Rollick Outdoor, an affinity buying program and enterprise lead management solution for the RV, marine, powersports and industrial equipment industries, announces it now reaches 25 million employees at 2,000 organizations.
In less than a year, Rollick has established Certified Dealer Network partnerships in 40 states. These partnerships provide Rollick employees with special pricing on purchases of RVs, motorcycles, ATVs, side by sides, jet skis and snowmobiles, as well as accessories and apparel. To become certified, dealers must agree to participate in Rollick's buying experience, where shoppers receive details on the price of the vehicle, including all fees and any available incentives.
"Employee benefit platforms provide America's best companies with programs to reward hard-working employees with buying perks on a wide array of products and services," Rollick CEO Bernie Brenner says. "Outdoor recreation was a missing category on all of these platforms until Rollick came along. Now, employees can not only save on their marine, powersports and RV purchases, but they also get matched with dealers in their local area that are committed to a transparent buying process."
