Handcrafted boatbuilder, Frauscher, and Software-as-a-Service provider c.technology, (SaaS) provider, are to collaborate, combining tradition and innovation.
By using c.technology’s cloud solutions, Frauscher will connect all its boats directly at the factory, leading to the creation of intelligent boats and a comprehensive software system.
From spring 2024, Frauscher boat owners will be able to use the software system to access a wide range of data via the Frauscher app including location, logbook, the fill level of the tank or battery.
The app can be accessed live and worldwide and will be available for new builds and retrofits.
“The union of Frauscher’s exceptional boat craftsmanship and c.technology’s trailblazing cloud solutions heralds a new chapter in the world of intelligent boating.” said Florian Helmberger, director sales and marketing at Frauscher shipyard. “Customers will enjoy incredible benefits with the innovative Frauscher App as early as spring 2024 – and this is just the beginning.”
Christian Fehr, c.technology CEO and co-founder, added: “Our partnership will pave the way for connected high-quality boats and a seamless integration of technology and new mobility innovation.”
c.technology’s range of services includes data processing, powerful APIs, and the creation of monetisable add-on services accessible through mobile and web applications.
The companies say the collaboration will redefine the boating landscape, providing customers with an unparalleled experience on the water.
