Lloyd’s Register Marine has created an easy-to-use app for smartphones and tablets, enabling its clients to access ship and fleet data from anywhere in the world

This new app, using the functionality of LR’s award-winning web service Class Direct, has been specifically designed to give users access to the information they need whenever and wherever, and is available now for free on iPhone, iPad and Android devices.

Users of the Class Direct app are able to book a survey with LR, monitor and check the status of their vessel’s surveys, browse the classification data LR holds for specific vessels and create a list of their “favorite” vessels for quicker access.

"The app will be invaluable when an urgent matter arises and a senior officer is out of the office or during the weekend when we need to arrange a survey," said Anastasia Alyfanti, Fleet Coordinator of Piraeus-based Navios Ship Management.

"The mobility the app offers is great. You can quickly and easily check vessel information when on the move," said Dimitris Kainadas, Marine Engineer for Greek ship managers Thenamaris.

"The new app demonstrates Lloyd’s Register at our pioneering best. It has been completely designed around the needs of our clients, allowing them to access their fleet data while on the move and book surveys with ease," said Jo Townsend, Head of LR Fleet Services.

The Class Direct smartphone and tablet app is available now on the App Store and Google Play. To download the relevant version of the app for your device go to www.lr.org/classdirectapp.
