From the Ship owner to the Captain, everybody understands the importance of rest hours for the crew of your ship and the detrimental effects if they are not followed according to the set rules. A viable, transparent and systematic system tool is what we have for better management of the work and rest hours onboard every vessel of your fleet.

SHIPMATE Work and Rest Hours system assists the Master to keep track of work and rest hours of seafarers as per working condition regulations laid out by STCW / ILO or MLC 2006. The module can be resident on board and can communicate with an office module (if desired) so that office can also monitor the information on all vessels.
