While you might be more likely to see MLB or NHL jerseys while out and about, believe it or not, NASCAR is actually second only to the NFL in reaching the millennial crowd. And even as popular as soccer is worldwide, NASCAR reaches five times as many millennials per event as MLS.
Car racing isn’t exactly the dying sport that some make it out to be, which is good for these retailers. Auto and racing dynamos keep a large inventory on hand and need tightly integrated and powerful platforms to work with their Sage catalogs in order to win. See how each of these auto-related businesses have found success with IN-SYNCH by ROI Consulting for Sage integration without having to drive in circles.
To win the race, you need the right equipment. DynoCams is in the business of providing racing-quality components for small-engine motorsports, as well as camshafts for NASCAR. While DynoCams prides itself in its online customer service, they also offer parts through authorized dealers and distributors across the country.
To keep inventory up-to-date and organized across all those purchasing options, DynoCams turned to ROI Consulting. Using IN-SYNCH Sage integration, DynoCams was able to link its Clearnine ecommerce platform easily with its Sage 100 ERP and data from third-party resellers. This integration gives them a clear view of what parts they have where and what might need to be reordered soon so they and their customers can stay in the race.

Skunk2 continues to innovate with new engine components and camshafts with proprietary technologies.
Skunk2 products are available on their own website, as well as at authorized dealers across North and Central America. Using IN-SYNCH, Skunk2 maintains inventory across their own Magento ecommerce store as well as what goes out to dealers. When that happens, everybody wins.
