Southport, Conn. – Boat Fix, the 24/7 marine customer service company, announced today it has signed an agreement with Vision Marine Technologies (VMT) to deliver a custom, white-labeled telematics solution to be included with all model year 2021 electric boats.
Driven by innovation, VMT designs and manufactures handcrafted, high-performance, environmentally friendly, electric recreational powerboats; with the goal of fighting the problem of waterway pollution with solutions that offer zero pollution, zero emission, waveless water and a noiseless environment. Boat Fix will supply VMT telematics hardware and monitoring software with an accompanying app, along with its industry-leading 24/7 customer support and services. Under the terms of the agreement, Boat Fix will also provide a solution to all VMT’s OEM customers through 2023. The telematics technology is intended to monitor the health of the vessel, as well as the battery consumption of the ePropulsion electric motors installed on specific vessels in production.
“In the realm of electric boat manufacturers, few companies offer the quality and performance of a Vision electric vessel,” said Alastair Crawford, Founder, Boat Fix. “One of the unique challenges of electric propulsion is the charge remaining in the battery is dependent on speed and therefore, unlike a fuel gauge, it is hard to know how much range you have left. In addition to providing our standard vessel monitoring, we have created a solution that will make sure users have the runtime to get where they’re going so they can enjoy the quiet and serenity of an electric boat.”
“After our initial discussions with the Boat Fix team, we were wildly impressed,” said Alexandre Mongeon, President, Vision Marine Technologies. “They had the right capabilities and were able to provide us with a highly-tailored solution in a very short time and at an affordable price. We are positive our customers will be extremely pleased with the added value a Boat Fix telematics system will bring to their ownership experience.”
Offering the industry’s only 24/7 customer support, Boat Fix provides a vital, yet cost-effective tool for the industry with a compelling ROI in every market sector. Available in customizable, white-label programs for volume industry partners, Boat Fix offers unrivaled after-sales support, as well as a shared, tiered monitoring service, so all partners – whether a boat manufacturer, dealership, underwriter, service center or marina – can monitor customers worldwide, around the clock. The Boat Fix app can also be customized to reflect a customer’s branding, providing a ready-made, fully-functioning solution at a fraction of the cost of developing one from scratch.
