PierVantage™ continues to invest heavily in it’s platform, adding new functionality to support the growing Boat Building Market. The PierVantage team is pleased to announce the rollout of its Winter 2014 Release. This release includes several significant enhancements all designed to help boat builders manage their business more efficiently.
Boat Build Template
Project managers now have the ability to create a template for each model or boat the company builds. Within each template resides all of the necessary operations and tasks to complete the project. Each operation and task is pre-populated with all of the labor and materials required to complete each stage of the boat build.
When the customer approves the proposal, the build is accepted in the system and purchase requests are generated for all of the material needed for the project. As time and materials get posted to the project in real time, a Project Manager can quickly view the percentages of completion of any stage of the project and/or the overall project. This new functionality will give managers the visibility they need to prevent cost overruns and identify areas of the build that need to be better managed.
Furthermore, because PierVantage is an integrated solution with tremendous reporting capabilities, managers will have the ability to compare profit margins from one build to the next and one model to the next. This will give them insight into troubled areas of the build, enabling adjustments to be proactively made for future projects. The goal with this new functionality is to give you the tools you need to constantly improve efficiencies so you can keep costs low to either make more money or sell more boats (or both)!
The gritty details of this new functionality will be included in the Full Release notes coming out soon and please stay tuned for our Summer Release that will take Boat Builders Project Management to the next level including powerful graphical project and resource management capabilities.
