PierVantage adds Canadian boatyard as a client


Philbrook’s Boat Yard, a repair, refit and custom boatbuilder near Victoria, British Columbia, chose PierVantage for Boat Yards as a business management tool.

Philbrook’s joins boatyards and boatbuilders such as Gunboat, Lyman Morse Boat Building Co., Front Street Shipyard, Schooner Creek Boat Works, US Watercraft and Derecktor Shipyards in their choice to use PierVantage.

“Before selecting PierVantage, we were using more than four different systems to run our business, had massive duplication of efforts entering data into multiple systems and our productivity was being held back by our outdated technology solution,” Philbrook’s Boat Yard project manager Jamie Hansen said in a statement.

“Moving to a modern platform like PierVantage will give us better control over our inventory, provide us with the data we need to manage our various locations, divisions and departments and reward our employees in a timely fashion, using the productivity reports available,” he said. “Best of all, the PierVantage team knows our business, supports dozens of businesses just like ours and has been there to answer our questions every step of the way.”

PierVantage has customers from as far west as Victoria to Nova Scotia, the Great Lakes and down to Grenada, West Indies.
