Eliminate complex and time-consuming paper trails, simplifying safety and risk management.

The Challenges

Safety and risk reduction are at the forefront of the minds of all mariners, fleet managers, HSEQ officers and owner/managers. They also represent the two biggest challenges.

For every voyage, crews are required to fill in several reports that affirm compliance with the policies, practices and procedures that make up a vessel’s Safety Management System. The sheer volume of maritime regulations and compliance forms, both internal and external, can create hours of paperwork for crews and shoreside personnel alike, making the system complex, time-consuming and costly.

Providing an audit trail for customers and authorities is very important but it can be a challenge to consolidate documentation in one central place and ensure it is always up to date.

A comprehensive SMS system requires high level of oversight which, in turn, necessitates the constant exchange of documents between ship and shore. This can present a challenge, especially when vessels do not have consistent internet access.


Introducing Docmap

Docmap, the leading global document management system for the maritime industry, is a digital solution that facilitates and simplifies safety management across fleets.

DocMap stores all documents that make up a vessel’s safety management system, including regulations, policies, procedures, certificates, reports and more. Thousands of documents can be categorized, stored, tracked, and kept up to date through the solution, providing a high level of oversight for fleet managers.

Crews can also access the solution, both online and through a mobile application, ensuring each vessel has easy access to up-to-date documentation relevant to their vessel, cargo, and routes.
