The maritime industry is facing an increasing number of regulations and reporting requirements, which makes it difficult to manage the reporting onboard ships without having a comprehensive and complete digital solution to assist. Traditional noon reporting systems and the use of paper or Excel fail to address the need for accurate and clean data. With SERTICA Vessel Reporting System you can provide the right support for your crew to easily generate the reports needed.    

Enhance operational efficiency and compliance with a complete set of integrated digital reports.

How to fill in a report in VRS

As shipping becomes more regulated and environmentally conscious, you need a unique Vessel Reporting System to collect, manage, and analyze data. Avoid adding new dedicated tools and excel sheets to comply with new reporting needs. The VRS is simple to use without onboard training needs and easy to implement across your fleet. In this demo you can see how to fill in a report to ensure that you meet the regulatory requirements of today – and the future.

Vessel Reporting System (VRS)

The need for reporting is increasing and evolving constantly. Traditional noon reporting systems have limitations in terms of flexibility and configuration options, as well as in automatic validation of data inputs.  

Consequently, vessels are required to fill out various spreadsheets, software, and paper forms to meet the growing demands. As a result, the same information is often reported multiple times, creating unnecessary work for the crew and reducing efficiency. 

With SERTICA, we offer an all-in-one reporting solution that meets all your needs. Our Vessel Reporting System provides comprehensive coverage of your reporting requirements, helping you to set up custom reports and dashboards tailored to your specific needs.  

We can even customize reports to ensure that you get the exact data you require, without the burden of unnecessary and time-consuming data entry. Streamline your reporting process, increase efficiency, and optimize your vessel’s performance.

You can customize SERTICA Vessel Reporting System to match your specific requirements as well as the regulatory requirements of the countries in which your ships operate. We help you set up a variety of reports with relevant information on the performance, operations, and emissions of ships.  

You can even set up a sequence of reports based on calculated and validated data to avoid human errors.  

Sequenced reports simplify the reporting process for your crew by letting them know which reports to fill out and when. It also ensures that data is collected and recorded consistently and accurately.

Following a set sequence of reports can streamline the reporting process and reduce the risk of errors or oversights, improving operational efficiency and reducing staff workload. 

Building sequenced reports is an essential step to improving the accuracy, efficiency, and reliability of the reporting process in the shipping industry. Here’s an example of a sequenced report: 

  • Departure report 
  • BOSP/COSP report 
  • Noon reports 
  • EOSP report 
  • Arrival/Berthing report 
  • Improve efficiency and reduce costs 
  • Ensure compliance with regulations 
  • Analyze data for better insights and decision-making 
  • Simplify reporting and reduce burden 
  • Digital reporting to minimize effort 
  • Scalable and flexible solution 
  • Professional implementation and project management 
  • Customer success management and support 
  • Support from experienced professionals such as naval architects and marine engineers, who understand shipping world challenges, reporting needs, environmental-related surveys, audits and documentation 

Setting up alerts in a Vessel Reporting System (VRS) can bring many benefits for monitoring and managing shipping operations. By setting up alerts, the crew can ensure that they remember to enter necessary data to generate their reports.  

To set up alerts in a VRS, it is important to identify the key data points and metrics that are critical for monitoring and managing operations. These data points can then be used to trigger alerts when specific conditions or thresholds are met.  

Early Warnings with Real-time Monitoring
Enable real-time monitoring of key data points and metrics like fuel consumption or deviations from the planned route or excessive speed. This helps identify potential issues early on and take corrective action to improve operational performance. 

Improved Compliance
Help ensure compliance requirements are met by providing notifications when specific thresholds or conditions are met. This helps prevent penalties and improves overall compliance with regulations. The frequency and threshold levels for alerts can be adjusted to provide the most valuable information for monitoring and managing shipping operations. 

Automated Data Management
Automate data management by triggering notifications when specific data points are recorded or when reports are due. This helps reduce the workload on staff and improve data accuracy. Data is recorded and stored in a consistent and organized manner, making it easier to manage and retrieve information when needed. This helps improve data security and support future data analysis efforts. 

The Vessel Reporting System (VRS) offers reliable data transfer between ship and shore with integrated data validations and calculations. It provides online/offline functionality onboard ships, ensuring uninterrupted data collection. 

The VRS is a web-based solution with a sophisticated Forms Designer and pre-configured reports. Custom forms can be created with the assistance of the system to match unique requirements. It is adaptable to various ship types to accommodate specific needs, making it a flexible and versatile solution. 

The VRS provides valuable information on users, units, port codes, and other master data. It also enables crew members to complete and submit vessel reports to all stakeholders with just one submission, avoiding unnecessary duplication of effort.  

Because the VRS is web-based, there is no need for extra hardware installation onboard. Your crew can quickly send reports, and your shore teams can easily access the submitted reports through SERTICA. 

The VRS works both as a stand-alone solution and as an integrated part of SERTICA Ship Management System.
