I have a client who provides yacht/boat management and maintenance services across 3 marina's.

They currently use SAGE 50 alongside a bespoke portal system for project costing and service management and this lacks integration.

They like Xero and have looked at things like Workflow max with a view to full integration but the project costing/quoting/invoicing/timesheet operations are seen as not flexible enough.

They are considering developing their 'portal' further to enhance Xero integration but this is expensive and has the associated risks of maitaining a bespoke solution.

Are there any other Xero+app solutions that are working well for others in this field?

I saw simPRO - anyone used this?

I note that the website does not show pricing which is always a concern.

Is standard modular pricing available as a cost indication?

You might also look at Quickbooks desktop 2019. It does everything you want with classes for sites and project costing for individual jobs with fantastically simple reporting.

Aqilla will do all of this and more, it's a cloud based mid market ERP solution with project costing built in, plus it is already tried and tested in the maritime industry.

Thank you for the hard lazy sell Aquilla so prob about 100 pm all in. How many 'maritime' users do you have then?

Synergist isn't particularly strong for service management, but it is quite flexible in general compared to Workflow Max for project management/costing.

Synergist does integrate with most popular accounting systems including Xero, Sage 50, Sage 200, Kashflow, Quickbooks, Aqilla etc.

As I say, we may not be a good fit for service management and we don't have any maritime users that I'm aware of.

Anyway our web site is

Have you/your client checked out the apps on the marketplace.

simPRO is slick and could work really well for your client.
