Key Benefits and Features
Set-up is Customized
We realize no two marinas are alike so, over the years, we’ve created customized set-up procedures. First, we complete a pre-configuration and install some general parameters, such as rates, recurring charges, taxes, G/L labels and late fees. We will design a harbor graphic layout of the marina and set up the necessary data files to provide a view of the dock and slip locations as well as all associated properties, such as campground, cabins, dry storage, etc. with our interactive harbor graphics screen. In addition, TMP offers multiple mobile device applications, such as Dock Walk and Meter Reading that wirelessly sync remotely from your cell phone or tablet device to your main TMP software.
Installation Easily Conducted In-House
Depending on staff time, computer skills and bookkeeping experience, all that is typically needed is available in our detailed manual and installation instructions. Your in-house project manager follows the outlined steps to easily reconcile the old system with your new TMP system. After installation, typically you’ll simply need to enter your tenant data to get up and running. This makes TMP one of the most comprehensive marina management software programs in the marine industry.
Reporting for Every Need
It’s easy to generate key financial, accounting, and marina operations reports. From the main tenant/guest screens, generate reports associated with a specific tenant. From a menu option, generate journal reports, account receivable reports, occupancy/vacancy inventory reports and more. Capabilities beyond such standard reports are provided as well. Take command and let TMP totally control your marina operation and improve your staff’s overall efficiency.
Graphical Marina Interface
Just like a picture tells a thousand words, TMP’s harbor graphic easily enables marinas to manages thousands of slips. Click on a slip and view that slips history of occupants. TMP can be configured with up to eight separate graphic screens which can be used to manage slips, moorings, RV parks, building assets, dry storage and more. Each graphic includes standard and customizable color-coding schemes so operators can quickly view occupancy, search for availability, and allocate reservations – either by slip or linear foot.
Change the Date View range to the requested reservation date to show you the vacant slips. The (user defined) colors change automatically to reflect occupancy/vacancy. Click on a vacant slip and enter the guest’s information. It is that simple.
Billing & Accounting
The Marina Program is a full-featured Accounts Receivable and Data Management application. You can easily assign recurring charges to a tenant, charge guests, all transactions are posted to the proper accounts. You close your books monthly. The Marina Program provides an export facility to export summarized period data to text files, and QuickBooks, however QuickBooks is not required as TMP is a complete billing system.
The Marina Program prints out statements or interim statements (and invoices) on request. All monthly statements show any balance forward, aged balances, and transactions for the month with descriptive line-item descriptions to eliminate billing disputes. Statements can include a message defined by the Marina, insurance expiration notices if the boat’s insurance is going to expire within the next month. Late notices if payment of the statement is past due. Statements can be on preprinted forms or blank paper, or Post Cards. And all are easily emailed from TMP.
The Marina Program has accumulated just about every accounting related report imaginable since its inception. Each new version carries reports forward. In addition to general Journal reports. TMP includes Accounts Receivable reports such as the Aged Receivable Report, and Delinquency Report, various A/R list formats for Late Notices. If a specific reporting need cannot be found in TMP’s standard reports capabilities are provided so that external programs such as report writers can access the underlining TMP data or generate custom reports through Excel.
Multiple Location Support
From small private owner/operators to large multi-site ports, increasingly marina operators are banding together into groups or expanding their operations to multiple facilities. TMP provides multiple levels of multi-site control enabling all information to be shared, while still allowing per-marina management for keeping all information separate. TMP now offers the most comprehensive payment processing platform through Marina Payments. This advanced payment option is not available through competing marina management software programs, and it can save your marina thousands of dollars per month over traditional credit card processing.
Now stay in contact with your tenants via text messaging (SMS & MMS) for “real-time” communication. Add advanced email contact to your marketing package by integrating your database with TMP, all through the convenience of your computer cell phone or tablet.
NSS can assist you with data conversion from your current software system if needed. However, please remember that our support and training doesn’t start or end with installation: NSS offers day-to-day operations and executive level consulting. Affordable software maintenance and support programs are available.
Tenant and Guest Management
The Tenant and Guest windows are the main windows into all customer interactions. There is no need to bounce from screen to screen. From one central window marina operators have access to all customer account information including slip assignment, reservation history, recurring charges, billing activities, vessel codes, insurance information, wait list information, and meter utility usage. In addition, Nautical Software Solution understands that one customer may have multiple vessels or slip assignments. These cases are easily handled within The Marina Program.
Tenant and Guest History
History detail relating to a tenant or guest is available by clicking the history button. The history function shows history for the last few months or the last year. TMP can easily setup sub accounts with billing charged to the master tenant.
Lists and Reports
The Marina Program makes it easy to quickly generate account information relating to tenants or guest’s data can be generated for moorage contracts, phone directories, wait lists, balances due, occupancy reports. If a specific reporting need cannot be found in TMP’s standard reports, capabilities are provided so that external programs such as report writer can access TMP data. An optional marketing package is available that allows you to build your own contracts and documents that can be emailed in bulk or sent one at a time.
