Maine boatyard signs up with PierVantage


Gamage Shipyard in Bristol, Maine, recently chose PierVantage for Boat Yards to help with business management, abandoning its former software.

“We have been thinking about moving to a better platform for a few years now, and after meeting with the PierVantage team we gained comfort with the implementation/conversion process, which seemed to be holding us back from taking the plunge,” Gamage Shipyard general manager Steve Morris said in a statement.

PierVantage said the shipyard is so spread out that having an integrated solution in the cloud made a lot of sense to keep operational and financial data flowing quickly.

“We implemented PierVantage in April, and we are already seeing significant value in PierVantage from an operational control perspective,”Morris said. “When our technicians enter their hours, notes and materials they use on projects throughout the day directly into the system, it is pretty powerful to monitor and track job costs [in] real time.”

“Gamage Shipyard is one of the oldest and most respected yards on the Maine coast,” said Navroze Eduljee, founder and CEO of CorVant, creators of PierVantage. “The Gamage team is very methodical in their approach to servicing boats for their customers that come back year after year.”
