PierVantage signs deal with West Indies boatyard

Grenada Marine in the West Indies selected PierVantage for Boatyards as its technology platform.

Grenada Marine owner Jason Fletcher decided to upgrade to PierVantage after seeing a demonstration at the American Boat Builders and Repairers Association’s annual conference.

“I wanted better control and visibility over my financial operations, and PierVantage gave me that and a lot more,” Fletcher said in a statement. “With over 80 employees working on many different projects, I needed better control over the parts for each project and the labor for each task. PierVantage helps us to track the flow of parts and materials from the initial estimating stages all the way through the billing process.”
