Product of the Week: YachtCloud's new free crew app

Written by Gemma Fottles

The Dutch technology and media-hosting specialists, YachtCloud, have recently launched a brand new app dedicated to simplifying several elements of working on board a yacht. Named CrewBoard, the free app allows crew to sign in and out of their superyacht digitally, providing quick, easy and mobile access to an overview of personnel on board.

The app can be used across multiple devices with automatic synchronisation when combined with CrewBoard software on a local or hosted server. The service is also available as a web page version, and can be utilised to instantly export a list of presence on or off board at any given moment, for example, in case of emergency. It is also possible to synchronise CrewBoard within the cloud to provide a read-only, secure CrewBoard web page wherever you are - no doubt an ideal function for fleets and management companies.

Furthermore with the server version, integration with onboard security systems is also possible enabling automatic sign in/out as the crew enter or leave the yacht using key fobs or swipecards, for example. Other features available on the app include Info Pages, which can provide location specific information regarding useful information for local authorities, medical and yacht services, and nearby restaurants.

“We are delighted that the CrewBoard App is now available to download from the App Store. It makes the product more accessible to a greater number of yachts and crew across a broader spectrum. The product is designed to be as simple, secure and reliable as the original whiteboard has been for all those years but in a format that is more in line with today’s technology and needs of crew. The app itself provides a great solution for smaller vessels or even land -based businesses and the extended features available in combination with the CrewBoard server turn a simple app into a useful onboard tool and management system,” comments Andre Klepper, YachtCloud Founder.
