Ken Cook Co. of Milwaukee launched an online system that automates the owner’s manual requirement for exporting pleasure boats to the European Union.

BookBuilder allows companies to create, print, ship and deliver export-ready owner manuals. It customizes a detailed manual for each model, including schematics and layouts, and creates brand- and model-specific covers. The manual is translated into the required language, printed on demand, shipped and delivered in 24 to 48 hours.

Companies with multiple brands can upload data on each brand and model, then populate the fields that match specific export requirements.
