Innovative collaboration to connect boats at factory, creating intelligent vessels and comprehensive software ecosystem. As a first step, all new boats will be equipped with the Frauscher App from delivery in spring 2024.
Frauscher, a renowned leader in handcrafted boats, and c.technology, a trailblazing Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider, are thrilled to announce a transformative collaboration that will reshape the future of the boating industry. By leveraging c.technology's cutting-edge cloud solutions, Frauscher will connect all boats directly at the factory, leading to the creation of intelligent boats and a fully comprehensive software system.
From spring 2024, Frauscher boat owners can use this software system to access a wide range of data via the dedicated Frauscher app (available for iOS and Android): location, logbook, the fill level of the tank or battery, and many others. The app can be accessed live and worldwide. On top of this, Frauscher boat owners can stay up-to-date with the Frauscher world, receiving the freshest news directly on their app. The Frauscher app is free for two years after delivery. It is not just for new customers; existing Frauscher boat owners can retrofit their Frauschers by installing their logbook app to enjoy all the app's functionalities.
