Industry-leading boating app grows team to address expanding business volume
CAMBRIDGE, MA – February 3, 2016 – Dockwa, Inc., an award-winning software company that has revolutionized the leisure boating and marina industry through a seamless reservation platform, announced today the opening of a second office location in Cambridge, MA, the technology startup hub of the east coast.
"Dockwa has reached a point of growth that has far exceeded even our high expectations," said Dockwa CEO and Co-founder Mike Melillo. "Establishing the Cambridge office allows us to quickly scale up our engineering, marketing, and business development teams."
Adrian Mott, previously of Bedrock Data and HubSpot, joins the Dockwa team as VP of Marketing. "Adrian's business and marketing expertise, particularly in startups, will be a huge asset to Dockwa in this crucial growth period" added Melillo. "We're thrilled to have his knowledge, leadership, and energy on board."
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.
