Edoc'sHELM Selected by Penn Maritime

Tuesday, February 20, 2007
Connecticut-based Penn Maritime Inc. (Penn) has selected Edoc’s HELM Marine Operations Software to replace their existing scheduling and invoicing system.

Penn’s current fleet of 19 barges and 13 tugs that operate along the east coast, gulf coast and west coast of the United States will have their voyages scheduled, tracked, and invoiced through HELM. Since Penn’s business is focused on bulk tanker barging it presented a unique situation for which HELM was adapted.

HELM will solve many problems users face in Penn’s current system. HELM’s flexibility makes it perfect for Penn’s high volume of business and constantly changing business requirements. By providing a graphical user interface to plot the vessel’s voyages, the system provides another tool for users to efficiently plan schedules. Penn will also be benefiting from the remote accessibility of HELM allowing users to securely work from offsite locations without making copies of their data as was done before.
