Dockwa Milestone: Marina Reservation Platform Achieves 250 Marina Partners

Industry-leading boating app gains momentum throughout Eastern Seaboard, sets sites on expansion

CAMBRIDGE, MA – April 2, 2015 – Dockwa, Inc., an award-winning software company that has revolutionized the leisure boating and marina industry through a seamless reservation platform, announced today the successful partnering with 250 marinas, yacht clubs, and shipyards throughout the United States, Bahamas, and Caribbean.

 

"Many marinas' high seasons are about to begin, so it's a huge win for us that they're eager to get on board, said Dockwa CEO and Co-founder Mike Milello. "During a time when marina managers are typically maxed out with projects such as splashing boats, launching docks and revamping club houses, it's fantastic that they're also quickly catching on and signing up for Dockwa to make the most of their season."

 

Dockwa is the only platform to provide a seamless reservation experience for both marinas and boaters, which decreases booking complications and increases customer satisfaction and marina revenue. With this state-of-the-art marina reservation technology, marinas are able to increase productivity; by being better able to manage reservation requests and communicate with guests inside the Dockwa app, marina managers and their staff have more time to focus on improvements, operational efficiency, event planning, and other projects.

 

With expansion steadily underway throughout the Northeast, Chesapeake, Florida and the Bahamas, Dockwa’s ever-growing footprint provides boaters with an abundance of choices for their nautical getaways. Dockwa plans on capitalizing on the recent influx of testimonials and word of mouth from their existing customers, and doubling efforts to bring on more partners. Said Milello, "With this 250-partner milestone achieved, we have our sights set on expanding to destinations including the Midwest’s Great Lakes and the West Coast."
