Two longtime marine industry software companies have decided to work together after functioning on a somewhat competitive basis.

Wallace Software Design of Riverside, R.I., and Huggins Outboard Computer Programs of Raleigh, N.C., are announcing the compatibility of their offerings for aftermarket parts cross-reference.

More than 100 aftermarket companies make parts that fit OEM marine engines. For example, Sierra, SEI, GLM, and CDI make parts that fit Yamaha, Mercury, Volvo and Evinrude engines.

Wallace and Huggins could each invest in research and development to provide these data to their customers. Instead, they have entered into an agreement in which Huggins is providing the data to the Wallace customers that need it.

Wallace and Huggins say the agreement will benefit their customers because the companies strive for the best resulting products through additional research and collaboration.
