Sys2K and Arrow Distributing Integrate Management Software

Thu Sep 8, 2016

145564770657307.jpgAltamonte Springs, Florida - Sys2K and Arrow Distributing have announced the availability of an integration between the two companies that will streamline exchanges between dealership management software and the parts ordering process. This partnership and the companies' combination of software and parts ordering are key components to optimizing the ordering process and user experience.

With an accumulative 60-plus years of experience, both Sys2k and Arrow Distributing are able to provide skilled and professional customer service which will benefit not only the dealers but the customers they serve.

“I am happy to announce our partnership with Arrow Distributing, a parts distribution company with over 35 years experience serving the RV and mobile home industry," says Traeanne Reynolds, Sys2K's international director of sales, marketing and implementation. "This integration is another testimonial of both companies' commitment to provide great customer service and technological advancements to help parts departments systematize and improve their ordering processes."

This integration will allow parts departments to look up availability as well as order parts directly from Infinity. This saves the user time as they do not have to leave the DMS to place orders and re-key information onto the distributor's website. Along with a streamlined user experience, this integration also will allow for an improved response time, better performance, and the benefits of a single work station for all of the dealership's needs.

“Our new integration with Sys2K is exciting and our dealers who use Sys2K are enthusiastic to start realizing the capabilities with real-time integration across both systems,” Arrow Distributing Vice President of Sales Andy Mullin says.
