YachtWorld signs deal with YachtCloser

Internet yacht brokerage portal YachtWorld.com announced it entered into a strategic alliance with YachtCloser, a provider of Web-based contract management solutions.

The alliance will bring a contract management solution to BoatWizard, the inventory management tool for YachtWorld. Broker members will be able to access a single, secure platform to manage their inventory, leads and now their listing and closing contracts. The alliance was formed to streamline the closing process, including the auto-fill of boat specifications directly from their inventory in BoatWizard.

"We are very excited to bring the YachtCloser application to BoatWizard,” Dominion Marine Media vice president and general manager Ian Atkins said in a statement. “Consumers increasingly expect they can complete transactions online. We want our brokers to have the same ability to easily manage their listings, contracts and purchase documents to streamline the boat-buying process.”

Brokers, regardless of where they are, can create, edit and send contracts from any device with Internet access. Thanks to e-signature technology, all parties can sign contracts and return them instantly via the Internet, eliminating “fuzzy faxes” from the process, according to the companies.
