Navis 3 PMS - Property Management System
NAVIS 3 provides a complete and real-time view of all functional areas of a complex structure such as a marina, a shipyard and a business broker / charter.

It provides a complete set of features and tools for managing reservations, mooring contracts, for assignment of berths and all other "properties" provided to the company, and for billing, giving vital information needed to develop more effective business strategies and better customer service.

For every type of "property", berth, yard and shed, parking places and boxes, housing and commercial units, warehouses, NAVIS 3 is capable of carrying out operations for reservations, transit, mooring and lease contracts, sale or long-term assignment (long rent), management delegation, brokerage and accommodation.

Graphical tools such as the port layout and the planning chart assist the operator in the daily management of berth assignment, ensuring better optimization and thus enhanced profitability of the work. The plans are now created or modified autonomously by the operators, defining colors representing the state of occupation and graphic features. The new chart guarantees a high level of interactivity, making it possible to expand, shrink and move the contracts simply by dragging the mouse.

The operators on the quay with a tablet perform their tasks of monitoring the docks and sending all the information collected, such as arrivals and departures, hauling, launch and work in progress, to the office via wi-fi directly in NAVIS 3.

NAVIS 3 is equipped with its own booking-engine that allows you to easily post in the company website and dedicated portals - information that has already been processed in the software such as commercial offers (e.g., availability of berths and their prices) - and receive reservations from the web, also in prepaid mode with online payments. Even more, it is possible to set up a user password protected customer area where estimates, mooring contracts, bank statements and invoices can be posted, becoming available for online payments.

Through NAVIS 3 you can monitor all aspects of the ownership structures of every "property", easily draw the chart relating to the operating expenses (expense rate table) and perform the massive billing quickly and effectively. The charts are first created by NAVIS 3 taking into account all the changes in the ownership occurring in the time period considered, as well as defining the amounts that each owner will have to pay on the basis of thousandths, actions, square meters, class of each "property".

It is possible to manage "static" price lists to define rates for sales and rentals through the traditional manner or apply the "dynamic pricing" model by defining the real-time rates from time to time depending on several variables, including the saturation level of the port at the time of the request. This is the model currently in use in the hotel industry.

NAVIS is able to monitor the entire storage and maintenance procedure of the boats from the definition of a quote to the planning of operations and the issuance of an invoice, as well as the attachment of a detailed economic and financial analysis report of the costs incurred and profitability of the various processes.

  • Quote with two detail levels;
  • Work order (quote confirmed – the work passes to its operational phase);
  • Orders divided by boatyard sector;
  • Planning of work and optimization of boatyard;
  • Daily worksheet for worker and order;
  • Internal and external labor – quantification of daily hours by calculating the hourly cost;
  • Equipment management, stock and inventories, maximizing stock value;
  • Unloading stock materials and loading orders;
  • Management of the direct sales (retail) of stock materials;
  • Monitoring costs incurred for each order and quantification of profit margins;
  • Variance between estimates and total final costs;
  • Tracking of ongoing work and upcoming scheduled deliveries;
  • Management of estimated hours and total final hours for each job;
  • Order status: orders pending, in progress, completed, suspended.
NAVIS envisages the possibility of developing a quote for boatyard works, with varying levels of detail depending on the requirements at the time. For each item line, it is possible to develop a new analysis level that defines the hours of labor required, third party materials and services expected to be used, obtaining the total line amount from the sum of items entered. Once the offer is confirmed, the procedure automatically generates an order for the boatyard works, necessary for the execution and planning of the operations.

Many utility features allow for the search of quotes already prepared for the same customer or for a specific intervention in the historical archive, thereby obtaining support information in comparison to cases similar to the one concerned.

Work orders make it possible to identify and charge for items managed on a total balance basis of the costs incurred and charged for each individual job. The application, in fact, provides the instruments for precise control of the costs and revenue and the progress of the work for the orders. Starting from the details items managed on a final balance basis, a work sheet is generated that records the hours of labor employed, materials used and taken from the warehouse and any external third party services. For each of these entries the procedure calculates the cost and revenue values, highlighting the positive margin accrued or any deviation from the amount estimated. It is possible to immediately set the amount of time necessary for the execution of individual maintenance jobs, thus scheduling the work and appropriating materials for the activities to be performed, particularly in order to avoid temporal overlaps with other ongoing activities. For each work order it is possible to establish a progress status by setting the payment terms agreed to with the customer. Such terms will then fuel the general payment schedule and specifically that of the individual customer. It is possible to produce payment reminders, in the case of late payments, from the payment schedule.

This form addresses the management problems of the materials for use in boatyard works and for retail sale. Some features:

  • Broad option to search and select items for partial description, by original, alternative or equivalent code, by vendor code and merchandise category;
  • Management of multiple warehouses;
  • Breakdown by merchandise category;
  • Description in a foreign language;
  • Alternative, equivalent codes;
  • Replacement codes;
  • Brand management;
  • Location management;
  • Bar codes and bar code readers management;
  • Infinite sale price lists management;
  • Management of total stock on hand for each warehouse;
  • Minimum and maximum stock management;
  • Supplier orders management;
  • Special codes for special items managed directly on order;
  • Calculation of the value of final stock on hand at the time of year-end financial statements with the Fifo/Lifo system.

Broker Dealer Charter

Navis 3 Broker/Dealer/Charter
NAVIS 3 simplifies and automates the boat sales and rental activities both in updating profiles regarding their "fleet" and in posting offerings in the company website and dedicated portals, as well as in easily preparing estimates.

NAVIS 3 at a glance means:
  • simplifying the updating process;
  • posting and synchronizing data on the web;
  • standardizing and sharing information among different brokers;
  • visibility in the web world in general and in especially in our portal;
  • extremely easy to compile estimates.
  • In the event of a completed sale, the estimate is immediately transformed into an order (contract) and then the payment method is defined and billing deadlines are set. The accounting module even provides for the entering and production of invoices and related payments.

Through this module it is possible to assign to a vessel, owned by a company or by other boat owners, all the characteristics concerning rental: vessel type (bareboat or crew boat), price list, availability schedule, related services, ports of origin and destination, inventories. Then an offer can be posted on the web through the web-booking engine NAVIS 3, both on the company website and in portals dedicated to charters, and once the offer has been accepted, an order (contract) can be entered with definition of all the related services and then billing and payments can be issued.

At any time you can have an overview of the vessels of all the ship companies and check the state of the fleets (rented, free, unavailable, out of service) daily.

Through the shipyard module you can manage all the maintenance and work on the vessels as well as the winter storage.

About us

Company details

NAVIS 3, a full suite of products and IT services for the management of marinas, boatyards, brokers, dealers and charters, is the result of 20 years of experience in the nautical sector with over 150 companies as customers. Today NAVIS is renewed and comes in the 3.0 version.

Completely re-engineered with the latest technologies to be intuitively easy and fast, NAVIS 3 adds new functionalities and enables sector companies to promote their business in a simple and effective way in the internet world.

Its flexible hybrid structure allows it to be installed and used, depending on mobility needs, in either a CLOUD environment or in a corporate network, ensuring data security, exposing to the web only the necessary information to carry out web-marketing and booking on-line while providing value-added services on the Internet.

The software access mode is that of Software as a Service - SaaS, which does not imply a high initial economic investment but a bimonthly all inclusive fee (software updates, online support), fully amortized in the accrual year.

The NAVIS software was developed in the late '90s by Gruppo Orologio in Caorle (VENETO) for the management of the marina and the Agency's estate. Subsequently, Gruppo Orologio set up the software house VIS Srl for the design, development and marketing of software solutions tailored for the nautical and tourist industries. 

Today NAVIS is operating in more than 150 Marinas and Boatyards such as the Port of Rome, the Marinas in Rimini, Pescara, Varazze, Aregai, Gruppo Valdettaro, and Nautica Casarola. The experience gained over time in such a large number of marinas and boatyard companies make VIS Srl proud to be the only company of its type within the industry. 

VIS Srl today has its core business geared in creating professional IT solutions for companies in the nautical sector and it is specialized in the design and development of custom IT solutions that adapt to the different business models and specific nature of the companies in the industry. 

VIS Srl is continuously growing thanks to the increasing success of their solutions with users and it constantly invests in research and development in order to provide innovative solutions. Since the late 90s, one of the merits of VIS Srl is to have made an important contribution in computerizing the nautical sector and making it more competitive. 

VIS Srl consists of system designers, system analysts, programmers, web designers, process consultants, help-desk assistants: motivated people who have given form to the company's success over the years.

Thanks to the years of know-how acquired in addressing the multitude of demanding customer needs and the collaboration of highly professional external consultants, VIS Srl is able to provide highly effective support for the start-up of new construction marinas, regarding legislation, organization and management processes.

The start-up of the software is guaranteed by our staff with an initial training session of at least three days at the company offices followed by online training.
