ABS adds mobile app for Subchapter M compliance

ABS has launched NS Workboat, a new mobile application from its ABS Nautical Systems (NS) software division that has been purpose-built for the workboat/inland sector.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The tablet-based application is delivered preconfigured to an operator’s selected Subchapter M safety management system. For companies selecting the US Coast Guard inspection option, documents required to demonstrate compliance are also included.

The mobile app is designed to facilitate ‘walk-around’ tasks for managing Subchapter M compliance requirements. No onboard software is needed, and very little training is required, the company says.

“This app answers the growing demand for easy-to-use point solutions – a need that is particularly pronounced in the workboat sector, where many companies have little to no IT support on their boats,” says ABS Nautical Systems vice president and chief operating officer, Stephen Schwarz.

“A mobile app is the ideal solution to simplify Subchapter M compliance requirements with minimal disruption to day-to-day operations.”

NS Workboat is offered as a Cloud-based subscription service on both iOS and Android. Tablets are delivered preconfigured by NS as a part of the system.{/mprestriction}
