ISO9001 Quality Management Systems

Obtaining useful data on fleet performance is always a difficult task for an ISO Certified Maritime Administration. A fleet of safe ships is essentially the "product" for ISO9001 and product performance needs to be analysed, then input into management decisions & strategy for continuous improvement. Oceans Cloud makes it easy and provides a set of inputs that will easily satisfy ISO audits.

Internal Analysis

Creating, then growing a Marine Administration & registry in a very competitive market requires good access to data on performance. A manager needs to be able to see where there is growth, where there are problems, how the fleet is changing, where he needs to enhance marketing and what the financial indicators are. Oceans Cloud provides a set of kay data inputs to this process.
