For dry docking and ship repairs one of the most-used software programs in the shipping world is a worksheet. They are used for big jobs — jobs they’re not meant for. It has its limitations that can have costly implications.
Get a complete overview
Today, ship owners, technical managers manage their dockings and ship repair using a myriad of worksheets and installed software often in combination with a comprehensive PMS and ERP system.
To get the full picture, technical superintendent, docking team and fleet managers are forced to undertake the time-consuming and fault finding task of piecing together information from worksheets, various systems and e-mails. VesselMan provides effective collaboration for everyone involved in a dry-docking to see the latest updates in real-time, allowing stakeholders to quickly rearrange plans without spending time on manual updates.
Real-time site updates, tracking and notifications
There are few things more challenging than looking at layers of worksheet data and trying to come up with a coherent status or an analysis of progress. It’s critical to understand project status VesselMan can give you an easily digestible view of this crucial information.
Shipping needs to stay afresh and competitive - enhancing their existing business and inventing new - all at the same time. Cloud technology is a key enabler for the renewal, bringing agility, innovation and efficiency.
VesselMan offers a fast, easy-to-implement and cost-efficient option for improving ship owners drydocking. VesselMan is delivered as software-as-a-service (SaaS). Moreover, notifications help users identify and address problems before they become critical.
Digital collaboration in a safe environment across regions offices
Sure, worksheets are shareable, but that doesn’t mean they are a great tool for collaboration. The process of editing or even reviewing a worksheet together is inefficient at best and totally disorganized at worst. Worksheets comment fields are meant for brief notations, not back-and-forth communication.
Being a cloud-based solution, VesselMan captures updates from all users and only displays the latest information, while keeping an audit trail of changes made. User read and write access can be defined allowing for multiple stakeholders to collaborate on the same platform.
View a chronological record when tracking the work in drydock.
A worksheet can tell you when you first updated or most recently a project and not much else. Being able to see a chronological timeline of the progress updates, eliminates the need to search your notes before every status meeting, and allows you to hand off a teammate without having to explain everything that was done and discussed so far.
Since we started developing VesselMan, in 2014, our mission has been to build a platform that outmaneuvers worksheet in every possible way.

Creating new ways of thinking, sharing information, and collaborating with different players in shipping is key to providing better services to owners and managers. This is why we are now participating in a cooperation agreement with TrustedDocks.com, which will bring value to owners and managers.
We sincerely believe that our joint efforts will give results directly or indirectly to our stakeholders’ increased profitability and productivity during operation, planning, and execution of dry-docking/ship repairs.

VesselMan chief executive Glenn Edvardsen and chief operating officer and founder Stig Linna estimate that shipowners globally are forced to carry out about 20,000 or more dry-dockings, costing in the region of $75bn. So they see the cloud-based software for dry-docking of their Oslo-based technology company, which has already signed up shipowners with around 300 vessels in total, as a digital “no-brainer”: It simplifies, organises and cuts costs either for single projects or for entire fleets simultaneously.
Edvardsen and Linna tell TradeWinds that VesselMan's clients should expect significant savings for these regulatory dry-dockings but also for repairs and retrofitting, such as installing scrubbers or ballast-water treatment. “In terms of saving money, it is the standardised process, the efficiency and the transparency, and we believe that an owner will be able to reduce costs by more than 10% on the dockings,” Linna says. “Basically, it’s about taking the way vessel management is done to the next level by using cloud-based collaboration."
