Maritime Software and Maritime Protection Systems
(MPS) have announced their joint services
to clients to implement the forthcoming ISPS requirements using the Vector Management System
The services start with practical security consultancy from which MPS develop the company specific ISPS documentation and manuals. The manuals are developed within the Vector ISM Manager software which has been expanded to suit the requirements of ISPS. The system allows manuals to be comprised of documents that are ship specific, apply to groups of ships or to the fleet and manages the distribution to the vessels with a complete audit trail of sending and acknowledged receipt on board.
However the system is much more than the documentation. MPS also specify the appropriate check lists and reporting to be carried out within the Vector Management System thereby ensuring that once implemented the ships security system is actively used and the results reported ashore.
The Vector Management System also provides statistics and reports so that management can review over a period of time and decide on what, if any, security improvements need to be made as a result.
