Baker Lyman Announces CORSAIR TVR Pre-Release

press release
Thursday, October 27, 2011

Baker, Lyman & Co. announced their long anticipated pre-release of CORSAIR TVR Software with interactive product demonstrations held at  the USCG Sub-Chapter M Public Hearing in New Orleans yesterday.

 

The USCG and AWO have sought scalable & affordable solutions for the proposed Sub-Chapter M rules and CORSAIR TVR is Baker Lyman's version of an electronic Towing Vessel Record which meets or exceeds safety, assessment, inspection, and training recordkeeping & documentation requirements.  Baker Lyman is the exclusive distributor of CORSAIR Fleet Management Software (FMS) which is due for full release at the 2011 Workboat Show; CORSAIR TVR is a fully intergrated module of CORSAIR FMS.


 
"We're astonished by the overwhelming reception to CORSAIR", said Mike Serafin, Managing Director of Baker Lyman, "and we believe the response reflects upon our longstanding relationships with towboaters, river operators, and the USCG.  BL has been doing business since 1920 so when Sub-Chapter M began in 2004 we reached out across the industry to see where we could help." Serafin said it's no surprise CORSAIR TVR offers the most user friendly & flexible mainframe in the towing industry and he attributes this to the collaboration of former USCG officials, Chief Engineers, and Operations Managers over the six year system development process.  
 
 

"Baker Lyman is uniquely positioned in the market because we service all elements of the tow industry.  We know everyone and everyone knows us.  When there's a need to bring people together it's just a few phone calls away", he mentioned. The final CORSAIR FMS can be interfaced with existing onboard navigation, barging, operational, & fiscal software protocols which in turn allow for powerful reporting & regulatory tracking features.  The product is now in BETA phase and Baker Lyman has a long pre-order list for CORSAIR.  With so many tow companies vying for resources to support the proposed Towing Safety Management System initiative Baker Lyman has hired new staff, expanded product lines, and increased the scope of services to meet the demand.  Nowhere is that more evident then BL's IT Department which now boasts numerous project managers, software developers, and quality control experts who are all seasoned marine professionals.
 
 

Corinne Titus, CEO of Baker Lyman, reflected that, "Baker Lyman products have always stood the test of time and CORSAIR is no different.  It has taken six years to bring CORSAIR to market  because we listened to the wheelhouse guys.  Many AWO members and TSOC members have played a vital part in CORSAIR's development.  Baker Lyman takes the success of our clients seriously and CORSAIR, like all of our products, fulfills Baker Lyman's century old commitment to boatmen."
