Mercury Marine has launched a new software management configurator for boatbuilders and dealers. Vessel Config guides customers through the configuration process to ensure they are ordering the right Mercury controls and rigging products for their boats.
“Vessel Config fundamentally changes the way customers interact with Mercury,” said John Buelow, Mercury Marine vice president of global category management. “It turns boatbuilders and dealers into virtual engineers, giving them the ability to configure complex systems without assistance.”
With Vessel Config, boat builders and dealers now can prepare the right boat or engine for their customer with ease. Vessel Config guides customers through the configuration process to ensure they are ordering the right Mercury products for their boats, Buelow explained.
“Our customers have been ordering parts the same way for the past 30 years and its time for a change,” Buelow added. “This technology will fundamentally change the way we interact with our customers and how our customers interact with the end consumer. Customers have been asking for a better way to select parts and this is the first tool that easily explains what parts to order with what engine.”
Products included in Vessel Config include most of the controls and rigging portfolio of parts for new boats or re-power applications.
Engine families that can be configured are FourStroke 40 to 225 horsepower outboards, Verado L6 200-400R outboards, 115-150hp Pro XS and MerCruiser 4.5L/6.2L/8.2L sterndrives, inboards and tow sports engines.
