DEALER EXPO, Indianapolis, Ind. - NizeX has made several upgrades to its Web-based Lizzy dealer management system, and is offering three pricing specials:

  • No start-up investment for the first 10 dealers who sign up during Dealer Expo.
  • After-show special for 60 days: 50 percent off start-up investment.
  • After-show special for 2012: 25 percent off start-up investment.

The start-up investment covers software setup, training and data conversions, which average $1,495 to $3,495.

NizeX has integrated ARI’s eCatalogs into Lizzy, helping users look up parts. NizeX will resell eCatalogs for manufacturers like Arctic Cat, Kawasaki, Polaris and Yamaha.

“ARI’s long‐term commitment to the dealers we mutually serve made our decision to work with ARI easy,” says Glenn Hancock, president of Georgia-based NizeX. “In addition, ARI has the most comprehensive OEM‐provided catalog content in the industry. We are pleased to now be able to provide Lizzy dealers with a seamlessly integrated, easy‐to‐use parts lookup solution. We are confident that our dealers will quickly realize increased productivity and cost savings in their parts and service departments.”

Jon Lintvet is ARI’s chief marketing officer and VP of product. “NizeX, formerly known as SofTek Software, has been providing their customers with integration to PartSmart, ARI’s CD‐based lookup solution, for many years,” he says. “This agreement marks the first time that dealer management system users will be able to access ARI’s award‐winning eCatalogs from within their DMS, providing dealers with a seamless user experience and eliminating the need to run multiple applications in parallel. This solution is very compelling and we fully expect to add several hundred eCatalog subscribers as a result.”

Attendees have the opportunity to meet with NizeX (Booth 5043) and ARI (Booth 4861) for a demonstration of the eCatalog integration with Lizzy. Also new: a ScanTag feature that allows service techs to scan a VIN or barcode label. Lizzy automatically locates the customer and unit, and creates the service ticket after one click.

Other Lizzy upgrades include an enhanced F&I System, a new Rental Module, a new Advanced Service Scheduling System, a new checklist feature built into the system’s CRM, and new advanced dashboard controls for each department. NizeX is completing a new Web store module that will allow dealers to push items to a custom Web store, eliminating daily updates or extra integration requirements.
