AccessorySmart is the only fitment-powered aftermarket part, garment and accessory (PG&A) lookup solution of its kind. It provides dealers with accurate, up-to-date vehicle fitment, product SKUs, price, description, specifications and images in an easy-to-use, online interface.

“Delivering integrated solutions will help dealers grow their business and Sell More Stuff!™,” said Jon Lintvet, Chief Marketing Officer and Vice President of Product at ARI. “Bringing together AccessorySmart and ADP Lightspeed’s Dealer Management System is a win for our dealers. Quickly and accurately finding the right part the first time, including availability and pricing across multiple distributors and on-hand inventory, just got a lot easier,” added Lintvet. “We believe demand for the

integrated solution will be high among ADP Lightspeed’s more than 2,500 powersports dealers. We look forward to working with ADP Lightspeed and their dealers.”
