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 ship owners & managers. 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 (SMS).

The volume of maritime regulations and compliance forms can create hours of paperwork for all, making it a complex, time-consuming and costly challenge to fulfil. Providing an audit trail for customers and authorities is critical but challenging to keep up to date.

Disparate systems for tracking data and storing documents can complicate both tracking and reporting, causing employees to spend significant time and effort gathering the information needed for satisfactory analysis.

A comprehensive SMS system also requires that shoreside teams have a high level of oversight of onboard activities. This requires a constant exchange of documents between ship and shore, which can present a challenge, especially when vessels do not have consistent internet access.

Introducing Docmap

Docmap is a digital solution that facilitates and simplifies ship-shore document exchange and administration across fleets.

Docmap stores all documents that make up a vessel’s safety management system, including regulations, policies, procedures, certificates and reports. Thousands of documents can be saved, categorised, tracked, and kept up to date through the solution, providing high level oversight and an efficient means of safety management.

The solution is available both online and offline, permitting crews to access and complete documentation while at sea. Data automatically syncs the next time the device connects to the internet.

Simplified Document Management

All types of documentation and reports can be created, structured and made openly or selectively accessible to designated parts of the company. This helps to streamline the flow of information and simplifies documentation maintenance.

Time Efficiency

Spend less time keeping track of documents and more time focusing on operational priorities including the safety and well being of crews, vessels and customers.

Mobile Accessible

Crews can easily access and complete a wide range of reports on their mobile devices while at sea using the Docmap mobile app. These forms are automatically uploaded when the device connects to the internet.

How it does this


Docmap is a browser-based platform that can be accessed and updated in real-time, ensuring teams have current information. Onboard teams can utilise the offline mode to complete actions and sync back to the platform when online. The platform can integrate with all systems including HR to provide a consolidated set of information.


The platform has built-in analytics functionality to collate and analyse the information input by multiple users and provide insights to inform additional actions or facilitate QHSE requirements in compliance fulfilment. Integration with Mircrosoft Power BI provides deeper insight for trends awareness and informed decision-making.


QHSE operations require fulfilment of actions in a consistent manner. Processes and forms have a standardised workflow enabling the data capture and storage to be completed and managed in a consistent format. This allows it to be quickly verified and understood. Shoreside teams can set alerts to identify discrepancies, late submissions and data accuracy – making it easier to focus on operational priorities rather than document management.
