Vessel Service Solutions (VSS) is a solution for covering ship or watercraft breakdown emergencies. With Vessel Service Solutions, order fulfillment has never been easier while at sea. As soon as distress calls are received, office dispatchers have the ability to send mobile orders straight from the office to captains. Captains can receive, view, and update order dispatches via the FileMaker Go® app on an iPad. Once the captain completes an order, digital signatures can be captured to confirm completion and the order can be sent back to the main office as an internet connection becomes available.

VSS is efficiently green and provides a paperless option that does away with the problems normally experienced with handwritten documents including messy writing, absent paperwork, and mistakes with data entry.

Vessel Service Solutions is built on the award-winning FileMaker® Pro database engine and can be customized to fit your needs.

What People
are Saying

I really appreciate being able to download the database every day.  I am a great believer in "off site" regular backups, and this gives me the ability to do so daily.     I have had excellent support hosting with you.  No down time, and no issues.     A satisfied customer,   Hank Mason Crystal Vaults

"I was so happy yesterday to recognize the control panel access is simply good old FileMaker Server 13 admin console, and I can do everything I need to do normally. I tested uploading the file to the PCI hosting server from a local FMP file, opening file remotely in FMP13 and then removing the old test file off the server. Tested getting a backup from Dropbox link too. All worked flawlessly. Another feature I like very much is having a "Removed" file automatically zipped and downloaded to the local desktop; so convenient! PCI hosting is awesome!"

"Thank you... I'm amazed at how fast and efficient you are. I've never had such good product support anywhere!"
