Leonhardt & Blumberg, the dedicated independent charter owner specialist of feeder containerships has decided to implement Buss Data’s CrewSTAR applications for parts of its fleet. The company has signed a contract for CrewSTAR Office and CrewSTAR Vessels modules and has started the implementation process.
The CrewSTAR application is designed to automate and optimize crew management processes as well as to coordinate all personnel-related activities in one place. It includes a comprehensive analytics module to find the best match for specific tasks.
Leonhardt & Blumberg will be using both, the office as well as the vessel module, in order to administer seafarers’ profiles, STCW compliant documentation and qualifications. Therefore, its database will include all additional details and files for almost 7,000 crew members.
With CrewSTAR, companies can carry out crew assessments, plan and organize crew changes as well as manage travel activities; it includes fully integrated payroll management with direct payment options to the seafarer’s bank, training and certification management.
The CrewSTAR is also capable of reporting work and rest hours, including monthly overtime, in compliance with MLC 2006 requirements.
All information is fully synchronized between ship and office via the CrewSTAR vessel module.
