PierVantage adds four boatyard clients

PierVantage, a cloud-based solution built specifically for boatyards, full-service marine facilities and boatbuilding operations, reached agreements with several operations.

So far this year the company has signed on with Kittery Point Yacht Yard, Concordia Co., Derecktor Shipyards and Schooner Creek Boat Works.

“We are very fortunate to have the opportunity to be working with some of the most respected boatyards and boatbuilding operations in the world,” Navroze Eduljee, CEO of CorVant, the creators of PierVantage, said in a statement. “The addition of Kittery Point Yacht Yard, Concordia, Derecktor Shipyards and Schooner Creek Boat Works is a sign that marine companies are feeling good about their growth prospects and looking to deploy new technology to improve their efficiency and productivity, increase profits and become more competitive. We are seeing a significant uptick in companies looking to upgrade from Quickbooks, DockMaster, WatchCaptain and other general accounting solutions.”

“I don’t think changing operating software platforms is something any business owner or its employees look forward to. It is difficult to change from something that is not broken. We wanted a platform whose architecture and flexibility was built for tomorrow,” Kittery Point Yacht Yard president Tom Allen said in a statement. “With PierVantage’s cloud-based solution, we don’t need to worry about evaluating our software platform every 10 years to keep up with the times — release updates are seamless. Though our decision to change was not, CorVant’s support team made the transition for us much easier than I anticipated. Their level of post-implementation service only affirmed our decision.”
