With over 40 years of combined experience working onboard, ex-Purser Jodie Clarke, and Captain Dave Clarke know a thing or two about the practicalities of a superyacht operation. After moving ashore they launched Superyacht Operating Systems and built an immense document library which they subsequently evolved into two game-changing applications, Total Superyacht and LUXE, transforming SOPs across all departments.
We met up with Jodie and Dave to discuss the benefits to a yacht’s overall program.
OO: Tell us a little about Total Superyacht and the problem it solves for large yacht operations.
Based on decades of experience, we know how time consuming it is managing a department or an entire vessel using outdated tools like Excel and Word which are not designed for this purpose. At the same time compliance is getting ever stricter and management companies are paying more attention to the bottom line. We therefore saw the opportunity for a complete vessel management solution to increase efficiency and enhance safety across the board.
OO: So what are the options for clients and how does it work in practice?
The system itself is easy to set up, it’s fully customizable and clients can even apply their own branding to the platform.
Our Vessel Management software comes with a modern interface, a Checklist App and automated workflow which includes everything from Work Lists, Equipment Lists and Planned Maintenance to Manuals, Inventory, Crew Certificates and In/Out Board, all on one easy to use platform that is fully ISM, ISPS and MLC Compliant.
Our compliance software is available in two formats – Mini ISM and Full ISM – including for example, Drill Matrix, Non-Conformities, Accidents & Incidents, Risk Assessments, Notices & Circulars, Medical Reports and DPA & TSA Comments, which sync between the yacht and servers ashore. The benefit to the yacht is a huge reduction in administration time, especially when it comes to audit preparations.
Our Fleet Management software is designed for management companies to increase efficiency at fleet level, again saving time and money and reducing risk whether it’s for five yachts or 50. Smart data processing also provides Fleet Analytics to guide decision making and enhance safety.
