PierVantage unveils new functionality features


Cloud-based marine management system PierVantage is rolling out what it says are powerful capabilities designed to help boatyards and boatbuilders manage their projects and workforce more efficiently in its newest functionality release.

“As our customers experience the transformational impact that PierVantage has on the efficiency of their business, they continue to refine their critical processes and request additional capabilities that we implement several times each year,” CEO Navroze Eduljee said in a statement.

These are the major new functionality highlights in what is the company’s second major release for 2014.

• Project management module: This module gives project managers integrated Gantt Charts, providing a quick visual representation of project start and end dates for individual projects, as well as across projects, to plan for resource conflicts. Managers can drill down to specific tasks and make project date adjustments as often as needed.

• Workforce scheduling module: This module lets managers schedule hours across multiple jobs for multiple employees over multiple days within a single screen. Managers can make informed scheduling decisions with the ability to view estimated and actual hours for each task, as well as available and scheduled hours for each employee.

PierVantage said it continues to gain momentum in the boatyard and boatbuilding space.

“We are signing up customers at a nice clip right now,” vice president of sales and marketing Greg Miller said. “New customers are telling us they not only want PierVantage to help them run their business, they need PierVantage because they desire better tools to keep up with the demand of their product and services. We are filling a need out there for a modern cloud-based software solution they can access anywhere, anytime.”
