VesselVanguard udpates software

Publish date:

Maintenance management software company VesselVanguard has launched its next generation of user interface that includes offline functionality.

The new VesselVanguard website offers streamlined access to private boat profiles that track and organize maintenance tasks for every piece of equipment onboard a vessel, sends task alerts for necessary service, assigns maintenance tasks via email directly to contractors and certified technicians, organizes warranty data and includes digitized user manuals.

“We have made a considerable investment in our quest to simplify the boat ownership experience,” said VesselVanguard founder and CEO Don Hyde in a statement. “Whether you have a bass boat, sailboat, long-distance cruiser or yacht, every boat owner and their service providers want information that is easy to understand and act upon. Let’s face it, boat ownership is not intuitive, and our job is to turn best guess into best practice.”

The site now also features a member resources section that highlights industry news and magazines, marine services and tips.

The new VesselVanguard App delivers the functionality to iOS and Android users and is available for download now from the Apple App Store and Google Play.

The mobile application includes off-line functionality so that boat profile data and downloaded manuals are accessible on a mobile device at all times.

Task assignments and rescheduling are pushed to an offline-queue to be executed when internet access is reacquired.
