Why Data Management Is Vital to Marinas

Updated: Apr 3

Data – collection, verifying it is accurate, and using it to make business decisions are vital to marinas and all businesses!

“I can only show you the door, you’re the one that has to walk through it.” This is a famous quote from Morpheus in The Matrix movie. He is right! A software solution can help you collect and manage your data. However, you must ensure your staff is collecting the correct data and entering it correctly and that you can utilize the data to make essential business decisions. So, while we can show you the door, you’re the one that has to walk through it.

You need a solution that will help you and your staff collect and organize the data so that it can be used in your daily operations and can be analyzed for business decisions.

Technology can help you and your staff collect vital data and use it to make essential business decisions.

  1. Scribble Software's solutions are built around the marina industry. Therefore, the data in our solutions directly relates to your business needs.

  2. Specific data about your customers help you reach out to them when you need to contact them. Whether about a payment or an emergency, the data is there when you need it the most. Do you need a customer’s phone number, email address, and emergency contact information? It is just a click away!

  3. Marketing purposes. The data you collect and generate can help you make critical marketing decisions.

  4. Need to scale down or up in a particular part of your business? Look at what the data in Scribble Software’s solutions tell you.

  5. Want to know how one property compares to another property? MARINAGO Office data and reports can help you with that!

  6. Vessel data, including insurance expiration dates and more, help you make important business and insurance decisions.

  7. Point-of-Sale transaction data directly ties into your accounting platform, helping you see your profits and losses. It also helps with inventory decisions and filing sales taxes for the items you sell in your store.

  8. Service and work order data help you streamline complicated ongoing processes, including estimates, work orders, jobs, payments, invoices, tech time, and inventory – all at your fingertips. You don’t have to search through papers and folders. That data only takes seconds for you to look up and know the exact phase or step you and your customer is at this time.

  9. Space (or slip) management - Do you know the number of empty or full spaces off the top of your head? You don’t need to generate this answer from brain power. Scribble Software’s space/slip management solutions provide these answers.

  10. Reservations – Who is checking in today, tomorrow, or next week? Scribble’s solutions can give you those answers immediately.

  11. Want to see a color-coded map of your marina based on filters for specific decisions? No worries! Select the options you want and immediately see the map on the screen.

  12. Want your customers to be able to see their data and update it when they have a chance at 2 am? MARINAGO Office Customer Portal has you covered.
