OSM app to streamline crew management

Norwegian-headquartered OSM is looking to further digitalise its crew management operations with the launch of a new mobile app created over a period of six months by a team of its own in-house developers.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The app provides the company’s seafarers with an instant overview of all documentation relevant to their employment, including vessel assignments, communication with the company, pay slips, and other information.

OSM currently operates a pool of more than 11,000 qualified seafarers, delivering management services to more than 500 vessels worldwide.

“Our seafarer app is transformational in terms of its simplicity. All personal data, including experience, training, certification, medical records, and payroll can be accessed and managed from our crewmembers’ phones, and from our onshore office facilities. The crew can see what documents they have submitted, any information they may be missing, and check to ensure they are completely compliant with the requirements for relevant vessels,” said OSM CEO, Geir Sekkesaeter

“What’s more, an in-built messaging function, alongside newsfeeds and real-time notifications, enables seamless communication between seafarers, crew managers and the organisation as a whole. It’s a totally joined up way of working, slashing administration time, increasing efficiency and delivering greater control for both individuals and the organisation.”

“The efficiency gains will impact positively on our clients, with our crew department now able to shift resources from following up documentation to actively delivering optimal crew management solutions. This really is a digital leap forward for all our stakeholders.”

The app is available now for Android through Google Play, with an iOS launch planned imminently, the company says.{/mprestriction}
