Chris relied on jotting down booking information on a desk calendar. In addition to being a tedious time-consuming strategy, manual entries are prone to errors and a small oversight could lead to a scheduling haywire.
Chris was in the United States Marine Corps in the 1990s. He later worked in the delivery service for Budweiser then shifted to working in car sales with Chrysler. When his friend inspired him to sell boats, Chris’ enthusiasm for boating was ignited. That little spark turned into a full-blown passion as Chris transitioned from selling boats to owning a boat dealership and transporting boats throughout the world. Chris is now focused on operating Jax Boat Rentals; a boat rental business in Jacksonville.
Before discovering CaptainPanel services, Chris managed all his bookings manually. Clients who found his business through the company’s website or through Facebook’s marketplace would contact him by phone or email for all booking inquiries. He used a large desk calendar to log a lot of information, including the details of his customers, the number of passengers, the date and time of the trip, and sensitive payment information.
The old school pen-and-paper method was time-consuming and left room for error. Chris had his share of double-booking blunders which created confusion for himself and for his customers equally. Chris chose to save his business from preventable mistakes and decided to use CaptainPanel. CaptainPanel reinvented the image of Jax Boat
Rentals with a new website. Additionally, with the online calendar, online booking system, and the payment gateway, CaptainPanel gave Chris the tools to organize his booking and payments and protect his customers’ sensitive details.
