Comprehensive training videos to get you up and running with VSS

Vessel Service Solutions (VSS) Online Resources

Your VSS Setup Package includes assisted set up and comprehensive training on all modules in VSS. However, in order to ensure a smooth transition and quick adaptation, we encourage our clients to review the videos prior to our onboarding meetings and to utilize them as an ongoing resource for training future employees or to brush up on system functionality. 

These videos cover basically everything you need to know about the system and include tips and tricks to fully utilize VSS which we may not get a chance to cover in the onboarding sessions.
