Helm CONNECT adds 15 customers

Software developer Helm Operations reports that it has signed up 15 commercial maritime companies to use its planned maintenance and compliance software, Helm CONNECT, over the last two months.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The companies come from a variety of industries, such as the fishing, passenger vessel, research vessel, inland / coastal barging and pilotage vessel sectors.

“Businesses are craving software that’s easy for their people to use,” said Rodger Banister, VP marketing at Helm Operations.

“They want software at work to be as easy to understand and use as their smartphone.”

Tugboat company Weeks Marine is among the new customers, set to use Helm CONNECT to electronically manage the maintenance and repair programme for its fleet of 14 tugboats.

“We decided [to select the software] because it gives us the means to comply with AWO's Responsible Carrier Programme in preparation for USCG Subchapter M,” said Jan Andrusky, towing manager.

“Helm CONNECT really jumped off the page because of its user friendliness and reasonable pricing. Helm also gives us the ability to implement additional features easily in the future.”

Harbor Towing and Fleeting, a New Orleans based towboat and barge fleeting company, also recently signed up for the software, with Sarah Hattier, HSQE manager, noting that the decision was based on the flexibility of the product.{/mprestriction}
