Philbrook’s Boat Yard Selects PierVantage for Boatyards Software

Philbrook's Aerial PicPhilbrook’s Boat Yard, a repair, refit and custom boat builder near Victoria BC, Canada has made the decision to upgrade their business management solution to PierVantage for Boat Yards. Philbrook’s is regularly regarded as the premier full service boatyard in the Pacific Northwest and is a strong cornerstone for PierVantage in the region.

Philbrook’s joins other highly respected boat yards and boat builders such as GUNBOAT, Lyman Morse Boat Building Company, Front Street Shipyard, Schooner Creek Boat Works, US Watercraft and Derecktor Shipyards in their choice to use PierVantage to help overcome key business challenges like accurately tracking true costs associated with each project and managing their just-in-time inventory purchasing process.

“Before selecting PierVantage, we were using more than four different systems to run our business, had massive duplication of efforts entering data into multiple systems, and our productivity was being held back by our outdated technology solution,” said Jamie Hansen, Project Manager of Philbrook’s Boat Yard.  “Moving to a modern platform like PierVantage will give us better control over our inventory, provide us with the data we need to manage our various locations, divisions and departments, and reward our employees in a timely fashion using the productivity reports available.  Best of all, the PierVantage team knows our business, supports dozens of businesses just like ours, and has been there to answer our questions every step of the way,” said Hansen.

The PierVantage team is fielding inquiries for its products all over the map, and now has customers from as far out west as Victoria BC, Canada to Nova Scotia, the Great Lakes, all the way down to Grenada, West Indies.

“We have been out there for five years now and it is exciting to see the acceleration in our growth,” said Navroze Eduljee, founder and CEO of CorVant, creators of PierVantage. “Having the opportunity to work with one of the biggest and most respected boat yards in the Pacific Northwest is a privilege. Our implementation team headed by Mike Frayler is working closely with the Philbrook’s Team to ensure a smooth transition from their current platform to PierVantage for Boat Yards,” said Eduljee.
