4/25/2011

SAN DIEGO – Boatracs Inc., a manufacturer of integrated communications and software solutions to the maritime industry, announced it has completed the installation of BT Forms, an electronic forms product, on 14 vessels for United Barge Lines (UBL), the inland transportation division of United Maritime Group. The project entailed the conversion of UBL’s Master’s Daily Log into an electronic form that captains can complete with their on-board PC, providing an efficient and easy-to-use form that transmits data in a cost effective and timely manner, according to a press release.

“Feedback from the captains has been excellent,” said Rocky Gunter, Director of Profitability & Financial Analysis for UBL, in a statement. “We now have consistent and accurate vessel information and the ability to generate valuable shore-side reports for operational analytics. BT Forms is a big win for a maritime operation like ours – ease of use for our captains, streamlined operations for management and better customer service for our clients.”

BT Forms is an end-to-end software solution developed to help commercial maritime operators increase operational efficiencies by converting paper forms to electronic versions that reduce the resources required for internal reporting and record keeping for regulatory compliance. With BT Forms, the vessel and shore see the exact same information. On the vessel. BT Forms uses smart forms that verify and validate complete information before transmission, reducing manual errors at the point of data collection. The hosted BT Forms web application on the shore-side can then compile the data into a variety of reports for managers.
