We're proud of the fact that Seafarer HQ was the first product to introduce the concept of QR codes and mobile validation on all seafarer documents back in September 2014. We followed this up in February 2015 with another first with the introduction of 2 factor authentication via Yubikey for secure agent and staff access via our partnership with Yubico.

Today thanks to the seamless security features in Seafarer HQ and verification of documents by PSC officers worldwide, we save our customers countless hours of answering phones, manually verifying documents and more importantly, provide a real-time daily view of their business operations.

It’s safe to say that online verification of seafarer documents is a game-changer; And with the deadline fast approaching for the implementation of the 2010 STCW Manila amendments, its time customers take stock and ensure seafarer documentation systems are fit for purpose.

Today's release of Seafarer HQ v5.0: Delahaye brings a wave of updates to the platform including multi-step application reviews, an overhaul in how we deal with tanker endorsements and online declarations for agents & staff.
