US-based marine software and data specialist Q88 has launched a collaborative Q88 Onboard module for Tanker and Dry Bulk vessels on Q88.com and Q88Dry.
The new tool allows the crew to have full access to the vessel’s data. Masters and officers can update and produce questionnaires, manage certificates, update inspection records and their officer matrix in a familiar and straightforward solution. Terminal questionnaires can be created and shared on the fly from the bridge, enhancing fleet performance and efficiency through streamlining conventional processes.
Founder and President, Fritz Heidenreich says, “Q88 Onboard extends our digitalisation efforts to the vessels with a simple yet comprehensive solution to help run each vessel more safely and effectively.”
In addition to the standard Q88 features (which are limited to only one vessel), Q88 Onboard also provides access to all Annex I commodities in Milbros, the from/to cleaning recommendations for the same limited commodities. These features are available only for Q88 Onboard users from a new ‘Commodities’ menu. Annex I commodity database does not apply for Q88Dry Onboard
“Combining the Marpol Annex I commodity details, safe handling and cleaning recommendations with the popular features of Q88.com for use onboard tanker vessels, we are helping our customers ensure safe and economical transportation of clean and dirty petroleum products,” said Heidenreich.
