Provo, Utah – July 11, 2023 – (PRWEB) July 11, 2023 -- Dive Shop 360, the leading dive shop management system and an all-in-one, cloud-based POS platform created exclusively for dive shops, today announced an integration with PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors®). This strategic collaboration enables dive shops to easily and efficiently manage PADI diving certifications and courses directly through the Dive Shop 360 POS platform.
“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," says Kristin Valette Wirth, Chief Brand and Membership Officer for PADI Worldwide.
