Edson International launched a mobile version of its marine website.

Edson's new mobile site automatically detects the use of a mobile device and displays a simple, easy-to-navigate menu for the most popular areas of the full site, including: sailboat and powerboat product catalogs, steering systems and wheels, pumps and electronics mounts.

In addition, customers can easily connect to customer support pages, where they can download and view hundreds of boat-specific steering data sheets, instruction manuals, installation instructions and parts lists.

“Over the past couple of years we've noticed a large increase in the number of our customers accessing the Edson site from their boats on mobile devices,” marine sales manager Chuck Gilchrest said in a statement. “A mobile site now allows them to easily and quickly get the information they need to service, upgrade and maintain their steering systems and other Edson products while at the dock.”
