Deep Impact Boats signs deal with PierVantage


Deep Impact Boats selected PierVantage to run its operations with its cloud-based business management solution for boatbuilders.

“Hands down, PierVantage was the clear choice for our growing business,” Deep Impact Boats chief marketing officer Randall Truesdale said in a statement. “We are looking forward to leveraging the technology to not only give our customers peace of mind, but to ensure that our production team is on top of everything pertaining to the customers’ build.”

Truesdale said PierVantage provides the company with the ability to customize a platform according to its needs.

Deep Impact Boats is the latest addition to PierVantage’s growing premier boatbuilder customer base.

“With numerous well-reputed boatbuilders using PierVantage to run their businesses, this segment represents a key area of focus for our platform,” said Navroze Eduljee, founder and CEO of CorVant, the creators of PierVantage.

“Our customer base now includes builders like Lyman Morse Boat Building Company, Gunboat International, Derecktor Shipyards, Front Street Shipyard, Zimmerman Marine and Schooner Creek Boatworks, just to name a few,” Eduljee said.

“We have specifically developed both operational and reporting capabilities in the areas of project management, purchasing and inventory management to meet the needs of boatbuilders and they love the fact that our platform continues to deliver new capabilities several times a year,” Eduljee said.

Working in conjunction with current customers, PierVantage plans to take the platform to the next level by adding graphical project and resource management modules.

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