South Texas Yacht Service signs deal with PierVantage


South Texas Yacht Service chose PierVantage to help run its growing business.

PierVantage for Boatyards is designed to help yards increase productivity and cut unnecessary expenses.

“We are located on the water in a hurricane zone,” South Texas Yacht Service LLC president Mark Grinstead said in a statement. “Every summer we have storm scares and are constantly having to evacuate, shut down and restart our servers. With PierVantage we no longer have to worry about losing our business data, nightly back-ups or server security. Our team has been extremely impressed with the professionalism of PierVantage's implementation and training process. We are looking forward to a long and productive relationship with the PierVantage team.”

South Texas Yacht Service upgrades from DockMaster and is the latest addition to PierVantage’s growing customer base.

“One of our primary objectives at CorVant is to partner with progressive marine businesses looking to modernize their technology to improve business results, like South Texas Yacht Service is,” said Navroze Eduljee, founder and CEO of CorVant, creators of PierVantage.

“There is no reason a business in 2014 should have to ‘get by’ with their legacy software. I applaud Mark for making the right decision to upgrade his business management solution, and our No. 1 priority now is to ensure he fully leverages PierVantage’s capabilities to grow his business.”

Working in conjunction with current customers, the PierVantage team plans to add graphical project and resource management modules.

“The enhanced project management functionality that will be released as a part of our summer 2014 release will really set PierVantage apart and deliver tremendous value for both boatyards and boat builders,” said Mike Frayler, director of operations for CorVant. “Our current customers are really excited and many of them have volunteered to be a part of the beta rollout.”
