CorVant LLC, makers of the cloud-based marine business management software PierVantage, said the Chicago Yacht Works has selected PierVantage for Boatyards to help manage its growing marine business.

Chicago Yacht Works sits on the South Branch of the Chicago River and offers its customers more than 600 feet of river frontage and eight heated buildings.

“Chicago Yacht Works is very excited to integrate several separate software systems into one solution — PierVantage,” Rob Hannah, owner of Chicago Yacht Works, said in a statement.

“We have been very impressed with PierVantage’s capabilities, particularly for management of our service operations,” Hannah said. “The ability to have single-step functionality for estimating, parts ordering and generation of work orders will save us time and money. Most importantly, this conversion will enable us to better serve our customers by improving our timing, accuracy and overall customer service experience. PierVantage will improve our core sales, service and storage operations, as well as our educational and rental programs.”

“Our team is excited to work with Rob and the Chicago Yacht Works crew to implement PierVantage for Boatyards,” CorVant operations director Greg Miller said. “We have been looking to increase our presence with a progressive, prominent marine business in the Great Lakes region and Chicago Yacht Works affords us this opportunity.”

Chicago Yacht Works joins boatyards that include Front Street Shipyard in Maine, Derecktor Shipyard in New York, Philbrook’s Boatyard in Sidney, British Columbia, Diversified Yacht Services in Fort Myers, Fla., and Zimmerman Marine in Maryland, North Carolina and Virginia, in choosing to use PierVantage.
