Those of you that have a sailboat or
motor boat have likely called into a marina to reserve a slip for a night or
two. You can image the dock master paging through note books and slips of
paper scattered on his desk.
Our Marina Reservations Software provides a
simple to use database to automate all aspects of marina reservations
management. The marina program tracks individual, group reservations and slip
booking assignments with a click of the mouse. Contracts printed on demand with all
financial calculations completed accurately. Customer and boat details are
retained and automatically summoned for entry into new reservation records.
Calculations based on duration of stay, length of boat, and electrical power are
all calculated automatically and printed on the slip rental contract.
The screen shots below will give you an overview of the key
functions automated with the marina reservations database. The first selling point is the overall user interface
demonstrating the use of a simple tabbed interface for all key functions - no
popup forms to open and close endlessly. These features save Dock Master
time and helps assure accurate data entry.
The main reservations screen manages repeat customers, individual reservations as well as group reservations. Slip available is dynamically
determined based on a priority order and availability based on reservation
dates. The ability to handle group reservations makes for quick entry and
shorter times on the phone with customers.
A single screen provides a complete overview of reservations over a four day
period. The dock master may print a report for any day to review
reservations on a slip by slip basis out on the dock. User may scroll left
or right to see past and future reservations.
Reports can be produced and labels generated for marketing
purposes. Repeat customers can be marketed through regular mail or emails.
