Mercy Ships uses hospital ships to deliver free healthcare and development services to some of the poorest countries in the world. It operates the world’s largest hospital ship, the Africa Mercy, and has over 1,600 volunteers working for the organisation each year.
SpecTec began working with Mercy Ships 19 years ago by donating AMOS onboard, which helped manage the vessel’s asset maintenance, purchase orders, stock control and budget.
The Africa Mercy will now receive the latest version of AMOS EMS, and existing modules from the current system will be migrated on to the new platform.
“Mercy Ships has used AMOS for many years, the ability of the software to adapt to our changing maintenance needs has been excellent,” said Ciaran Holden, engineering superintendent of Mercy Ships.
“The training we have received from SpectTec on both user and administrator sides has enabled us to train our people and refine the use of the program to meet our specific maintenance needs. It has made life for our onboard crew members easier, in reporting work and recording history.”
“We all highly value AMOS as an integral part of our maintenance plan in supporting the Africa Mercy thereby giving our medical staff the peace of mind and comfort of knowing as they work the platform is stable. Already we have great plans in mind for our future maintenance planning when we transition to AMOS EMS. We are looking forward to a long lasting partnership for the years to come.”
