AUSTIN, TX – December 14, 2016 – Vyze, a leader in cloud-based financial technology solutions for retailers and manufacturers, is proud to expand its relationship with ICON Health & Fitness, the world’s largest manufacturer and distributor of exercise equipment. ICON has chosen Vyze to present more consumer financing solutions to customers shopping online, empowering them to better serve a broader customer base.
Vyze recently launched its enterprise eCommerce solution that integrates seamlessly into ICON’s existing eCommerce platform, and the digital shopping carts of ICON’s leading online brands, including NordicTrack and Proform. With the single integration solution to Vyze, ICON has access to multiple lenders across the credit spectrum to serve all its customer demographics, and the technology and financing partners needed to support continuous growth.
“In Vyze, we see a partner with the technology to support all of our brands today,” explained Ryan Dunkley, ICON’s vice president of marketing. “We also see a partner that has the ability to scale with ICON as we grow and serve all of our customers, no matter how they shop now and will shop in the future.”
The solution is already driving results for the fitness equipment retailer. With the Vyze ecommerce solution, ICON has seen a 50% increase in its online finance volume year over year.
“We are eager to make healthy lifestyle tools and financing solutions even more accessible and affordable for ICON’s customers,” said Vyze CEO Keith Nealon. “This solution has the ability to expand ICON sales across additional channels while continuing to connect customers to the right financing options.”
Earlier this year, Vyze and ICON launched a call center solution through which ICON call center agents help customers apply for financing via Vyze’s Financing Center to create positive customer experiences during the application process. That solution’s success led ICON to explore additional ways to flexibly offer financing to customers through the convenience of an online channel.
“Just as ICON remains committed to helping customers live healthier lifestyles, Vyze remains committed to helping consumers unlock their potential,” said Nealon. “We look forward to continuing to work and support ICON as their business objectives change and evolve.”
Vyze is a leading cloud-based financial technology company for businesses. By combining technology, a comprehensive lending supply, and support under one roof, Vyze is able to deliver businesses more satisfying financing experiences for their customers, wherever and whenever they shop.
