MILWAUKEE, Wis. - ARI Network Services Inc. (OTCBB: ARIS) announced it will develop and deploy a custom website to support the parts and accessories business operations for Yamaha's Customer Support Group. The deal with the OEM is one of ARI's largest contracts for professional services to date, the company said.

The site, which ARI will build, host and maintain, will include a new content management system enabling the Yamaha Customer Support Group to take advantage of dynamic product merchandising and easier catalog updates. PartStream, ARI’s consumer?oriented, mobile?friendly illustrated parts lookup service, will allow customers to look up parts, garments, accessories and service items round the clock.

“Our goal is to increase brand visibility of Yamaha Genuine Parts and Accessories. In addition, we want to provide consumers with an online experience that equals, if not exceeds, the best experience available on the web today,” said Frank Pittman, general manager of the CSG.

“We were confident that ARI would be able to help us meet these goals for three reasons," Pittman said. "First, ARI has been a trusted partner for more than a decade, providing our dealers with accurate, up?to?date parts lookup through PartSmart. Second, ARI has a proven track record of building and hosting our corporate website, www.yamaha?motor.com. And, finally, we’re confident that ARI’s demonstrated commitment to using forward?looking technology will continue to enable Yamaha to deploy robust, user?friendly solutions.”

“Yamaha CSG’s selection of ARI is a further testament to the value of the products and services that we have provided Yamaha Motor Corporation over the past 14 years,” said Roy W. Olivier, president and CEO of ARI. “We look forward to working together to build and deploy an online parts and accessories solution for consumers that will meet their current and future business requirements.”
