App Builder Targets Boat Builders

Press Release
Wednesday, February 20, 2013

Apptology, mobile application providers, succcessfully develop & market 8 mobile apps for boat dealers across the U.S.

These applications are built on Apptology’s ReadyBuilt mobile application platform that are customized specifically for small and medium-sized businesses, providing a marketing platform that boat dealers can use to better communicate with, and service their customers.

Apptology, based in northern California, has been creating mobile applications for over two years with a development team of over 100 software engineers. Kevin Fitzgerald, Vice President of Sales for Apptology is a ski boat enthusiast and spent some time training Ski Nautique dealers in Florida about the benefits of these mobile applications.

“Our ReadyBuilt mobile app platform is a perfect vehicle for boating dealers to market their sales and service offering, especially considering that many of these dealers do not have marketing personnel or departments,” said Fitzgerald. He adds, “These apps are essentially another sales channel for the dealers and are loaded with useful tools customers can use on and off the water, giving dealers the ability to interact with customers in a way they never have before.”

Apptology’s ReadyBuilt mobile app specifically designed for water sport dealers is a marketing platform to alert customers to special events or promotional offers by utilizing the app’s push notification feature which has a 97% read rate. Dealers can also provide access to local recreational sites, weather, water conditions, and other useful tools such as social forums, photo galleries, QR Code scanner, and geo-based coupons. Customers can send photos of themselves enjoying a great day on the water and have those photos posted in the gallery, and they can RSVP to events and obtain discounts sent by the dealer directly from the app.

One of the first dealers to adopt a ReadyBuilt mobile app as a marketing platform was Superior Boat Repair & Sales, (SBRS) located in northern California and is the exclusive Nautique dealer in the greater Sacramento area. Bob Bense, President of SBRS explains, “A mobile app is a way to offer our customers a cutting edge technology that is associated with my dealership and the Nautique brand, and I wanted to create a way for customers to easily interact with me and the store while using their phones.”
