Adonis aims to help operators manage their crews using its Rotation Module. This fully automated crew planning solution enables users to see the status of an entire crew, a specific department or an individual member at any time.
Based on the look and feel of Microsoft Office, the solution displays the planning forecast of shipboard services, courses and leave, as well as up-to-date absence statuses for sickness and holiday.
The Adonis Rotation Module uses a competence and certification requirements matrix to trigger visual alerts if an individual does not comply with the requirements of their role, or similarly when the ship does not comply with its pre-set conditions.
The management system also enables operators to set up rotation plans far into the future, with the module supporting a variety of rotation schemes based on daily, weekly or monthly schedules. With Adonis Rotation Module installed in the onshore office and onboard ships, operators can easily prepare for sudden changes to the crew or the ship’s itinerary.
Adonis’s smart system for crew planning reduces stress and creates fewer disruptions during the working day, resulting in more satisfied employees, a better use of resources and ultimately greater savings.
