Miller’s Tug & Barge, Inc. Chooses Vessel 365

Miller’s Tug and Barge of Staten Island, NY has chosen MarineCFO’s Vessel 365 solution as the product to facilitate SubChapter M compliance.  Miller’s operates 3 tugs performing long distance harbor towing, motion picture work, ship assists, barge assists and marine drilling.

 

Miller’s Tug and Barge chose Vessel 365 when their 25 employees expressed a need for more efficiency.  Per Terry Demeo, General Manager of Towing Operations, “We were searching for a way to stay ahead of the Subchapter M and AWO RCP audits & boat requirements.  We needed a method to insure timely reporting on qualification and regulatory demands.  Existing efforts by all departments to document audits, and other necessary data required much follow-up and time out of our regular schedules to manage data across the departments.  After reviewing other software packages, we quickly realized that V365 allowed us the control of knowing that our Subchapter M, AWO RCP and audit requirements were being tended to without worry.”

When asked what efficiencies Miller’s Tug and Barge has seen improved since the implementation of Vessel365, Ms. Demeo stated that, “We have peace of mind that all regulations are being met, if items are missing we are notified in a timely fashion and the support staff for Vessel 365 has proved invaluable in helping us get up and running quickly.”

VISION
To be the technology thought leader in the global Workboat Industry.

MISSION
Through technology thought leadership, provide products and services that empower workboat operators with Vessel Enterprise Resource Planning through sustainable data collection, tasking, and decision making tools.

MarineCFO’s Vessel 365 exceeds all the SubChapter M recordkeeping requirements both as a Towing Vessel Record and as an alternative TSMS recordkeeping solution. Because Vessel 365 stores SubChapter M mandated “objective evidence” our solution helps minimize the towing operators’ exposure to Jones Act litigation. Statutory entries for chronological vessel activities, personnel, safety, fire systems, navigation, assessments, nonconformities, & document management are all included in the Vessel 365 feature set.
