It proves to be especially valuable for maritime service companies, as well as businesses specializing in marine works, hydrocarbon transport, or dredging. This software enables managers and crews to effectively track, plan, and document preventive and corrective maintenance tasks, while ensuring compliance with manufacturer standards and recommended timelines.

Typically, the functionalities of such software include managing spare parts and equipment inventories, maintaining a history of interventions, scheduling periodic inspections, and generating detailed performance reports. By centralizing and automating these processes, CMMS for boats helps reduce vessel downtime, enhance onboard safety, extend equipment lifespan, and optimize missions, whether they are offshore or along the coast.
