Foss Maritime streamlines fleet with Helm CONNECT
Foss Maritime has announced that they have kicked off a company-wide project to centralize fleet management and operations with Helm CONNECT, a leading marine software platform. The announcement comes as Foss moves forward on an initiative to better organize and streamline operations across core business units and wholly owned subsidiaries along the U.S. West Coast, and in Hawaii and Alaska. As part of the agreement with Helm Operations, Foss will centralize its vessel dispatching, billing, maintenance, compliance and personnel management in the Helm CONNECT software platform. Released in 2016, Helm CONNECT has emerged as one of the leading platforms for marine operations and vessel management both in North America and globally. In less than two years since launching, Helm CONNECT is the most widely used software platform in North America, with some 40 percent of the fleet of the American Waterways Operators, America’s largest ship owners group, and today more than 3,000 vessels now use Helm CONNECT around the world.
