At Martide it’s no secret that we love technology. And we’re committed to using that passion, and our knowledge, to help power the maritime industry forward. We’re strong believers that technology should make life easier for those who use it, eliminating repetitive and mundane tasks and allowing you to focus on what you’re really good at and what you love to do.

Does your shipping company need to close the data gap?

We’ve embraced the new wave of technology-driven change that impacts the two most valuable assets of any business – people and information. New technologies allow you to extract the maximum value from your data, and keep pace with the competition. But your people are the backbone of your organisation. Without them you’d be lost - the problem is, seafarers are often isolated. So how do you bring these valuable assets closer together to get the maximum advantage from them?

In the maritime industry technologies such as crewing and recruitment platforms can have a huge impact in terms of empowering seafarers and connecting them with the rest of the organisation. They can also help you find the best people for your crew and manage them far more efficiently and cost-effectively. Technology is also a force for change: it can be harnessed to help run a tighter ship (excuse the pun…) by eliminating reams of paperwork, being able to predict ETAs, ensuring there are no breaches in safety and security, and improving and modernising training for seafarers.  

Stop for a moment and think about what the biggest challenges that you need to overcome are in order to close this gap. Is your data scattered across a confusing mass of tools and programs? Is it hard to keep track of who has access to what information? Is the information flow in your business less of a flow and more of a stagnant puddle?

Email, integrated management systems (IMS), and customer relationship management (CRM) systems changed how we communicate, collaborate, and share information some time ago. And now Artificial Intelligence, RFID and disruptive tech such as drones and blockchain are bringing workplaces and industries right into the 21st century.

So how can Martide help?

We make managing your existing crew and your recruitment pipeline easier

We provide a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution that eliminates the headaches associated with managing crew. Our platform connects manning agents, shipping companies and seafarers all in one user friendly place. We ensure real-time compliance via a web based platform for crew and fleet management; connecting crew managers worldwide with their manning partners, ship owners and crew.

Our aim is to make your workflow easier, and to make managing interactions between people simpler. After all, it shouldn’t be hard to talk - especially in these times of ultra connectivity! We believe that processes should be easy, efficient and transparent. Particularly in the shipping industry where so many different parties are involved (and so much money is at stake!)

Built for the small and medium ship owner or manager

Martide is a cloud-based crewing system built to empower and support the small and medium sized ship owner or manager through all stages of the maritime recruitment process. Our main focus is on building user friendly software that people actually want to use, and we cover all crewing processes from candidate selection to mobilization and reporting.

We offer a web-based application that requires no up-front investment, no installation, no training, and yet all the functionality and benefits you expect from a fully integrated crewing system. Our clients are established vessel owners, ship-management companies, crew manning agents and  crewing agencies.
