Maximo VS BoatOn Book

A ship management software is an essential tool for maritime professionals, significantly enhancing efficiency in their daily operations. It simplifies boat maintenance management, inventory monitoring, procurement, and purchasing. Advanced solutions go further by facilitating crew scheduling, certificate renewal, and tracking of logbooks and navigations. These software solutions are designed to optimize the operational organization of maritime service companies, enabling valuable time savings and efficient resource management.

Here is our comparison between two very different boat management software : Maximo and BoatOn Book.

What is boat maintenance software?

A Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) for boats represents essential technology designed to optimize and streamline fleet management. It is particularly valuable for maritime service companies and businesses specializing in maritime works, hydrocarbon transportation, or dredging. This software enables managers and crews to efficiently track, plan, and document preventive and corrective maintenance operations while ensuring compliance with manufacturer standards and recommended timelines.

Typical features of such software include spare parts and equipment inventory management, maintenance history tracking, scheduling of periodic inspections, and detailed performance reporting. By centralizing and automating these processes, boat CMMS systems help reduce vessel downtime, enhance onboard safety, extend equipment lifespan, and optimize missions, whether at sea or along the coast.

How important is a boat maintenance software for marine service companies ?

Imaginez un logiciel intégrant toutes les données essentielles relatives à votre navire : les prochaines tâches de maintenance, la gestion de l'équipage et des prestataires externes, les stocks de pièces détachées ainsi que les certificats obligatoires. Les logiciels de maintenance navale offrent cette centralisation complète de l'historique de votre bateau, accessible à tout moment et depuis n'importe quel endroit.

En plus de cette centralisation, ces logiciels simplifient considérablement vos opérations quotidiennes : planification des interventions, suivi des budgets, gestion des commandes, tout en garantissant la conformité aux réglementations spécifiques du secteur maritime telles que la MLC, MARPOL ou l'ISM. Ils sont particulièrement précieux lors des événements cruciaux pour votre navire, comme sa vente. En effet, un logiciel de GMAO témoigne de votre engagement sérieux et rigoureux envers l'entretien de votre navire, préservant ainsi sa valeur patrimoniale. De plus, il peut contribuer à réduire l'empreinte carbone de votre flotte en fournissant des indicateurs pertinents pour optimiser la consommation énergétique.

Ces logiciels sont également essentiels pour retrouver rapidement les informations nécessaires afin de défendre vos intérêts en cas de litige. Par exemple, le BoatOn Book permet déjà de partager sélectivement des données avec des tiers autorisés tout en assurant la confidentialité des informations sensibles.
