New system helps manage documents

Nov 11, 2015 by Guest Writer

Melbourne-based maritime software company Ocean Time Marine has added a vessel content management system to its suite of safety management tools. Dashboard helps captains and crew store and monitor vessel documents, as well as access them all in one place.

“Captain’s using the Dashboard are mostly impressed with the MLC hours of rest recording feature where they are able to record all the crew’s monthly hours of rest on one page,” said Jonathan Pike, lead product developer of Ocean Time Marine.

The company also launched a suite of digital safety document packs that allow vessel operators to monitor in real-time whether documentation is being completed and respond quickly. The packs are available in four collections: for vessels up to 8m, for superyachts, for fishing trawlers, and for passenger vessels.

“One of the benefits of the packs is that once a document is filled out, you can save it to the Dashboard or e-mail it to your office so you’ll never have to deal with forms being damaged, lost or forgotten again,” Pike said.

Ocean Time Marine is celebrating the launch of these new products by offering a free one-month trial to the Dashboard for the first 50 subscribers. For more information, visit
