The system, which incorporates the latest in mobile phone technology, allows boat owners to manage and pay for their electricity and water services via their mobile phone, tablet or any other web enabled device. The technology included within BerthMaster Online comprises components from industry leaders including Vodafone, Omron and Worldpay, and provides both the marina operator and boat owner with significant extra levels of control over electricity and water services at every berth. Rolec operations director, Holly Brown, commented: “We have always been confident that the new BerthMaster Online system would be a success and are delighted with how well received it has been in the marina industry. This new system is yet another world first from Rolec and represents a huge step forward in marina services management and control.” Over recent months BerthMaster has been installed at several marinas in countries that include Greece, Saudi Arabia, Cyprus, Bahrain, the Seychelles and Dubai. According to Brown, further projects are in the pipeline. BerthMaster Online enables boat owners to use their mobile phones to: • Switch on/off of their own electricity and water services, eliminating the necessity to visit the marina office. • Gain 24/7 access to their own electricity and water accounts from any location in the world. • Pay in advance or on account for their electricity and water services via the BerthMaster Online WorldPay payment platform using either Visa, MasterCard, Amex or PayPal. • Receive email alerts in the event of loss of power or an unauthorised electrical disconnection at their boat. Haslar Marina in Portsmouth, UK - the first to adopt BerthMaster Online - is described by Rolec as the world’s first mobile phone operated marina. Michael Prideaux, managing director of Haslar owner Dean & Reddyhoff Marinas Ltd, explained the decision to invest in the system: “We wanted to choose a utility system that put the customer experience right at the very heart of the design of the system,” he said. “We chose BerthMaster Online for two reasons. Firstly, what we were looking for was a really robust physical infrastructure. The second thing we were looking for was a system that we would confidently know would last us for the next 20 years.” “Because technology is moving so quickly we wanted to take a leap ahead and go for the most advanced metering system that was available to us,” he continued. “The other key feature, of course, is that there is no need to read the meters ever again. The system has been so well designed. It is so slick that it is transforming both the customer experience and the operational side for us.” “I am very confident that this will be the “go-to” product for the next ten years. I can’t see anything else on the market that is available getting close to it.” E: 58 - July/August 2017
