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.

"Our studies show that most of the failed businesses lacked a strong service commitment. Therefore, when boat sales dropped off they had no support system in place to survive the economic downturn," Allied president and founder Joe De Marco said in a statement. "We can offer that support system."
