Client Needs

The recreational boating industry is a multi-billion dollar industry, providing goods and services to a wide variety of clients. If taken care of, a boat may last its user a lifetime, but there’s one part that is sure to need replacing: seats. Comfort and durability are critical, and the process of selecting and installing a new seat can make or break a boater’s experience with a seat manufacturer. A particular manufacturer of high-quality seats sought to develop documentation to help ensure proper adoption and customer satisfaction. Recognizing the critical need for professional communication skillsets, the company reached out to Essential Data for help with developing an owner’s manual for their high-end boat seats.
