The Crew Scheduling feature helps to ensure that the most suitably qualified crew members are automatically selected for particular assignments whilst potential candidates for occupational officer positions can also be proposed. Leave entitlements are automatically calculated.
Crew Payroll management is another key element of the software. Based on the company’s Ship’s Property Management System application, it is designed to handle all components of earnings, including wages, overtime, bonuses, incentives and allowances, as well as storing deductions. Multiple payroll cycles and frequencies are supported. Temporary or permanent pay changes are tracked. Standardized pay scales and ranges are incorporated and seniority scale points are maintained.
The accurate storage of data ashore and on board ship leads to dramatic efficiency improvements simplifying procedures and allowing more effective crew scheduling. Scope for human error is virtually eliminated and crew members’ data follow them from ship to ship. This facilitates accurate and more efficient human resource management.
