Vessel tracking and asset/document management software, used by hundreds of U.S. commercial workboat and fishing customers,  is now available internationally for integration into existing partner applications.
 

McMurdo Group, a company in end-to-end search and rescue (SAR) and maritime domain awareness (MDA) solutions, has announced that its fleet management software platform is now available worldwide for partners to integrate into their existing maritime applications and solutions. The McMurdo Group software platform, the most widely used vessel tracking and fleet management software in the U.S. commercial maritime market, will be demonstrated at the V-Tracks Vessel Tracking and Monitoring Conference in London (Radisson Blu Portman Hotel) February 27-28.


The platform provides partners with a robust suite of vessel tracking, two-way messaging, asset/document management and Automatic Identification System (AIS) display capabilities that enables end customers – owners and operators of inland waterway transportation firms, coastal workboat companies and commercial fishing fleets – to run their companies more efficiently, safely and profitably.  


“We are pleased to expand our fleet management software platform to the maritime industry’s leading international solution providers, application developers and technology integrators,” said Irwin Rodrigues, President, McMurdo Group MDA Solutions.  “To simplify application integration and development, the software platform has been architected with a rich set of APIs, a highly customizable user interface and extensive configuration options.  These partners can now easily enhance their current fleet management offerings with additional functionality such as AIS integration, forms processing and man overboard alerts to further help their customers streamline operations, manage assets and save lives.”  


McMurdo Group’s fleet management software platform is a web-based messaging and mapping software platform which allows the visual management of a fleet with two-way communications, giving operators maximum flexibility in managing their maritime operation.  It is part of the Group’s comprehensive portfolio of SAR and MDA solutions which also includes distress beacons, satellite connectivity infrastructure and emergency response communications.  Key software features include:
