Member News: Manchester Marine Implements PierVantage For Boat Yards

PierVantage adds another big name to its growing customer list as Manchester Marine in Manchester, Massachusetts implements PierVantage for Boat Yards.

Adam Cooper, General Manager of Manchester Marine is excited to upgrade to a sophisticated, cloud-based business management solution specifically built for the marine industry.

“PierVantage for Boat Yards is by far the most user friendly software on the market. From work order creation to billing to analyzing an employee’s efficiency, this system does it all and is simple to use. We have crew members that are not computer savvy and are zipping through the screens as if they had been doing it for years,” said Adam Cooper.

“Before PierVantage it would take an experienced, computer savvy individual an average of 45 minutes to create a winterization work order. With PierVantage it literally takes 5 minutes to have the work order created and on the floor. Being able to create work orders quickly is going to allow the Service Managers to get out and sell service rather than be stuck behind a desk painfully creating work orders,” said Cooper.

Steve Brox, the majority shareholder of Manchester Marine has been a key supporter of PierVantage since inception. Manchester Marine prides itself on maintaining a tradition of quality workmanship, integrity, and customer service while incorporating new technologies and building techniques.

“As one of the yards that provided input into the initial design of PierVantage, our two companies have enjoyed a long working relationship,” said Navroze Eduljee, founder and CEO of CorVant, creators of PierVantage. “Just a few weeks after their smooth implementation process, Adam (General Manager) and the team at Manchester Marine are already reaping the significant benefits of PierVantage. We are excited about having Manchester Marine join our long list of reputable and forward thinking boat yards,” said Eduljee.

As the marine industry continues to gain momentum, the PierVantage team continues to see a growing demand for a business management solution that is easy to implement and easy to use, backed by a team that delivers on its promises.

PierVantage is the leading cloud based business management solution designed specifically for the marine industry. Boat Yards use PierVantage to simplify job estimation, work management and invoicing, reduce their inventory carrying costs and increase the efficiency and profitability of their operation. Cloud based means the solution is easy to implement, offers tremendous reliability and security compared to on-premise systems and future upgrades are FREE and require no effort on your part. The solution is backed by a highly responsive and knowledgeable support team.
