Superyacht management software developer LEADiNiUS has announced the addition of MooringSpot to its flagship I.T. MOVES IT software. MooringSpot will be the first app included in the LEADiNiUS MarketPlace – a forum for promoting services and exchanging information. The MooringSpot app allows users to find and secure berths in the South of France.

According to I.T. MOVES IT founder and CEO Pascal Wiscour-Conter, IT is already shaping the way we manage yachts.

"This requires a smart choice - thorough and ahead-of-the curve planning of technologies", Wiscour-Conter explained. "It's very similar to the piping and cabling on a megayacht - increasingly complex and requiring huge experience and know-how on how to use cutting-edge technologies to build generic solutions that remain simple to use, yet highly sophisticated and with a long-term vision."

LEADiNiUS comes as a SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) which means: no complicated software installation, no hardware constraints, no maintenance or upgrading plans. No hidden costs either, since you just pay as you use and for what you use.

MooringSpot inceptor Peter Murray-Kerr declared that over the past decades IT and the web have transformed how we work, and the yachting industry is no exception. "Back in the early 1990s the only way to know which yacht you wanted to buy was to contact your favourite brokerage agency, meet up to be shown photos and images, and then select which yachts were of interest to you. Nowadays, people go through this process in just a few clicks", Murray-Kerr explained. "Sourcing information is no longer an issue, as long as it is accessible online. Therefore, these fundamental innovations we find in our lives are also bound to revolutionise the way owners and the entire yachting industry relate to their common passion."

"The progress of operating online and mobile enables us to rationalise time and money spent, while structuring our processes", Murray-Kerr added. "It is not going to be obvious for all of us who have been used to aging habits which were once standard, but with the gains achieved, using these new tricks is going to become inevitable and increase the quality of service we offer our clients."

Monaco Marine is also part of the LEADiNiUS MarketPlace, offering its full range of services.
