Founded in 2015, Harba is an innovation-driven Danish company digitalising and connecting the world’s marinas and boaters.
The company has developed an award-winning mobile app for boaters – HarbaApp, a simple to use marina management software for harbour masters – HarbaMaster and various IoT hardware solutions to support both parties.
Harba has a mission to make boating and running marinas a breeze.
As of today (10/2/2018) Harba has partnered with more than 130 marinas across 13 countries, and received more than 9000 HarbaApp downloads worldwide.
Harba believes that going on sailing trips should be all about sailing, enjoying the sea breeze, discovering new places and docking at great marinas rather than wasting time sailing around the marina looking for a place to dock, finding out how to pay marina fees or searching for other facilities.
Therefore, the company has started developing powerful and at the same time extremely easy to use IT solutions for a niche leisure sailing industry eliminating currently obsolete and ineffective processes.
HarbaApp allows boaters to choose their preferred marina on an interactive sea map, make berth reservations in advance and/or pay for their berth spot once they have docked. The app is free to download on Google Play and App Store as well as available in multiple languages.
HarbaMaster marina management software digitalises time-consuming and ineffective marina administration processes. It empowers marina managers and the rest of the staff get a better overview of what’s going on in their marina, eliminates most of the paper-work, increases data security, improves communication with the boaters, and enables many other optimisations depending on the selected module.
As for the IoT hardware solutions, Harba cooperates with a 3rd party vendors developing HarbaKiosk – a self-service payment terminal for marina guests – which will significantly cut marina costs compared to other available alternatives in the market. There are a couple of more IoT projects in the development stage which are not disclosed at the moment.
