Korean Register goes mobile

The Korean Register of Shipping (KR) has launched a mobile application called “SMART Fleet” that delivers information on vessels, fleets, surveys, audits and port state control.

Available on Android and iOS, the app includes a “push notification system” so that its users can receive urgent messages concerning PSC detentions and technical updates. There is also a “surveyor locator” function to help them find the nearest KR survey office.

“SMART Fleet” comes in two levels of information, the Korean Register of Shipping explains in a press release. Ordinary users can view basic information, while companies which own or operate KR-classed ships are given access to the full range of data.

Information delivered directly to the phone comprises: fleet lists, survey status, reports and schedules, classification rules, PSC detentions, checklists and reports, technical information and publications.

What is more, the Korean Register of Shipping (KR) has developed a mobile web version of KR-CON, its database programme of IMO (International Maritime Organisation) instruments. Mobile users will thus get access to a range of IMO instruments on the go.

“In today’s fully wired world, the busy shipping executive expects global, anytime access to vital vessel information,” said KR Chairman & CEO Oh Kong-gyun on launching the two products. “We are proud to be one of the first classification societies to offer such a comprehensive mobile service and we fully expect others to follow suit. The days of instantly available information are here to stay.”
