RideNow Powersports, Country's Largest Powersports Group, Chooses Specialty Mobile Apps
NEW YORK, Sept. 12, 2012 -- Specialty Reports, Inc., a subsidiary of Sparta Commercial Services, Inc. (OTCBB: SRCO), today announced that RideNow Powersports, America's largest powersports dealer group, has chosen Specialty Mobile Apps, a product of Specialty Reports, as its mobile app provider.
Headquartered in Tempe, AZ, RideNow Powersports began in 1983 with a small Honda store in Chandler, AZ. The company now has twenty-two dealerships in Arizona, Nevada, North Carolina, Florida, Texas, and Washington, employing over 600 people. The company's franchises include virtually all major brands of motorcycles, ATV's, and personal watercraft.
The Specialty Mobile App product offered by Specialty Reports provides powersports, auto, marine, and RV dealers with a mobile app solution especially designed for those types of retail operations and gives dealers a more feature-rich, flexible, and dynamic way to communicate with their customers, and others, than ever before possible. Whether the dealers want to show their new and used inventory, inform their customers about service specials or sales, announce events, or get the word out about a myriad of other features and services, the very affordable Specialty Mobile App has no peer. And whenever upgrades, new features or a new "mobile" device is added to our platform, they are automatically added to the dealer's dashboard and menu. All our Apps for phones and tablets are offered to the dealerships' customers at no cost.
Commenting on the choice of Specialty Mobile Apps, Matt Petrovich, RideNow's Director of Marketing, said "Our search for the best mobile app for our business began about a year ago. We looked at several other app development companies, but eventually settled on Specialty Mobile Apps because we found it to be the best, most robust, and definitely the most impressive solution for our purposes. We were also highly impressed with their customer service and support, and their broad industry expertise. Finally, the fact that they do not require any contract meant to us that their confidence in the product was extremely strong, and that was also particularly impressive."
Adding his own thoughts about the relationship, Anthony Havens, CEO of Sparta Commercial and Specialty Reports, said "Among the many powersports dealerships around the country that have purchased our Specialty Mobile App product are a considerable number of multi-location dealer groups. But to have RideNow Powersports as customer is particularly rewarding because they are the largest in the nation and that further validates the unique value of Specialty Mobile Apps. We're especially pleased to have this outstanding company as a new customer."
