SeaKits Releases V3.0 for Fleet Maintenance Support

Tuesday, January 18, 2011

SeaKits, the developer and provider of the Marine Maintenance System (MMS), has released Version 3.0 of MMS Fleet Solutions providing expanded functionality for workboat fleets, including passenger, tow and service vessels. MMS Fleet Solutions V3.0 provides Port Engineers, Maintenance Managers, and company executives with fleet-level visibility of all planned and corrective maintenance activities including maintenance schedules/forecasts, work orders, and inventory levels. MMS Fleet Solutions leverages Cloud Computing and is available as Software-as-a-Service, requiring no local IT infrastructure or support of any kind.

SeaKits recently signed a contract to provide turnkey implementation of MMS Fleet Solutions to Fire Island Ferries (FIFI) in Bay Shore, New York. FIFI is one of an expanding number of passenger vessel fleets implementing the Coast Guard’s Streamlined Inspection Program (SIP), a cooperative program between the Coast Guard and the passenger vessel industry that provides an alternative to traditional inspection regimes.

Dave Anderson, General Manager, said, “We were an early adherent to the SIP and saw in SeaKits’ Fleet Solutions a way to automate much of the paperwork associated with SIP. The SIP inspection requirements will schedule and alert along with our other planned maintenance items ensuring continuous compliance, one of the key objectives of the SIP.”

Boston’s Best Cruises (BBC), an early adopter of MMS Fleet Solutions will be using the new fleet-level work management and inventory management features of V3.0. With a fleet of 20 vessels located in Boston and Ft. Lauderdale and personnel leveraged between locations, fleet level parts and work activities provides a distinct advantage in vessel reliability. BBC’s Maintenance Manager, Kenny Campbell, said, “Fleet Solutions is allowing me to efficiently assign and track work and inspections across the fleet knowing that the required parts, engineering documents, and detailed maintenance requirements are available for each task. This reduces the time the maintenance workers spend looking for tools, parts, and documents.”

Commenting on SeaKits turnkey implementation approach, Tim Mooney, President of Fire Island Ferries, said, “SeaKits took the time to get on our boats and understand our operation so they could provide a fixed price proposal for the full implementation of a computerized maintenance program, including converting our paper-based Streamlined Inspection Program into an automated system. Their risk reducing approach to implementation was very compelling.”
