Why Choose Breakwater

In today's dynamic digital landscape, cloud computing has emerged as a catalyst for optimisation across various industries. With over a decade of industry leadership, Oceans HQ Ltd has established itself as a leader in maritime cloud solutions. Breakwater is built upon our expertise in cloud solutions to help take your ship registry to the next level.

  • Unparalleled Accessibility & Scalability

    Breakwater offers unparalleled access to ship registration software worldwide. By migrating your registration system to the cloud, you gain the freedom to access and update registration data from any corner of the globe, as long as there's an internet connection.

    With the powerful scalability of our cloud-based platform, Breakwater adapts to the volume of registrations, allowing you to efficiently collate & analyse statistics related to your registered fleet as required by the III Code & the MLC.

  • Uncompromising Security and Trust

    When it comes to ship registration, data security is of paramount importance. Breakwater offers robust security measures that safeguard your sensitive information and legal documentation. With our commitment to security protocols and strategically distributed data centres, we protect against data breaches, unauthorised access, and unexpected hardware failures.

    Rest assured, with OHQ Cloud, your data is in the safest hands, allowing you to operate with peace of mind.

Simplify Administrative Processes

Gone are the days of manual data entry, cumbersome document handling, and demanding paperwork.

With Breakwater, we redefine administrative processes associated with ship registration. Our sophisticated cloud-based platform automates crucial tasks such as data capture, document management, and scheduling surveys & inspections.

This reduces human errors and decreases processing times.

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. OHQ 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. OHQ Cloud provides a set of key data inputs to this process.

Fostering Collaboration and International Compliance

Breakwater fosters collaboration and information sharing among all stakeholders involved in ship registration. Our cloud-based platform seamlessly facilitates secure communication and data exchange between ship owners/operators and regulatory authorities. With Breakwater, there will be no more fragmented communication or disjointed processes.

You deserve a registration workflow that eliminates manual handovers and communication gaps. This is why we have built-in meticulous audit trails and international compliance features, so Breakwater can equip you to meet and exceed regulations.

Information Security

At the heart of OHQ Cloud is our unwavering commitment to information security. Continual monitoring, firewalls, IPS/IDS and multi-factor authentication keeps your data secure.

Legal Compliance

In-depth audit logs detail every change to any data element across the platform and help you comply with local and international legal requirements as well as supporting ISO9001 quality management and caters for bespoke reporting.

Updates for Life

Always run the latest version designed by a team of experts combining an exceptional knowledge of maritime administrations with the technical experience to help you comply with the III Code and international conventions.

Gibraltar Maritime Administration

Gibraltar Maritime Administration uses OHQ Cloud to grow a quality fleet with competent seafarers

“We aim to grow the fleet based on quality, not just volume and the combination of Maritime and Technical expertise demonstrated by Oceans HQ was instantly visible in the quality of the products, showing a deep understanding of our sector. The pricing model also suited our budgetary needs being significantly cheaper than a new custom solution and the SaaS platform meant we would remain at the cutting edge of the sector for years to come.”

We have been using the Oceans HQ platform for over a year and can already see drastic improvements in our workflow, procedures and ultimately delivering the end product, a vessel’s registration. In addition, these greater efficiencies have freed up the availability of our staff who can now focus on delivering better service to our clients around the world.

Regular discussions are held with the team at Oceans HQ to continually ensure they understand our needs. They show us how existing features can fulfil our requirements and suggest suitable alternatives to keep on succeeding. The depth of knowledge on both the tech and importantly the maritime requirements blows my mind almost daily. There is no "them" and "us" – it's a true partnership that has been built with mutual trust at the core.

I'd highly recommend Oceans HQ to other IMO Member States without a second thought. My only regret is in not moving to OHQ Cloud sooner.
