The Embark project has reached a major milestone by rolling out the V.Crew Connect app to more than 10,000 registered users.
The app gives seafarers the opportunity to perform and complete mobilisation tasks from wherever they are in the world. It aims to give the seafarer more time at home to spend with family and ensure visits to the office are meaningful and value-adding.
The app, which was piloted in India in September 2018 and rolled out to the rest of the world from April 2019 onwards, also serves as a two-way communication tool as it allows seafarers to update and complete certain activities crucial to their mobilisation progress.
“At V.Group we care for our seafarers. Through the V.Crew Connect app, the seafarer experience is made better by enabling them to spend less time on administrative tasks such as uploading documents, updating availability for next assignments and other mobilisation tasks can be done through the app. I would like to thank everyone who has championed and supported the change.” said Allan Falkenberg, Group Managing Director, Crew Management.
