The use of clipboards and physical notebooks for maintenance records or safety drills is not just increasingly relic in today’s maritime community, it is also questionable business practice in terms of risk management.

As shipping enterprises realize greater complexity in order to fulfill greater client expectations, the most basic component offering the greatest odds for consistent success is accurate, timely transfer of information. Furthermore, transfer of information in a traceable, electronic format to the right audiences within appropriate windows of time is essential.

The ESA Vessel Management System directly answers this need for proper information flow between vessels and shore through its proven proprietary software application.

Why a Coastwise Vessel Management System?

Coastwise Vessels face unique challenges in executing their assigned tasks appropriately, safely and with consistency. Towing cargo up and down the world’s coastlines demands not only a highly competent crew, but also a highly competent Vessel Management System configured and designed to meet the intricate needs of a Coastal fleet.

Coastwise fleets were resident in the original group of companies ESA was tasked by to create its Vessel Management System, enabling us to use their experience to drive our design and configuration.

Should a Coastwise vessel realize spotty internet access during its voyage, ESA’s system continues running indefinitely – so workers can continue to perform tasks and input data. Once a connection is available, data transmission resumes and the shoreside administrators automatically are sent all relevant information generated while a connection was unavailable.

ESA’s Coastwise VMS at Work

ESA’s ESAs enterprise software is the engine that powers an easy-to-use, extremely powerful maritime application designed to alert, monitor, exchange, and track hundreds of processes and procedures required to operate a craft at sea while having a clear window into those operations ashore.

Whether above deck or below deck, bunkering practices or safety routines, from the greenest deckhand to the most experienced Port Engineer – literally every task and job description responsible for those tasks can be fully integrated into an ESA Vessel Management System.

With audit-compliant ISM or RCP document management functionality, various Task Engines automatically drive routine maintenance to the most mission-critical tasks from cradle to grave.

ESA - Solving Caveats of other Coastwise Systems

Connectivity: Even if a vessel is out of satellite/internet connectivity range, the crew can continue to perform its work utilizing ESA’s VMS. The system automatically stores all input data and releases it to shore once the craft reaches a connectivity point.

Ease of Use: After some simple training, every member of your organization – no matter their level of computer experience – will enjoy a comfortable rhythm utilizing ESA’s Vessel Management System in their daily work. The system
isn’t designed for computer science aficionados – it’s designed to help every day maritime workers be more efficient in completing their designated tasks.

User Groups: ESA’s VMS provides varying levels of access based on worker responsibility and risk management. Ground floor workers only see and report to tasks inherent in their daily work. The higher the floor, the wider the
application opens – aggregating access, alerts, and tracking mechanisms. Port Engineers and Boat Captains see virtual “dashboards” of their various craft in relation to all maintenance, safety, and records keeping.
