Arrow Distributing and Sys2K Integrate Software

Tue Sep 13, 2016

“Streamlining the parts ordering and receiving process is a key component to helping RV dealers run a more profitable parts department," Andy Mullin of Arrow Distributing says. "We are continually working on similar partnerships to be able to provide dealers these valuable tools to help them experience true efficiencies while accomplishing their overall business goals. To help us and our RV dealers, Sys2K will be in attendance at our annual Exhibitor’s Showcase Jan. 24 and 25. Having Sys2K in attendance will be a much anticipated addition to our show. In addition to educating dealers of the full potential of our new partnership they will also be able to inform new dealers of the benefits of their system.“

This integration will allow parts departments to look up availability as well as order parts directly from their Infinity software. 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.
