My-Villages opens new Florida headquarters

Publish date:

Online business management company My-Villages opened a new, larger headquarters in West Palm Beach, Fla.

The move to the new office at 401 South Dixie is the result of growing demand for My-Villages’ marine products — The Boat Village, The Boat Village Pro and DockMaster — in the last 12 months.

The DockMaster hosted service user base grew 132 percent in 2014 and My-Villages expects even larger growth this year. At the same time, the company said, it more than doubled the number of boat service businesses that are utilizing The Boat Village Pro to coordinate service online with their customers.

More than 3,000 boat owners are now utilizing The Boat Village, with most of that growth occurring in 2014. The product became available in late 2013.

“When we started My-Villages in 2012, our vision was to simplify boat maintenance for owners and help boat service professionals better care for their existing customers,” My-Villages founder and CEO Kevin Hutchinson said in a statement.

“The rapidly growing demand for our software has demonstrated an acute need for better local service coordination, customer communication, task sharing and business automation,” he said. “As we addressed the strong demand and made several new hires, it was clear we needed to make a move to a larger headquarters.”
