Swell Advantage and Snag-A-Slip Team Up to Better Serve Marinas and Waterfronts
Swell Advantage Ltd., the world’s most advanced marina and waterfront management software, teams up with the leading boat slip reservation platform, Snag-A-Slip.
Halifax, Nova Scotia. (November 29, 2021) – Swell Advantage and Snag-A-Slip announced an integration and partnership to better service marinas and waterfronts across the US and Canada. With the recreational boating industry experiencing unprecedented growth and increased competition between marinas, marina managers and owners are looking for modern tools to help manage this new generation of boaters. Snag-A-Slip allows boaters to seamlessly find and book available boat slips online, or via their mobile app. Connecting Snag-A-Slip to Swell Advantage, a cloud-based solution that handles on-site marina management, allows marina managers to provide boaters with a convenient, fully online reservation experience.
According to Swell CEO Iaian Archibald, Snag-A-Slip makes a lot of sense for marinas:
“People are used to using booking aggregators like Airbnb, Expedia and Priceline for travel. Boaters expect the same kinds of experiences when boating, and Snag-A-Slip does a great job of providing this service. A big part of what we do with our communication tools and boater self-serve is try to meet boaters with a level of service that they expect these days. The connection with Snag-A-Slip gets us a lot closer to this goal.”
Jennifer Leroux, the CEO of Snag-A-Slip, sees a lot of opportunity working with Swell Advantage:
“Building connections with leading marina management software systems like Swell Advantage helps Snag-A-Slip provide a seamless booking experience for boaters. When we saw Swell’s resource management framework and focus on marina customer service, we knew it would be a great match for Snag-A-Slip.
We’re also looking at the Canadian market as a great opportunity for Snag-A-Slip. Swell has marinas and key waterfronts using their system and this allows us to get into key locations in the country.”
Snag-A-Slip and Swell Advantage will continue to work together on integrating their products with the goal of helping marinas and waterfronts better serve their boaters.
