ARI to Demonstrate Breakthrough Technology at the 2012 NAFA I&E

ARI Executives, IT Experts and Sales Team Will Be Present

MOUNT LAUREL, NJ--(Marketwire - Apr 19, 2012) - ARI®, a leading global fleet services provider specializing in complex car and truck fleets, announced its executives and information technology specialists will be onsite at the NAFA Institute & Expo scheduled for April 21 - 24 at the America's Center in Saint Louis, MO along with many of the company's sales managers to provide a glimpse of its breakthrough data analysis technology and to spend quality time with the fleet community.

Visitors to the ARI booth, #1001, will see demonstrations of the company's fleet management reporting package, ARI analytics™, using in-memory technology through the SAP HANA™ platform to analyze data 3600 times faster than any other reporting tool in the fleet industry today and with the ability to substantially broaden the scope of fleet reporting.

"The demonstrations we'll provide of ARI analytics™ and other client systems utilizing our new in-memory technology will far exceed those we've done at prior NAFA Expos," said Steve Haindl, senior vice president and CIO at ARI. "We're excited about this first opportunity to show to our clients this incredible technology and its unprecedented level of speed and strategy."

Expo attendees who participate in a survey at the ARI booth about upcoming technology opportunities and challenges in the fleet industry will be entered to win a new iPad 3. ARI is also accepting bids at its booth for Bose Noise Reduction Headphones, which the company is donating for NAFA's Silent Auction with proceeds benefiting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

In addition to these Expo activities, ARI executives will participate in two NAFA Institute sessions. On Saturday, April 21, ARI Vice President Vehicle Remarketing, Bob Graham, will be among a panelist of experts for "How to Fund New Vehicles and Remarket Surplus Vehicles," which will address how fleets are funding and replacing vehicles in these tough economic times.

On Monday, April 23, ARI President Carl Ortell will participate along with other executives from top fleet management companies in the "More Straight Talk from Fleet Leasing Executives" session.
