Powerful marina management tool
Many of Australia’s most successful marinas and yacht clubs have installed Micropower’s Marina Focus Marina Management System (MMS) to help them achieve greater operational efficiencies. Day-to-day operations are made easier by providing managers with relevant information and reducing duplication of tasks. Marina Focus MMS is a modern marina management system which is powerful enough to provide the tools to successfully manage the marina and maximise its revenue, yet is quick and easy to use.
Micropower’s products help streamline the daily operations of marinas and yacht clubs. Our Marina Focus MMS can eliminate unnecessary duplication of tasks by automating time-consuming processes such as invoicing and reminders for insurance and registration renewals. By having all of your information in one place, you are able to reduce time spent on administration with some marinas saving up to 20 hours per week and thereby reducing labour costs significantly.
Track boat movements
MMS covers all types of marina and yacht club operations and can be used for permanent agreements, casual bookings, berth management and boat movements. Boat movements are tracked on a graphical interface that links to customer records, boat records, financial information and more. There is also an easy-to-use diary that all staff can access so that everyone can see at a glance what is happening on any given day.
Better bottom line
Increasing revenue and improving cash flow is an important function in any business and Marina Focus MMS can help you do this by providing timely and relevant reports. You can better manage occupancy of berths and maximise revenue through the scheduling feature. You can also compare actual with potential revenue by both berth type and berth. This will enable you to better manage your cash flow and forecast revenue more accurately. The ability to check that agreements have been paid means you keep your debtors under control and results in an enhanced bottom line. The pricing analysis feature automatically checks the correct prices are being charged for each berth, reducing the possibility of incorrect charges due to human error.
Managers and owners retain control by having relevant information provided in a timely manner. Because Marina Focus MMS integrates with other solutions such as Financials, Membership and Point of Sale, Micropower can provide the complete solution for managing your marina or yacht club.
Managing service yard jobs
Micropower’s Marina Focus Service Yard Management System (SYMS) is designed to make the day-to-day management of commercial boat yards more efficient and cost effective. This product has been developed as a result of feedback received from customers wanting a solution that would accurately and efficiently manage the costing, quoting, tracking and invoicing of service yard jobs.
Easily manage daily operations
Marina Focus SYMS is an extension to our Marina Focus MMS and can be purchased together or as an optional extra if you already have the marina management system. SYMS creates standard job and task templates, generates a work queue to easily manage the daily operations of a service yard, has simple-to-use functionality to produce Estimates, Work Orders and Job Sheets as well as provides estimates on jobs.
Marina Focus SYMS also captures actual labour and materials used on individual tasks, creates invoices from jobs carried out, seamlessly posts invoices to Micropower Financials and has export capabilities to other financial packages. Like MMS, Marina Focus SYMS supports a graphical scheduler to intuitively allow real time scheduling of haul out machines and cradles. It enables efficient usage of valuable hauling machines and cradles, maintains a list of pending jobs to substitute for ‘no shows’ and generates reminders for recurring jobs such as antifouling which is repeated every year.
Micropower’s Marina Focus MMS and SYMS combined provide the complete solution for managing marinas with commercial boat yards. Because they automatically synchronise with other Micropower solutions, Micropower is able to provide a first rate, enterprise solution for yacht clubs and marinas.
Micropower’s Payroll Solution will automatically calculate your employees’ wages – all you have to know is what hours your staff worked. Because all of the relevant state and federal awards have been pre-installed, the system automatically calculates any relevant penalties and deductions such as uniforms and meals.
Because Micropower’s Financial Solution integrates smoothly with our other Solutions such as Membership, Point of Sale and HR Solutions, your staff can save time and minimise errors, thereby improving your bottom line.
Managing your members
Micropower’s Membership Solutions are designed to give you the competitive edge. They provide not only a central data base for all of your members’ details, they are also a powerful tool for managing customer relationships. As all of the information is kept in one place, you save time in entering and amending data.
Encouraging repeat business
By using Micropower’s Gaming Interface, you can simplify the management of your member’s loyalty points so that they can earn and redeem points through both your Point of Sale outlets and Gaming. By making it easier for members to accrue points, you are more likely to encourage repeat business and increased loyalty.
By having a central repository for all of your membership data, you are better equipped to treat your members as individuals and to increase your membership base. As Micropower’s Membership Solution integrates with other solutions such as Point of Sale, Marketing and Financials Solution, it is a potent business device.

Communicating with your members
Micropower’s Club Mail is a practical marketing tool that enables you to send targeted, meaningful messages to your members. Email marketing gives you the ability to send professionally designed messages to all or a select group of your members. This can be about upcoming golf competitions, special events at your restaurant or to advise of upcoming course work. Of course, your legal requirements are covered with members always given the option to opt out of these messages.
Micropower’s solutions mean that you can deliver the right message to the right person at exactly the right time, ensuring you get the most impact for your marketing dollar.
Intelligent marketing solutions
Micropower has provided marketing solutions to many of Australia’s most successful social and sporting clubs. Our system delivers incremental revenue by installing highly functional, easy-to-use software and providing all of the training and support you need to make the most of your investment. Club Mail enables you to send targeted, meaningful messages to all or a select group of your members.
Regular email newsletters are the perfect method for staying in touch with your members as well as being the ideal vehicle for advertising upcoming events and promotions.
Increased loyalty = increased revenue
Loyalty points are an increasingly popular method to encourage members to use the club’s facilities more regularly. With Micropower’s system, you are able to decide how points are allocated and control how they are redeemed. Redemption of points can be done at any Point of Sale terminal around the club. By combining loyalty points with other Marketing Solutions offered by Micropower, you will see increased revenue and improved profitability almost immediately.
“Members Only” access
By incorporating Micropower’s Club Link into your web design, you can have “members only” pages where you can feature exclusive content such as newsletters, special member events and more. This can also be a way of reducing your administrative tasks as members will have the ability to perform important tasks such as updating details and making membership fee payments online.
Micropower’s Marketing solutions, when used in conjunction with our other solutions, such as Membership and Financials, can not only improve communications with your members but can also reduce your administrative tasks, saving your staff time and your organisation money.
World Wide Web
Micropower’s Marketing Solutions offer a range of options to help Club Managers communicate with their members. A strong internet presence is a must for building and maintaining your membership base. It is a vital link between a club and its members, as well as an important means of attracting new business to other areas of the club.
Micropower’s Club Space Website Solution is the ultimate marketing device. Our websites are professionally developed and designed so that visitors to your site can easily find the information they need. With Micropower’s Content Management System, Club Space, it is easy to update your website by adding and removing images, updating text and creating photo galleries to keep your site fresh and interesting.
You can also promote special events on your website. These promotions are easily managed by scheduling in advance what dates you want your events to be shown and the system does the rest.
Managing events with ease
Micropower’s Functions Booking Solution contains a range of useful features to help you manage functions and events at your club. The system has the ability to simplify your bookings and quotes, better allocate staff and automate your invoicing. Save time in processing quotes and improve the accuracy of your bookings with our easy to use function diary. This can be viewed by all staff, giving anyone the ability to see current availability at a glance and reducing the chances of a double booking.
You can also easily create task lists for yourself or allocate tasks to other employees, thus enhancing your ability to effectively manage staff members. Through the diary, you can easily amend an event time or duplicate events over a number of days. Functions are flagged in the diary to show a different colour depending on the status, e.g. enquiry, tentative, confirmed or cancelled.
Invoicing is made easier as Micropower’s Function Bookings allow you to charge customers in a number of ways such as at a flat rate or charged to individual members. Plus, if you have Micropower’s Financials Solutions, the amounts for each function item are automatically inputted into the general ledger saving staff time and reducing the possibility of error.
It also integrates with our Point of Sale Solutions so that deposits and other charges made at the point of sale can be posted to the event account and will be reflected on the invoice.
Our comprehensive reporting feature means you have timely and accurate information always at your fingertips. At the time of installation, you can customise your stationery so that you produce professional looking proposals. The reporting function also enables you to produce internal running sheets, allocate tasks to staff and manage jobs such as following up deposits due. A full audit trail is maintained so that you can easily see who has made any changes in the system along the way.
Club Events Online Event Registration
With Club Events, members are able to login and register for any club based events from the comfort of home. Club Events enhances the member experience by providing added convenience with event entry charges able to be automatically posted to a member’s account. Members receive email confirmation of any bookings made. It also helps the club’s event staff manage club functions with easy-to-use templates, reports and waitlist facilities.
Micropower’s Functions & Events Bookings Solutions ticks all the boxes when it comes to managing functions and events at golf clubs.

Managing your most valuable resources
Human Resource Management is one of the biggest assets and expenses in any business. Having a comprehensive and accurate reporting system is the key to managing your employees in a cost effective manner. Micropower’s Human Resource Management Solution provides an easy-to-use, central repository for all of your employee records, including training needs, leave entitlements and health records.
Because this system has individual logins and passwords for managers, sensitive information is kept confidential. This means that you can store all of the information you previously held in separate files in one, secure location electronically.
Payroll & rostering made easy
Human Resource Management also integrates with our Rostering and Payroll solutions, thereby offering a one-stop-shop for managing your employees. Micropower’s Payroll Solution will automatically calculate your employees’ wages – all you have to know is what hours your staff worked.
Because all of the relevant state and federal awards have been pre-installed, the system automatically calculates any relevant penalties and deductions for uniforms and meals. In addition, because payroll and rostering integrate, you can easily measure any variances and better manage your club’s biggest expense. You only have to administer one employee record for ease of management and to reduce the possibility of errors.
Our rostering saves time in generating rosters by automating much of the process. It ensures you always have staff with relevant qualifications, e.g. RSA, on site and creates a fairer system by distributing rosters evenly and according to availability. Micropower’s fully integrated solution can be used as a key tool to help progress staff through your business to reduce staff turnover and wage expenses and, because you are only entering the information once, you save time and money.
Identify your members
The search facility allows you to create selective groups based on a wide range of criteria such as age, gender, join date, player handicap or occupation. These can then be used in conjunction with Micropower’s Club Mail as a powerful marketing tool. You can also identify members as part of corporate or family groups and link these together for billing and mailing purposes. Financial postings can be made to individual member accounts or to the family or corporate account.
The individual member accounts display the other linked members. Another important feature of Micropower’s Membership Solution is that it allows you to keep notes and history for each member. Documents can be uploaded and retrieved as required. This information is retained in the database even if a member resigns, and can be readily retrieved should they become a financial member again.
Keeping information secure
Because the system has individual logins and passwords for managers, sensitive information is kept confidential. You control what level of access individual staff members have to the records. We have also a comprehensive range of reports available such as occupation hours and termination reports, along with letter templates such as certificate of service and completion of probation. This means that you can store all of the information you previously held in separate files in one, secure location electronically. By having all of this information in one place, all of your legal requirements are covered.
For a fully functional system, Micropower’s Human Resource Solution integrates with our Payroll and Rostering systems so, because you are only entering the information once, you reduce the chances of human error whilst saving time and money.
