This integrated module allows you to keep track of crew and guests both on and off the yacht and much more
Today’s superyachts require a large crew to stay beautifully maintained and deliver the unparalleled 7-star service and holiday experience our guests expect. Keeping track of all of them, not to mention all the guests coming and going, has become increasingly challenging. Thankfully, Total Superyacht has purpose-built solutions to make everyone’s life easier.
Rotation was once considered a privilege only given to Engineers and fortunate Captains. However, over time, it has become relatively normal for many other crew departments. More rotation means larger crew numbers.
Of course, the more crew, the more logistically challenging it becomes to keep track of everything: who is on or off the yacht at a given time, who is rostered on watch, when Chief Officer Tom returns from leave, whether Chef Brian exceeded his hours of rest, how much leave Chief Stew Emma is owed, whether Ben is properly vaccinated, and so on.
Tracking crew leave can be particularly tough when the engineers are on 2:2 rotation, the deck and interior crew on 4:2, the chefs on 2:1, and others with 60 days leave per annum. Since nothing off-the-shelf caters to the wide variety of scenarios that are ‘normal’ in yachting, it’s no surprise that leave tracking was one of our most common software addition requests.
It took some brainstorming, but our team understands the importance of yacht specific solutions (and the frustration of not having one!). The challenge was to create a system that catered to every possible scenario while greatly reducing the time the purser (or captain) needed to devote to tracking. Our solution enables yachts to set Employment Policies for each type of employment (Full-Time, Rotation, Temporary and Special Crew) and to specify individual crew member Leave Allowances.
