The undertaking that ARI completed in 2013 correlates data from various business systems relative to existing vendors, customer vehicles and financial transactions. The solution allows ARI to visibly analyze a market down to the operating vehicles, maintenance spend and proximate vendors.
Correlating this information with geospatial dashboards provides ARI with a clear picture and allows the company both to better communicate with its vendors about the opportunities in their immediate market and to negotiate stronger discounts on behalf of its clients.
“This year we share this recognition with members of our vendor relations and fleet management services teams, who worked with us to develop an original business model for our industry that provides growth opportunities for our business partners while extending greater cost savings to our customers,” said ARI Executive Vice President and CIO Steve Haindl.
Previously named the InformationWeek 500 awards, the more selective Elite 100 Awards marks the 26th year InformationWeek has identified and honored the nation’s most innovative users of business technology. ARI was ranked on the InformationWeek 500 in 2012 and 2013.
