California based Shipyard, Marina Shipyard recently signed with PierVantage for Boat Yards. Marina Shipyard is a progressive company that has been servicing customers on the west coast since 1964 and grown to an over 8000 returning customer portfolio today.

Marina Shipyard joins other highly respected boat yards such as Front Street Shipyard in Maine, Derecktor Shipyard in NY, Philbrook’s Boatyard in Sidney, BC, Grenada Marine in the West Indies, and Zimmerman Marine in MD/VA/NC, in their choice to use PierVantage to help overcome key business challenges like accurately tracking true costs associated with each project and managing their just-in-time inventory purchasing process.

“We put off changing software for a long time but knew one of these days it was time to take the next step,” said Cyndee Allen, General Manager of Marina Shipyard. “PierVantage was specifically built to run the shipyard more efficiently. Now we can easily and quickly track the progress and costs of our projects, run operational and financial reports with real time data, and bill customers whenever and from wherever we want,” said Allen.
