MINNEAPOLIS – Marine Dealer Technologies, a web-based tech company offering cutting-edge tools for dealers, has signed on as a Partner Member of the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas.

"With the rapid expansion of technology over the past few years, the marine industry is experiencing somewhat of a shift in finding tools that offer a competitive edge,” says Kris Thayer, President of MDT. "We want everyone in this industry to succeed, and for that to happen we have to work smarter. Supporting the tools the association offers, while creating innovative digital tools ourselves is an approach that will certainly result in a well-equipped industry.”

MDT is a company that focuses on creating web-based solutions for dealers. The company’s goal has always been dealer centric—help those who sell and buy boats to make the process cleaner, simpler, and more efficient. Their newest product, the Digital Showroom Manager is one of a number of tools that helps fulfill this goal.

"MDT has a strong desire to support the marine industry and its dealers, a key objective of the MRAA for more than 40 years,” says Matt Gruhn, President of the MRAA. "Thayer, a dealer himself for more than 25 years, understands the full spectrum of dynamics in the showroom and in the boating business at large, and puts that experience to work in his technology company. We're excited to welcome them to MRAA Membership.”
