DockMaster is a collection of "best practices" that if used properly, will help grow your business and profits. We have implemented the program across our departments and it has made a tremendous difference in how well the workflow in every department as improved. We have also improved every faction of our business.

Pros

The program is very well thought out and intuitive. We can have users up and running in short order. If we do have a glitch or we don't understand something, it is handled in a very professional and efficient manner. In addition, the group and individual training sessions are awesome! I try to join all of them because it expands my knowledge and it reminds me of items I may forgotten. This is also the only program where you feel as though your ideas and suggestions count. They have an “Ideas” portal which is excellent. You can post any idea and it it is reviewed by DockMaster programmers and other users. Feels good even when your ideas can’t go forward because you know you are being listened to. Awesome program!

Cons

It doesn't make coffee or bring in donuts.

Pros

I love the hosted system since we no longer have to maintain a server. It makes it easy to work from home if necessary. Some of the features I like... the ability to email work orders or payment receipts etc.. We use WO estimate's which is a great feature. In AP invoicing I like the added feature of the sublet PO - which allows me to see any discrepancy with the cost on the WO compared to the cost of the vendor invoice. I like that you can have more than one customer maintenance file or WO open at the same time. The system allows for you to easily search customers by name, phone number or rack/slip location. Overall the software is easy to use, very reliable & again customer service is excellent. Our support agreement includes training which is good option for new employees.

Cons

I don't like to create reports, but generally I can work with one of the system reports to get the data I need.

Since 2003, Dockmaster has met our needs

Reviewed on 2018/02/15

Pros

It is easy to use and new employees can catch on quickly. Customer support is timely. As the company grows, the Hosted system has made adding locations a breeze.

Cons

Over the last two years, it appears that with each update, features and processes that have worked in the past are "broken". We have been using DM since 2003 and it is much improved but it is very frustrating to go to a feature that we have always utilized to find that it no longer works or gives the wrong information. It is bad accounting practice to find that prior period numbers change after an update.

Response from Valsoft

Thank you for being a part of our user community for over a decade. We are glad to hear that you are pleased with our cloud services and support teams. Each day we work to improve our processes and software to deliver a product that is better than the day before. We are working to focus our efforts with each new release to maximize features and functionality for our entire user base while also eliminating the occasional problems. There are times with all software applications when a deployment in the field delivers undesirable results in the specific way in which it is being used for a particular customer. It is our goal to minimize the frequency of those instances for DockMaster, and to architect the system in such a way that allows us to correct them quickly and accurately. Our energies are focused on serving each of our customers, and we appreciate your honesty and the opportunity to make the next decade+ better.

Pros

Use of the different sections is relatively easy for new people to pick up on which cuts down on the training needed in some departments

Cons

since we went to the cloud and after and update we constantly experience very slow movement within the system. Some time the help is a struggle, get new people there at MyTaskit or Dockmaster

Response from Valsoft

Hi Michele,

Thank you for your continued business over the many years. The ease of use is certainly one of the benefits of DockMaster, glad to hear your users find it easy to pick up. Our Cloud product has helped to reduce operating costs vs the on promise solutions and the tool continues to get better and quicker with updates. We always recommend checking the type of internet connections your ISP is providing as well. We are pleased DockMaster covers all the different areas of your business in one software solution, we¿ll keep making improvements to support your needs.

From using a few previous accounting packages that were not Marine specific to using this one is like Chalk and Cheese

Pros

It is very intuitive and having had a few years using it we are very happy with it . in addition the backup we receive is fantastic .

Cons

It takes time to understand that it is rigid in the fact one must follow the process step by step however this is also a benefit as cash and invoices are well controlled

Response from Valsoft

Jeff,

Thank you so much for the great review. There are a number of different step by step processes to help control cash and invoices. Have you tried using the workflows on the home screen? Once you set them up, you can click one button to automate the flow.

Thanks,

Team DockMaster
