Alliance Management & Consulting Group of Canton, Ga., recently became the new owner of two industry service programs, the company announced.
MShop Software (now Marine Shop) is a marine service department software program that was developed in 1992 and specializes in small service-only repair shops. WatchCaptain Professional (now Management Pro) software specializes in small- to medium-sized marine businesses that require full management features with an accounting general ledger.
