Technomar Shipping has chosen the RINA-developed Sertica Vessel Reporting System (VRS) as a single system to cover all reporting requirements.
According to RINA, as compliance with future regulations is becoming increasingly complex and time-consuming, companies need to be forward thinking and plan how to face the challenges ahead.
Theodore Baltatzis, GM Technomar Shipping, said: “We wish to consolidate all our reporting needs into one efficient, flexible and future-proof system. As a starting point, we are already using the standard EU MRV and IMO DCS reports in Sertica, but we are planning to soon create our own customised reports in the platform to simplify reporting even more.”
Sertica VRS allows monitoring of all key data and metrics from vessels in real-time through one platform. Shipowners can, therefore, identify potential issues and deviations early on and take corrective actions to improve operational performance. Traditional reporting systems have limitations in terms of flexibility and configuration options, as well as in automatic validation of data inputs. Sertica VRS provides the freedom to add validations and sanity checks that improve data quality and eliminate errors while reducing the effort needed from the seafarers.
Baltatzis added: “Sertica VRS is developed by RINA, a company with a long-standing global presence and expertise, that provides the confidence that regulations are met, and calculations and validations are accurate. The support received from experienced professionals, such as naval architects and marine engineers, who understand the shipping world challenges, reporting needs, environmental-related surveys, audits, and documentation is an added value that cannot be easily found.”
