NATO Undersea Research Centre installs Marine Software on 'RV Alliance'
U.K based Marine Software Ltd have successfully supplied the NATO research vessel "RV Alliance" with their Marine Planned Maintenance, Stock Control and Requisition/Purchasing software suite.
Managed on behalf of the NATO Undersea Research Centre by Anglo Eastern (UK) in Glasgow, the local Base Managerís Office at La Spezia, Italy also took delivery of the office management software. The office will monitor vessel input to the Planned Maintenance and onboard Stock Control modules, along with the Purchasing module which initiates Ship Requisitions into the Purchase platform to include budgeting.
The contract also commissioned Marine Software to migrate data from the vessels existing system prior to installation, to ensure all historic Planned Maintenance and spare part component history records were accurately transferred into the new system.
A barcode label option was also included that will assist with the speed and accuracy of stock control and tracking of spare parts.
During the final database commissioning visit, Marine Software personnel delivered a 3 day training course for the ship officers and local shore management team associated with Requisition and Purchase, and follow-up training will embrace those involved in maintenance logging and stock control.
