Superyacht GLOBAL is an affiliation between selected companies creating a network of professional and reliable service providers to offer vessels shore side support in key locations throughout Europe and Asia. SYG has currently 22 members in Europe and Asia and is growing continuously with plans to expand to the Americas and the Pacific.
The SYG iPhone app is a tool for captains, senior crew and management, and can be viewed here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/syg/id378776208?mt=8
The app stores all core data onboard so no internet connection is necessary to retrieve most information. Only displaying the members location in Google Maps requires an internet connection. The information provided is the members name and contact details, a location map and holiday information. Nothing upsets the smooth running of a yacht more than arriving in a new country and being confronted with an unexpected bank holiday with all offices and shops closed.
The user may dial phone numbers or send e-mails directly from the app or alternatively can add individual members contact information to the address book. Loading the app does not clutter your address book with unwanted information.
