Reservation App in expansion mode US-based Dockwa, a software start-up in Newport, RI, has launched a cloud-based reservation management platform that allows marinas, yacht clubs and shipyards to process dock and mooring reservation requests with inventory management. MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE Scribble expands software options As part of its drive to bring emerging technology to marina management, Scribble Software has introduced three new products: E-Signature Contracts; marinaGo mobile POS; and RentalH20. It takes just 15 minutes to set up a marina on the Dockwa platform and the company claims that marinas from Maine to the Bahamas have found that having their data centralised and organised through the reservation process can boost business. ‘Marinas have increased their operational efficiency and, as a result, increased revenue by as much as 17%, with one marina reporting its highest first-month The E-Signature Contracts App provides businesses with a fast, easy and effective way to deliver interactive digital contracts directly to their customer’s inbox. Utilising state-ofthe-art electronic signature services, customers can easily interact and sign contracts at will. The E-Signature service also allows marinas and service yards to automatically track document history, send reminders and receive signed contracts swiftly and securely. marinaGo mobile POS is ideal for fuel dock and mobile sales as it facilitates cash, credit card and house account sales transactions using mobile phones or tablets with full access to your customer list. With support for real-time credit card processing and house account ticket charges, the product takes the complete sales activity away from the counter sales clerk and out to wherever it is needed. Rental H20 is a completely new asset rental management solution designed specifically with marinas in mind. Ideal for the rental management of boats and guest accommodation, it streamlines the booking process from initial reservation to completion. The intuitive ‘drag and drop’ design makes it very easy to manage all types of bookings. To support the growth of its business, Scribble has recently opened a new operations centre in Mechanicsville, Virginia. Contact Scribble in the USA on email: revenue in history,’ the company says. In addition to increasing marina efficiency, Dockwa makes boating more accessible to a technically savvy demographic and Dockwa’s marinafocused travel content also connects boaters to marinas and harbours that are off the beaten track. Boaters are able to securely reserve dock space or a mooring directly from their phone or computer. The marina then confirms the reservation, collects payment and deposits the customer’s information into an intelligent database with a single click. After receiving an overwhelmingly enthusiastic response with its current footprint, Dockwa plans to expand its offering to include premium marina marketing, operations and analytics features, and continue its rapid expansion throughout North America and to international waters.
