“Before Helm CONNECT, we used a paper-based system for all of our required forms and reports on the boats. Helm CONNECT allowed us to increase efficiency across the business, streamlining functions like compliance, inventory management and preventative maintenance. An added benefit that was crucial to our success was the user-friendly interface that has made it easy for our crews to adapt to a paperless system. Helm Operations partner, Tug and Barge Solutions built and implemented our Helm CONNECT package so we were able to convert without any hassle,” said Patrick Boles, Ivy Marine’s CFO.
Since 1999, Helm Operations (formerly Edoc Systems Group) has been developing operations software for the commercial maritime industry. Helm CONNECT is the flagship product of Helm Operations. Whether it is managing safety and compliance, maintenance, billing, or jobs, Helm CONNECT gives you the information you need to do your job efficiently. It is the workboat industry’s first software designed through user experience principles, which makes it intuitive for use by everyone in a workboat company, from the crew right to the CEO.
