Dupre Marine goes live on new crewing software

US-based Dupre Marine Transportation has become the first company to go live with the newly-launched Helm CONNECT Personnel software for crew management and payroll, the companies report.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The personnel module is part of the Helm CONNECT software platform, which covers a variety of aspects of marine operations from vessel dispatch, chartering, and invoicing, to maintenance, compliance, and now personnel management, crew scheduling, and payroll.

Dupre Marine Transportation is a Houma, Louisiana-based tow boat operator specialising in petrochemical transportation. The company began with Helm CONNECT Maintenance and Compliance in 2016.

“Our old system was difficult for our vessel staff to navigate, and we were still using paper for many of our forms and inspections,” said Calvin Self, operations manager at Dupre.

“Since implementing Helm CONNECT, we’ve become a more efficient, better organised operator, and have improved communication with our vessels. We now have better insight into what’s happening on the boats and can easily see what’s being done and when it’s being done.”

“(With the Personnel module), instead of using Excel to manage crew changes we can now see everything in one system, including who’s on which boat, who’s already scheduled to work, and who has a conflict. The transparency for the crew is also a huge win. Changes don’t get lost in e-mails and the crew can log into Helm CONNECT and see everything instantly.”{/mprestriction}
