EZ Waves is the only online charter booking service for fishing, sailing, kayaking and all other water-based activities that helps streamline the booking process with live scheduling. It allows guests to book directly onto captains’ schedules and be on the water in as little as three hours. The new platform has quickly and successfully become the first boat charter reservation system to give travelers instant access to nearly 500 captains in more than 55 cities around the world.
EZ Waves was recently selected as one of five companies to participate in the Stadia Sports Accelerator, a business development accelerator for sports startups that provides investment capital as well as mentoring and networking. The company beat out 170 applicants and 10 finalists to grab a spot in the spring 2016 class, allowing it to benefit from Stadia’s specific curriculum for business strategy, international distribution, partnerships and investor relations.
For captains, EZ Waves’ technology-based management system handles the entire business of boating – from marketing and enhancing consumer awareness, to scheduling and accounting for captains and guides. Before EZ Waves, many captains ran their charters from handwritten calendars and would often lose opportunities for trips because of missed phone calls while out on the water. Now, captains are provided real-time notifications through the EZ Waves Companion App. Captains have reported up to a 30% increase in sales due to online availability.
For consumers, EZ Waves provides a clear, easy-to-navigate website from which boating excursions and tours can be booked for a range of water activities. With same-day reservation options, EZ Waves makes it simple for guests and captains to instantly book sailing lessons, offshore fishing trips, sunset cruises, eco tours, historical tours and more. EZ Waves even offers luxurious yacht charters for special getaways and excursions in an elegant setting for special occasions – from intimate wedding receptions to corporate events.
Additionally, EZ Waves has several exciting announcements in the pipeline for this winter and early 2017 that will greatly enhance the complete users’ experience. EZ waves is on a continual search to upgrade that experience for all parties involved with its software solutions.
