With increasing regulatory attention on maritime working environments through a range of new and binding labour and environmental conventions, organisations have to ensure personnel and assets are deployed safely, efficiently and effectively with the right skills and experience, with an audit trail to prove it.
Having accurate, up-to-date information on resources and requirements is a key first step for any organisation. Using this information effectively is the main challenge for maritime organizations at a time when finding and retaining the best skilled staff is becoming increasingly difficult.
The core workforce management challenges for maritime organisations are:
Siloed information held in spreadsheets and disparate databases or systems with little or no integration.
Poor data quality including duplicates, inaccurate, missing or contradictory information.
Time-consuming manual processes for reporting, troubleshooting and forecasting requirements.
The lack of a global view with each region managing their own datasets and using different tools/processes.
The restricted access to information due to disparate systems.
Allocate MaritimeSuite is specifically designed to address these challenges, enabling maritime organisations to deploy a world class solution across multiple regions. By providing a single central database, organisations have global visibility and can manage their workforce planning, training and skills matrix requirements more efficiently and effectively.
