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

    You'll gain instant access to key statistics and data for your registered fleet, offering the ideal solution to the problem of collating statistics, analysing trends and performance as required by the III Code & the MLC.

  • A productivity tool for every Registrar

    Register ships, mortgages, owners, charterers, local craft and all other legal requirements. Manage your registry including changes to any particulars with a permanent record of all changes and the authorised person making them.

  • Surveyors tool of choice

    A central planning and scheduling tool for surveys and inspections allows tracking of outstanding deficiencies and certificate expiry dates. Store reports, survey notes, PSC detentions, defect lists and more, whilst allowing instant access to statistics & analysis.

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.

  • IMO & The III Code

    The III Code has some very clear expectations for flag states in Sections 42, 43 and 44. It is clear that the IMO expects flag states to have access to a range of statistical data about their registered ships and to be using the data as a tool to inform its decisions and evaluate its performance.

  • Maritime Labour Convention

    The Maritime Labour Convention 2006 came into force on the 20th August 2013. Flag states are required to record and analyse accidents and occupational diseases, and to detect then act on trends. They must also publish an annual report on inspections and their results.

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.
