Crosby Tugs selected the ABS Nautical Systems (NS) mobile compliance software to enable compliance with Subchapter M regulatory requirements. By adopting NS Workboat across its fleet of tugboats, Crosby can record compliance data and generate safety reports on a mobile device while crew carry out routine operations.  

NS Workboat is optimized for a tablet and is available on smartphones for easy data entry, with no installed software required onboard. Ship and shore collaboration is accomplished through cloud-based functionality and offline work modes that automatically sync to the office when connectivity is available.

“The Inland Industry was pressed to find a simple and effective way to manage all compliance data required by the Subchapter M regulation,” said ABS Nautical Systems COO, Stephen Schwarz. “NS Workboat is designed to be as intuitive and familiar as the mobile apps you already use; it also provides a platform for better teamwork between crew onboard and personnel in the office.”

Wade Savoy, Crosby Tugs Corporate Director QHSE, said, “Our team at Crosby was searching for a complete software system for our Subchapter M compliance. The NS workboat system was a perfect fit for us.”

ABS said Crosby will benefit from the NS Workboat pre-built ISM data sets that includes planned maintenance jobs; meeting, inspection and drill jobs; and an inspected equipment list, allowing quicker implementation of its Subchapter M compliance plan. NS Workboat serves as a hub for all compliance-based data and is equipped with a fleet calendar view for smarter compliance plan tracking and management.
