Nautical Systems Mobile Applications

Nautical Systems Mobile Applications

The Nautical Systems (NS) mobile applications revolutionize onboard vessel management by giving crew and staff a simple interface that is responsive to their needs. The NS mobile apps work on any device, which means ship and shore collaboration is driven by quality data.

As the shipping industry faces pressure to operate more efficiently and profitably, digital solutions are replacing the traditional methods of maritime transport. Integrated digital platforms such as ABS Nautical Systems allow vessel owners and operators to find new ways to increase the productivity of their operations, optimize their assets’ performance, and maintain compliance with regulatory requirements.

Ship operators and crews need access to quality data for efficient operations. Without a secure digital platform, vessel operators and their crews cannot successfully utilize digital solutions.

Mobile Solutions for the maritime industry

ABS Nautical Systems has the most mobile-enabled applications on the market for the marine industry. The easy-to-use Nautical Systems Mobile apps combine ABS’ advanced technical solutions with the convenience and ease of a mobile application. 

ABS is the leading classification society in the marine and offshore industries. Our technical expertise and innovative digital platforms have helped thousands of ship owners and operators improve operational efficiency, personnel safety, asset lifecycle management, vessel maintenance, compliance solutions and more. 

The ABS Nautical Systems team designed its mobile applications to provide complete digital solutions. By using integrated mobile applications for vessel management, stakeholders can have secure access to data at every point in operations both onshore and at sea. From compliance and data reporting to fleet optimization and maintenance management, the NS suite of mobile applications offer powerful solutions for vessel operations. 

While many marine software solutions can be expensive, require extensive training or be difficult to implement, the Nautical System mobile apps are easy-to-use and implement onboard. With minimal training required and an intuitive user interface, the Nautical Systems platform was built to optimize the user experience. 

Better yet—the Nautical Systems mobile applications and modules have an easy set-up. These powerful digital solutions provide vessel owners and operators with convenience, reliability and a unified mobile platform. They do not require expensive software or hardware. They do require the purchase of additional hardware. All operators need to install the NS mobile apps is a mobile device compatible with iOS or Android.

Vessel Management Mobile Integration

The Nautical Systems mobile applications are turn-key, complete digital solutions. By focusing on the mobile platform compatibility, Nautical Systems acknowledges the future is digital.

These mobile applications are integrated to provide a seamless workflow collaboration for all users. This seamless integration is true for all user types (superintendent, officers, engineers and other crew members) and improves the operational efficiency of the fleet and crew productivity.

Each of these mobile applications was designed to integrate with each other and make data available in real-time for the necessary users. With the NS mobile apps, you can manage, report, export and analyze your vessel data within one system. The offline capability allows work to be done on or offline, with the system automatically syncing when connectivity is available.

Additionally, onboard users can share relevant data with shoreside users. Data sharing and management is facilitated by the mobile apps connecting vessels at sea to onshore operations. The workflow automation capability increases the productivity of the entire crew. The automation capabilities also make it easier to manage stock and other assets onboard.
