Member News: Deep Impact Boats selects PierVantage

After an exhaustive search, Miami based premier boat builder Deep Impact Boats selects PierVantage to run its operations. PierVantage for Boat Builders is the industry’s only true cloud based business management solution built specifically for boat builders.

“Hands down, PierVantage was the clear choice for our growing business. We are looking forward to leveraging the technology to not only give our customers peace of mind but to ensure that our production team is on top of everything pertaining to the customers build, said Randall Truesdale, CMO of Deep Impact Boats. The other solutions we looked at just didn’t match our needs. I am a technologist by trade, so I know the importance of having the right solution to support the daily activities in our business. All businesses are not created equal — with this being said, PierVantage provides us the ability to customize the platform according to our specific needs. When I saw the first demo, I knew right away, I wanted, and more importantly, I needed PierVantage to support our growing brand,” said Truesdale.

Deep Impact Boats is the latest addition to PierVantage’s growing premier Boat Builder customer base.

“With numerous well-reputed Boat Builders using PierVantage to run their businesses, this segment represents a key area of focus for our platform, said Navroze Eduljee, founder and CEO of CorVant, creators of PierVantage. Our customer base now includes builders like Lyman Morse Boat Building Company, Gunboat International, Derecktor Shipyards, Front Street Shipyard, Zimmerman Marine and Schooner Creek Boatworks just to name a few. We have specifically developed both operational and reporting capabilities in the areas of project management, purchasing and inventory management to meet the needs of boat builders, and they love the fact that our platform continues to deliver new capabilities several times a year, said Eduljee.”

Working in conjunction with its current customers, the PierVantage team plans to take the platform to the next level by adding powerful graphical project and resource management modules. “The enhanced Project Management functionality that will be released as a part of our Summer 2014 Release will really set PierVantage apart and deliver tremendous value for both Boatyards and Boat Builders,” said Mike Frayler, Director of Operations for CorVant. “Our current customers are really excited and many of them have volunteered to be a part of the beta roll-out,” said Frayler.
