Enterprise software for ship registries

Already in use by five of the world’s leading International Ship Registries, MARIS has been designed to manage all the key business functions of a Ship Registry, providing a central database to help registries run more efficiently, reduce costs and provide a first class service to customers and stakeholders, whilst helping them meet international IMO, PSC, STCW, ILO and MLC requirements.

Key features of MARIS include:

  • Comprehensive reporting for internal management purposes and for IMO audits
  • Online services allows for self-service features which frees up staff time by passing input time to the client
  • Managing all financial transactions in one single system
  • Workflow management helps registries to work efficiently 
  • Documents can be securely stored in MARIS
  • Data can be entered into MARIS while offline, which is then automatically uploaded once on a secure connection 

Online services

By definition, online services are any information and or services provident on the internet. Migrating these services online means that maritime companies (and all companies) can help save time, money and increase efficiencies by asking clients to input their own information. Customers have welcomed this shift to digital channels, with many people being happy to carry out a multitude of activities online.
