PierVantage signs Canadian boatbuilder

Dixon’s Marine Group 2000 signed with PierVantage for Boat Builders to help the Nova Scotia-based builder manage its expanding boatbuilding and service business.

“We are extremely fortunate to be building and servicing boats for our customers at a rate we have not seen in the last 15 years,” Dixon’s Marine Group 2000 general manager Janine Dixon said in a statement.

“We had a strong desire to upgrade to one solution that was built specifically for our business, and PierVantage offered that to us,” Dixon said. “The functionality is intuitive, the PierVantage team knows the boatbuilding business and the implementation process was extremely well organized. With PierVantage, I have a lot more confidence to bring our business to the next level.”

Dixon’s joins builders such as Gunboat, Lyman Morse, US Watercraft, Schooner Creek Boat Works, Derecktor Shipyard and Philbrook’s Boatyard in choosing to use PierVantage to help track the costs associated with each boat build and manage just-in-time inventory purchases.

“We are very happy to be working with the team at Dixon’s Marine Group 2000 Inc.,” CorVant operations director Greg Miller said. “It is great to see more and more boatbuilders adopting PierVantage to help manage their operations and financials.”
