ARI was recently featured in a case study by Infosol, a leading business intelligence solutions company. ARI’s Vendor Management team was looking for a solution to build stronger relationships with maintenance vendors across the U.S. while maintaining our mission to keep efficiencies up and costs down for customers. ARI developed a dashboard using data like total vehicles, vehicle makes and model years, as well as a breakdown of repair types (brakes, tires, oil & lube, etc.) to identify vendors that could yield the greatest savings for customer vehicle repairs by geographic region.
The result led to providing more business for ARI’s key vehicle servicing vendors, while improving efficiencies and reducing costs for its clients. Don Woods, ARI’s department head for Client Information Systems, said, “ARI’s Vendor Management Dashboard increased our team’s capacity to prioritize vendors by geography, which helped lower preferred customer rates 50%, increase sales for our vendors by 20%, and reduce customer’s overall maintenance costs up to 20%.”
