YachtCloud, technology and media-hosting specialists for the yacht and superyacht industries, has launched a free to download app called CrewBoard, a digital record system for crew to sign in and out of their yacht replacing the traditional whiteboard.
The app has an attractive and intuitive interface, making it easy to keep track of crewmembers, subcontractors and day workers. Profile photos can be uploaded or taken via the in-built camera.
The CrewBoard app can be used on a mobile device or nominated tablet device at a fixed location so crewmembers can sign in or out with a simple swipe.
Key features of the CrewBoard app:
Complete user profiles
Image with each user profile
Works on iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad
