Creating a digital driven maritime industry, connecting operations & maintenance for an agile and fast transformation.

Digitizing maritime field workforce

Maritime transport is one of the largest parts of global trade. Ships have to stay safe to protect cargo and prevent environmental damages. There is an immense effort to conduct ship safety inspections, and paper-based inspections are still common despite the risks.

Inadequate inspections could affect the crew's safety, so the inspection reports have to be highly accurate and quickly assigned a time limit to mitigate the deficiencies. If these inspections are still conducted using the paper-based system, everything from human errors to time-consuming data distribution impacts the ship's safety.

There is no better time for the maritime industry to undergo a digital transformation. Facing severe pressures to optimize operations and reduce costs, the traditional methods for vessel inspections do not work anymore.
