My-Villages adds four new clients

Online marine collaborative My-Villages added four Boat Village Innovation Partners in Florida and Massachusetts.

Boat Village Innovation Partners are companies that My-Villages said are committed to leveraging technology to improve how they connect, communicate and collaborate with customers.

The latest additions are Boat Yard Services, of West Palm Beach, Fla.; North Atlantic Marine Services, of Wareham, Mass.; and Whiticar Boat Works Inc. and Yacht Concierge USA, both of Stuart, Fla.

“Today’s customers are used to having instant access to information and seamless digital communication — and this technology provides exactly that,” My-Villages founder and CEO Kevin Hutchinson said in a statement. “It helps service yards streamline their work flow and provide boat owners exactly what they want.”

The four yards join a growing list of marine firms, including The Hinckley Company, that have partnered with My-Villages and signed on as Boat Village Innovation Partners.

The Innovation Partner program draws together marine businesses that want to use technology to streamline communications with customers and increase their business. To do so, partner companies agree to use The Boat Village, a Web and mobile application that allows marine professionals to radically change how they interact with customers.
