Paperless Check Lists using Triton Mobile

Posted by Steve Kahlich on Apr 26, 2017 11:01:19 PM

Check Lists have become the mainstay of safety maintenance compliance. Even yachts that are not required to follow ISM requirements benefit from a fully developed Safety Management System (SMS). Of course, the last thing an engineer or deck officer needs is more paperwork.

Vessel Planned Maintenance Schedules - Computer or paper?

Posted by Andy Levy on Oct 9, 2013 7:43:00 AM

In the past few months, we have written 2 guests posts about yacht technology for the OnboardOnline website--Yacht Management Software - usability and interface design and Yacht Refits - More Bang for your Buck. To return the favor, engineer Mike Wilson wrote the following article about yacht planned maintenance for us. I hope you enjoy hearing from one of your colleagues. ~Andy Levy


As technology improves, more and more options for scheduled maintenance, inventory control, ships and engineering logs are coming onto the market.  Certainly some programs are better than others - some are more thorough, while others are more intuitive. 


But the question remains: are computer-based programs the way forward, or is the old fashioned way of paper logs and the ‘Chief’s way of doing things’ still the better option?  The answer is in the eye of the beholder.

I have been working with Great Circle Systems since 2006 when they did the installation of all our networking and Internet communications equipment on our boat being built in Germany.


The equipment they recommended and installed was exactly as we required.  We have had extremely good results with all of their equipment and it has performed as they had advised.


I would highly recommend them to all fellow captains.

Triton has comprehensive essential features plus any additional features one can possibly need. It is still easy to use and has a swift support team to implement customer-specific wishes, such as individual day logs, etc.
