'This is what we've been looking for!'

Published 04 décembre 2023

In 2024 owners of Burgess-managed yachts will have on-demand access to all reporting related to their asset through a dedicated dashboard

Burgess Yacht Management has created a secure owner's dashboard to give our owners immediate access to real-time information about their yacht.

Launching in the new year, the owner's dashboard is the realisation of a long-held a goal for Yacht Management. ‘I’m delighted to say that this is now a reality,’ says Burgess’ Head of Yacht Management, Ryan Green. 'This is the 360 Burgess service in action.'

With an intuitive design, the dashboard features clear tabs for simple navigation

‘It started as a Yacht Management tool but it has grown into all aspects of our offering,’ Green adds. ‘It embraces the full service we deliver for our clients and gives the owner direct visibility to how we’re assisting their yacht.

‘Instead of having to email a charter manager, yacht manager or accountant,’ Green continues, ‘owners of Burgess-managed yachts can now access a secure, centralised space where all of this information exists in an intuitive, easy-to-read format.’

Charter stats at your fingertips: Charter summary, charter bookings income, charter market report, yacht marketing

‘We’re always looking at how we can give an even better service to the owners of our charter fleet and we instantly saw the potential here,’ says Head of Charter, Ben Harwood. ‘While we want to give owners the full picture of how we’re managing their charter business, we don’t want to inundate them with emailed data. This dashboard allows them to find out as much or as little as they want, whenever they want.’

Real-time calendar: Charter bookings with embarkation and disembarkation ports, transit passages, shipyard periods, yacht shows and more

This much-anticipated desktop and mobile service, unique to Burgess, is a single place where Burgess owners can go to find out everything they need to know about their yacht. From finances to availability, crew to charter income, yacht location to industry news, everything is accessible in one place – and there’s more to come.

Your yacht's live location: Position on map, latitude and longitude, current speed and destination from the Marine Traffic AIS feed

‘This is the very first phase of development,’ said project leader Tash Trenear-Harvey, Yacht Management’s Business Operations Manager. ‘We’ve still got Retail Charter, Brokerage, Crew recruitment and Procurement to add in due course. It will grow a lot.’

Another key area of development is on the finance side. Having migrated to more stable, secure servers and updated to latest Zap dashboard and version 12 of Sage X3’s accounting software, there are big plans for more functionality.

Streamlined financial reporting: Current bank balance, accounts payable, financial reports, current expenditure, purchase invoice system, purchase orders

‘I would hope that in the next 6-12 months,’ said Alexander Dye, Head of Yacht Management Finance, ‘we can launch game-changing new products that our clients have been asking for, like purchase invoice automation, purchase orders and the ability to produce an insight reports dashboard out of Sage X3. The latest version provides transparent, auditable, ease-of-access reporting that can easily slide into a wider property or asset portfolio.’

News & reports: Captain’s comments, charter feedback, crew circulars, fleet briefings, industry news, market reports, operational reports, show news, yard visits

Designed to collate this information automatically, the dashboard brings together data held by Burgess to populate the relevant fields. ‘For our owners and captains,’ concludes Green, ‘we’re hoping there will be an element of ownership and engagement, almost at a social media level. This is about the best side of ownership.’
