Dive Shop 360, PADI Announce Integration


Dive Shop 360, a dive shop management system and an all-in-one, cloud-based point-of-sale platform created exclusively for dive shops, this week announced an integration with PADI.

The new collaboration will enable dive shops to manage PADI diving certifications and courses directly through the Dive Shop 360 platform.

Kristin Valette Wirth, chief brand and membership officer for PADI Worldwide, says:

“This exciting integration between PADI and Dive Shop 360 is tailor-made for PADI Dive Shops who seek to streamline their business by integrating PADI services into a modern POS management platform. This collaboration offers PADI Members the convenience of handling all their business needs in one place – from training materials to certification cards – making it easier than ever before for them to support their customers who want to seek adventure and save the ocean.”

This new integration eliminates the hassle of manually transferring customer data. By automating the synchronization between the two systems, dive shops can now quickly assign eLearning codes to students, all while staying within the Dive Shop 360 POS platform. This allows them to easily manage student certifications, without having to switch between different platforms. With this time-saving feature, dive shops will be able to provide a better experience for their customers while also streamlining their internal operations. The seamless integration helps save valuable time and resources that can be used in other areas of their business.
