Manage Seafarer Applications and Certifications with ease

We've spent the past decade building, hosting and improving cloud-based software specifically for Maritime Administrations like yours.

  • Perfect for Maritime Administrators

    You'll gain instant access to key statistics and data for seafarer certification and documentation, providing the ideal solution to the problem of collating statistics, analysing trends and performance as required by the III Code & the MLC. You also get access to product performance data as a critical input to your ISO Quality Management System.

  • A productivity tool for every STCW Manager

    Utilise a secure platform for the issue of endorsements and other seafarers documents. Gain instant access to the status of all certificates issued while meeting STCW Ch.1 Reg 15 & 16 requirements for external secure access to certificate data.

  • Self-Service for Agents and Seafarers

    Provide access to secure online portals enabling applications for endorsements, discharge books and other certificates to be processed electronically, with instant notifications of receipt of application and online payments to speed up processing times.

Software tools that help you meet your international obligations

From the IMO and III Code to the Maritime Labour Convention, OHQ Cloud supports your Maritime Administration and removes some of the headaches typically associated with being compliant.

  • STCW Convention

    The 2010 amendments to the STCW Convention requires flag states to make information on the status of any certificates and endorsements available to 3rd parties on request. From 1st January 2017, this information had to be available electronically in English.

    Seamlessly provide Seafarers and ship managers with an online portal to submit endorsement applications while enabling PSC officers to validate documents online or via scanning a QR Code with their smart phone. Then monitor and compare data points across your organisation to evaluate the frequency and type of documentation being issued.

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.

OHQ Cloud was build with Flag States at its core

With in-depth maritime industry knowledge and access to analytical data, we go above and beyond standard software offerings and deliver an expertly crafted solution with additional services to help you succeed.
