SailMe founders were working like skippers in the yacht charter market, and after years of experience on charter boats, they decided to buy a yacht. The start of the charter business in 2015 was with one quite old boat, but it was the beginning of the bareboat charter part of the company and since then, SailMe is continuously increasing fleet.
Their 13 boats are based on Tenerife, Ibiza, and Martinique. SailMe team consists of up to 10 people, half of them are technical staff, and the others are accountant and sales department, social media manager, and booking department. Since they are a growing company, one of their main objectives is to constantly extend infrastructure to cover future needs. Ivan started with one quite old boat, but now his company has 13 boats and one of the newest fleets in Ibiza. SailMe team has a great passion for sailing. All of them are sailors, and given that valuable experience, they perfectly understand every client's needs. That is a crucial point in maintaining a high level of clients satisfaction. SailMe future plans are to expand and become an international company. In 2022 they plan to open a base in Greece, probably Mikonos or Patras. The long-term goal for years ahead is to keep on growing without losing in quality.
SailMe has been using Booking Manager from the very beginning of their business since they had one boat. Their statistics show that 85 percent of their clients are going through MMK. SailMe team uses many Booking Manager features as instruments to check the market and compare prices with other companies.
They find Revenue planning very useful because of its functionality to monitor market demand for a certain type of boats. Also, SailMe checks the market on a daily basis and adjust fleet prices by the current situation. It helps them sell more and faster. Besides Revenue planning, the most beneficial features in their everyday work are generating price quotes and Mailchimp connection to send customized campaigns. SailMe team uses Booking Manager as their only booking system on a daily basis.
