    Forget about those loose slips of paper, Post-its and notes scratched on booking sheets. ProCharter is a systematic approach to Charter Reservations and Operations. It will help you organise forward bookings and the day to day management of your fleet.

    The system is designed to give the operator the right information quickly! The system is well organised and easy to get around. The Booking is presented on screen in a way that encourages the operator to be systematic in collecting customer requests. The screen presentation also prompts the operator to ask for other services that the customer may have overlooked. At all times the operator can see the status of all-important indicators relevant to the charter.

    One philosophy of the system is to record the entire transaction between the customer and your organisation. This means that at any point you can trace the dialogue and requests and your own actions to ensure a charter without hitches.

    Manage The Load Factors

    "Bums on seats" is the name of the game. Filling the seats need not cost any extra money. If you have the right information... and are willing to use it. If you know that a month is looking a little "light" you can take some remedial action so that your boats are not left at the mooring!

    This system is all about "filling those seats" with customers who will return and refer additional business.
