It is with great pleasure that we announce the launch of our latest product development, the CrewBoard App - an app that allows Crew to sign in and out of the yacht. It is the digital age equivalent to the onboard white board and provides quick, easy and mobile access to an overview of which personnel are on board.
Featuring a graphically appealing interface and an intuitive management system, adding new crew members, groups, subcontractors and day workers and accessing advanced features is simple and self explanatory. Profile photos can be selected or taken directly via the device’s in-built camera and uploaded. The iOS application can be used on a mobile or tablet touch screen device device located, for example, near to any exit on board, and crew members can then sign in or out by simply manually swiping to indicate their presence. Additional features can be added in the form of in-app purchases to extend the app’s functionality. These include User Plans to increase the number of users and Info Pages to provide location specific information whereby useful contact details for local authorities, medical and yacht services plus restaurants and nearby places of interest can be incorporated making the app a practical tool and resource for crew.
The CrewBoard App works as a stand alone solution on one device or can be used across multiple devices with automatic synchronization when combined with CrewBoard software installed on a local or hosted server. The addition of the CrewBoard server enables increased functionality and features which can be displayed and managed via both the app and the web page. The webpage version can be used on various sized (touch) screens and can also be used to instantly export a list of actual persons on/off board at any given moment, for example, in case of emergency or to review and filter historical presence and attendance data. It is also possible to synchronize CrewBoard within the cloud to provide a read-only, secure CrewBoard web page wherever you are, a feature which is ideal for fleets and management companies. With the server version, integration with onboard security systems is also possible enabling automatic sign in / out as the crew enter or leave the yacht using key fobs or swipe cards for example.

CrewBoard and the CrewBoard App will be on display at Monaco Yacht Show, stand QSE 10 alongside other YachtCloud products including Omniyon, our complete onboard entertainment system including audio and video on demand, live TV and integrated system and in-cabin control.
