Seagull Maritime has significantly upgraded the Seagull Training App, the mobile software solution that has revolutionised the way seafarers track their training records and receive critical safety alerts. Available in both Android and iOS formats, the newly enhanced app can be used across a range of mobile devices, with dynamic screen layouts for all sizes, including tablets. The home screen has also been refined to include a bottom bar menu featuring click-through to notifications, training statuses and scheduled activities.
Seagull’s improved app also features enhanced record keeping that allows seafarers to maintain training schedules that capture both proficiencies and training days left. Where scheduling is in place, proficiencies are sorted by priority code and deadlines are set for completion.
If scheduling is not implemented, a list of pending proficiencies is displayed. Information of the next required proficiencies can be downloaded for local offline storage, with the default set to the next ten proficiencies.
“By creating a mobile training app, Seagull was the first maritime training provider to respond to changing seafarer needs, and we continue to lead the way by making enhancements based on customer feedback,” says Roger Ringstad, Managing Director of Seagull Maritime. “Today, recruiting skilled crews and retaining their loyalty calls on owners to demonstrate that they offer a viable career path. Investing in and refining the software that supports competency and safety offers tangible evidence of owner commitment to best practice.”
Seagull Training App v2.0 is available free of charge to all Seagull customers. Via synchronisation, it offers access to selected records within the Seagull Training Administrator Online database on all training requirements and competency, as well as downloadable training guidance notes. Company notices/fleet circulars are now pushed and appear as notifications on the seafarer’s mobile device, avoiding costly satellite communications.
