Marlow Navigation has introduced a new mobile application for its seafarers called CrewCompanion, helping to enhance organisation and interaction, as well as support crew in their work and day-to-day life.


Marlow Navigation has launched a new mobile application for its seafarers called CrewCompanion, available on both the iOS and Android platforms.

As part of the first release, this new mobile App offers a range of features that helps make a big part of the administration process between Company and Crew much easier and more efficient.

For instance, information and material is synchronized with a seafarer’s device when connected to the Internet. Important alerts and notifications can also be enabled to keep a seafarer reminded and updated, such as with regards to new assignments, flight details, payslips and expiring documentation, amongst others.

This has already proven to be a valuable extra feature for reaching out to crew in a proactive and immediate manner during the recent novel coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, keeping everyone well informed and connected, whilst helping to further drive operational and safety outcomes.

For added convenience and in order to improve communications, important worldwide contact information relevant for each seafarer’s assignment is also available via the App. Other key features include a vessel tracker, latest company press releases and the official newsletter.

Additionally, the App boasts a new innovative social tool called ‘Whose Around’, encouraging seafarers to locate, connect and chat with other fellow crewmembers in their vicinity.

“We are very pleased to have CrewCompanion up and running. This new App has been created specifically for our seafarers to help make their working experience while ashore and at sea more dynamic and easier. The technology has indeed already proven its worth during these globally challenging times,” states Joint Managing Director, Marlow Navigation, Jan Meyering. “The App provides a wealth of information and practical services digitally for our crew, as needed for their assignment at sea,” adds Meyering.

CrewCompanion is being further developed by Marlow’s inhouse IT and software development team, with more useful and time saving features to come in later versions.

The App is exclusively accessible for all seafarers engaged with Marlow Navigation, with secure login and is free of charge. For more information and to download CrewCompanion, click here
