strive to continue to improve the user experience on our website.
We actively solicit and review user feedback and in doing so, uncovered
that our parts lookup could use improvement,” said Dave Cluka, Director
of Customer Experience at Briggs & Stratton. “We believe that
PartStream can not only provide a better user experience, but also
reduce the burden on our team to maintain the previous, custom-built
parts lookup tool.”



The launch of PartStream builds upon a 15-year relationship with the
manufacturer. Briggs & Stratton also uses ARI’s B2B electronic parts
lookup application, PartSmart Web(R), as well as ARI’s data publishing
tool, PartSmart Data Manager(R). In addition, ARI provides Briggs &
Stratton’s dealer network with access to parts catalogs for the
manufacturer’s complete brand portfolio through PartSmart(R), ARI’s
award-winning electronic parts lookup tool.



“We welcome the opportunity to extend our relationship with Briggs &
Stratton to provide consumers with a better online parts lookup
experience,” said Roy W. Olivier, President and CEO of ARI.
“Identifying and ordering the right part online can be frustrating,
even for the most technically-savvy consumer. We’re confident that
PartStream will reduce frustration, improve customer satisfaction and
drive more online parts sales.”



PartStream, ARI’s illustrated parts lookup solution, can easily be
added to any existing website to fuel eCommerce sales. Part numbers and
descriptions are automatically indexed for search engine optimization,
making it easy for buyers to find and purchase parts online.
