Technology Integration Makes It Easy to Choose and Book Marinas Online or via Mobile App
NEWPORT, RI – July 27, 2016 – Dockwa, Inc., the marina reservation platform which connects boaters to marinas online and by app has developed a single online ecosystem for marina reviews. This product integration allows boaters to review marinas after a marina reservation is booked through the Dockwa platform.
Mike Melillo, CEO at Dockwa, said: “We're excited to have engineered a system to bring boaters and marinas an enhanced ability to submit reviews, as well as provide broader visibility into a marina's quality of service.”
Boaters can now contribute reviews of their marina experience on Dockwa sister site Marinas.com, which will be automatically shared on the Dockwa app and website. The integrated online reviews inform boaters when they are making a decision on which marinas to book, while providing marinas valuable feedback in order to improve the boater experience and ultimately increase revenue.
"Dockwa is the only company that gets the boating reservation model right for both marinas and boaters. No one else comes close,” said Jeffrey Siegel, Co-Founder of ActiveCaptain.
Dockwa recently announced a $2 million round of seed funding, sourced through 70 percent of its pre-existing investors.
