How does ShipVisitor work?

A single tool for ShipVisitors, Managers and Administration.

  1. 1


    View all vessels currently in port and any that are en-route using real-time AIS data from Marine Traffic.

    Be prepared for the day ahead by creating a visit schedule or to-do list within the app.

  2. 2


    Check in and out of each vessel and easily report on your visit. Quickly document the important stories from your visit and easily add the numbers on the services you provided.

    Think a picture would help explain a report? Multiple photos can be attached to each report you publish.

    No more lengthy hand written reports at the end of the week or month, capture data on the move as you’re visiting.

  3. 3


    Managers can produce detailed reports for all visits by your staff, or focus on a port, a vessel or a specific ship visitor.

    Gain real-time insights into your organisations effectiveness and better understand the services that your team are delivering.

    Manage long running welfare cases than span ports, countries or vessels, collating information in a single actionable place.


“The ShipVisitor App has dramatically changed the reporting requirements of our chaplains at the Mission, and freed them up to maximise ship visiting and provide much needed welfare support for seafarers.”

““Ship visiting is a central activity of seafarers’ welfare providers. The ShipVisitor app is a dynamic tool that allows ship visitors to accomplish their work more efficiently, but especially it gives them a way to give even better care to seafarers. ICMA is thankful to Sailors’ Society for its willingness to make this great tool available for our members around the world."”

Jason Zuidema - General Secretary ICMA and Executive Director NAMMA
