    Have you ever tried to sit down and read 93 pages of regulation from your local governing authority. It was frustrating to no end and would result in stress and tiredness.

    First of all I would like to thank you for your SMS template which was an essential piece of equipment for Mustique. Prior to your template I procrastinated for many months and put in many hours of non-productive time trying to put together a simple SMS for Mustique.
    I was hesitant at first but your template was an easy step by step guidance to me achieving an appropriate SMS for this vessel in a short period of time.
    There were times I needed some personal guidance and you been available by phone was essential. Your follow ups by emails and phone and text assured me that I was on track.
    The cost of your product was fair considering I had spent thrice that on wasted time trying to develop my own. I would recommend it to any persons putting together an SMS for their vessel.
    I was impressed by the custom made Ships Log Book which came in a binder. Up until then I used a dairy for a ships log.
    Also thank you for the assistance with the Risk Assessment profiles they also appear to be easier to use than what I have previously come across.

    Being based in South Africa, many of our systems are a little archaic, having the Ocean Time Marine SMS is incredibly helpful & beneficial to running a successful fleet safely. Since working with the team there, they have worked continuously to keep me updated & allow the software to provide what is required here.
    The team is extremely helpful, the software is a great asset to our company and to maintaining a current log for all activity pertaining our vessel.

    Rather than have a management company develop a safety management system, we decided to take control of our own safety and use the ocean time marine SMS software, not only was it simple and easy to use, it has become a very useful document on board. We make use of the checklists and permits to work on the iPad and no longer pay fees to a management company for a document we don’t control.

    Ocean Time Marine provided us with the perfect platform which was able to compliment the current procedures we already had in place. The Ocean Time Marine software certainly saved us thousands of dollars in consultation and allowed me to use my time more efficiently recommended for any Vessel Operation.
