WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – My-Villages, the leading provider of online tools that connect local service businesses with their customers, today announced that the company has opened a new, larger headquarters in West Palm Beach, Fla. The move to the new office, located at 401 South Dixie, is the result of growing demand for My-Villages’ marine products, The Boat Village, The Boat Village Pro and DockMaster, in the last 12 months.
The Dockmaster hosted service user base grew 132% in 2014, and My-Villages expects even larger growth in 2015. At the same time, the company more than doubled the number of boat service businesses utilizing The Boat Village Pro to coordinate service online with their customers. And, over 3,000 boat owners are now utilizing The Boat Village, with most of that growth occurring in 2014 since the product became available in late 2013.
“When we started My-Villages in 2012, our vision was to simplify boat maintenance for owners, and help boat service professionals better care for their existing customers. The rapidly growing demand for our software has demonstrated an acute need for better local service coordination, customer communication, task sharing and business automation,” said Kevin Hutchinson, founder and CEO of My-Villages. “As we addressed the strong demand and made several new hires, it was clear we needed to make a move to a larger headquarters.”
