My-Villages signs deals with six new customers

Publish date:

My-Villages said six new marine customers have installed DockMaster business management software and 11 of My-Villiages’ existing customers have converted to the DockMaster-hosted Cloud.

“Boatyards, marinas and service companies are discovering that automation is the key to superior customer service and business growth,” My-Villages founder and CEO Kevin Hutchinson said in a statement.

“DockMaster 8.0 is fast to implement and flexible, allowing businesses to install on site or in the Cloud,” Hutchinson said. “It vastly simplifies everyday administrative tasks, allowing service pros to spend more time focusing on the customer and finding new ways to expand their businesses.”

DockMaster 8.0 automates the management of tasks such as inventory, service and repair, accounts payable, accounts receivable, customer relationship management, boat sales and transient reservations.

My-Villages hired additional support and training staff to meet its new clients’ needs across the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Southeast, Midwest and Western United States. New DockMaster customers include the city of Rock Island, Ill.; Tuppens Marine, Lake Worth, Fla.; Pelican Rest Marina, Galveston, Texas; Faro Blanco Marina, Marathon, Fla.; Campbell’s Boatyard, Oxford, Md.; and Bemidji Marine, Bemidji, Minn.

Existing DockMaster customers that have converted to the hosted Cloud solution include Calusa Island Marina, Goodland, Fla.; Fastboats, Pompano Beach, Fla.; and Oak Bluffs Marina in Oak Bluffs, Mass.

Traina Enterprises, including seven locations in Georgia, and the Fourwinds Resort in Bloomington, Ind., have also committed to the hosted Cloud solution.
