VesselMan is born in the cloud, which means that our service is always made available to users on demand with no hardware installations needed.

The software is intended to make the work of a Superintendent and the Management easier by allowing both sides to gain executive and detailed insight into current projects. The modules that comes with the system helps you follow a structured and standardized process so that everyone knows what to do, how to do it and when to do it.

By using the Dry-Docking module in VesselMan you can prevent misunderstandings, unforeseen costs and pricing gaps when building a specification, which is key to a successful technical project.

VesselMan helps you be sure in your choice so that you can work with confidence.

When in the shipyard do not let extensive paperwork slow you down. Use our tracking app to make on-the-go updates wherever you are, with or without internet access. Report back at the office.

To sum up - Avoid wasting time on comprehensive work with Excel and Word sheets when building the specification and tracking progress. Use VesselMan to store all the information you need on one platform. Necessary insight is created with just a few clicks and all parties involved will have what they need to move forward.
