Overview

Marina Blue was founded in late 2012 and hosted in Moulin Sur Premises, a Beach Resort in Cote des Arcadins Haiti. Marina Blue Haiti’s mission to encourage all sorts of watersports and land-based activities to help promote Haiti as a touristic and pleasurable destination in the Cote Des Arcadins region. By offering PADI scuba diving, snorkeling excursions, Fishing Charters and visits to historic and scenic locations on land, visitors will have the ability to discover Haiti’s natural splendors “above and below” and retain and share a positive experience from their visit.

Outerpreneur became actively involved in the project in 2014.  By that time, there were no booking systems in place. We implemented a new booking system along with a new website with CMS provided by the booking solution. 4 years later, MBH, became a 5 star PADI resort, with a fully equipped diving shop, overnight trips to other destinations on the island, freediving courses, and much more.

Above & Below

Software solution No. 1

A booking solution with Solid Design For Business

In the early days, bookings were made via phone without any sort of payment before the activity. Many cancelations or delays without any sort of engagement or compromise were happening at departure times, therefore wasting time and affecting management logistics. We introduced a solution to Marina Blue. An easy that that accepted international and national credit cards, something not very easy to find in Haiti. In addition to this, the software gave us a clear view of the bookings calendar and this was also connected to other selling partners as booking, Viator or Expedia. The solution also provided a CMS website builder, which was easy and intuitive.

Software solution No. 2

Accounting solution

Accounting is a key important factor for every business. Quickbooks offered a cloud solution for a multi-office business. Marina Blue administration was run from different points geographically talking.

Software solution No. 3

Logistigs & Management tech

Logistics is such an important factor when you run a multi-activity business. Moving nearly 15 staff, equipment, boats, rental equipment, lunch hours, broken equipment etc. Busy days were challenging. Having a general picture of assets was important. Trello is a collaboration tool that organizes your projects into boards. In one glance, Trello tells you what’s being worked on, who’s working on what, and where something is in a process.

Software solution No. 4

Inventory Management & Database

Keeping track of inventory and record outings was also possible thanks to our solutions. We provided a database tool that is accessible from everywhere. Excellent for projects and managing organizations.
