NADA Guides announced the launch of its Web-based Marine Connect, which allows for the valuation, management and marketing of inventory from any device.

The NADA Guides Marine Connect program is a customizable Web-based product that is designed to provide instant access from any device to the most up-to-date NADA Guides pricing, options, specification information and tools for the valuation, management and marketing of marine inventory.

"NADA Guides Connect for Marine was designed to make the vehicle valuation process more efficient for industry professionals," said Lenny Sims, vice president of operations for NADA Guides, in a statement. "With easy access from anywhere on any device, printable window sticker options, customizing capabilities and much more, Connect is the answer for dealerships, credit unions and insurance companies looking to manage everything in one place."

The application provides engine and weight specification data, as well as year, manufacturer, model and option notes, which allows professionals to create accurate and detailed pricing reports.

Price reports are customizable with the ability to insert options and pricing, dealer add-ons with pricing, dealer addresses, special custom messages, logos and current specials, which can then be printed as official window stickers for showroom display.

Marine Connect provides NADA Guides used trade-in, average retail and high retail values for marine vehicles from 1977-2011.
