There’s optional equipment available to help make your selling process even easier. Hook up a UPC scanner, cash drawer and receipt printer to achieve the same professional look common in large retail outlets. Track inventory levels and pull sales history on any item in your store.

Repeat orders are a snap with the built in purchase order function. Evaluate sales, inventory levels and prior purchase quantities by vendor and be completely prepared for your next buying appointment.

POS is fully integrated with our credit card module and once the customer’s card is on file you may process payments without physically handling the card. You may also allow customers to run a tab by charge POS sales to their account. POS is truly a valuable add-on and a “must have” component for a busy marina. You can take a tour of it's features in the POS Module System Tour section.

Central Reporting Module

Boatslip Manager’s “Central Reporting Module” is a powerful tool that extends the core software to accommodate multi-marina enterprises. This system brings together all the great features and benefits of Boatslip Manager and makes them available on a portfolio wide basis.

Many critical reports that are present in Boatslip Manager can also be run on a system-wide, enterprise basis for multiple marinas or locations. The reports can be scheduled to run at a preset time allowing nightly or off-peak compiling of management reports.

In addition, the “Central Reporting Module” is perfect in a call center environment. Call attendants can quickly switch between locations providing site availability and pricing to callers. Bookings can be accepted at any marina in a snap!

Credit Card Module

Process credit card transactions within Boatslip Manager and save time — especially while taking reservations over the phone or when checking in a customer. By processing through our credit card module you can be assured the card is valid and approved before finalizing the customer’s bill. In addition the card information is securely kept on file so that future transaction can be paid for without physically handling the customer’s card a second time. This is ideal if you have repeat customers or you allow them to run a tab.

There are two options available with our credit card module. The first option is X-Charge. For this option you must use Global Payment Systems as your card processor however, X-Charge software is provided free. The second option is to stay with your current processor and buy PC-Charge software to act as a gateway between your processor and Boatslip Manager.

Software as a Service

What is Software as a Service?

Software as a Service (SaaS) is a business model for software delivery and deployment on the cloud. In the SaaS model, Boatslip Manager is offered over the Internet as a web service.

What Are The Advantages Of SaaS?

You no longer need to install and manage the application in your own environment. This shifts the responsibility to us, the hosting provider, which simplifies your in-house IT requirements. Our technicians will handle data backups and application updates.

What Do I Need To Connect?

You’ll be able to connect through high-speed internet from any location on almost any OS or tablet using Remote Desktop Protocol Software. (Satellite internet not recommended) If your computer(s) experience hardware failure, or are stolen, your data is safe off site on the SaaS servers. Your connection can then be setup on another computer within minutes and you’re back in business.

How Do I Get Started?

SaaS is billed as a low monthly fee based on 36-month contract plus a small one-time startup fee. If you are interested in finding out what Saas would cost for your marina, go to the “Quick Quote” link to get a price. If you’re already using Boatslip Manager and are interested in SaaS give us a call to receive special pricing.
