Our story

Crewdentials was born from personal experience of a deep frustration with the lack of standardisation or interoperability of seafarer information between systems and stakeholders.  The result being repeated duplication and entry of crew information into numerous systems: rarely verified, and rarely kept up to date. 

We knew that there must be a better way to manage seafarer information.  After all - there really is only one true and current version of this information.

Our vision

We are delivering software solutions and tools with the common aim of creating a digital present and future: every seafarer with their qualifications, experience and skills held in a single digital profile.

Enabling every stakeholder to have easy access to accurate, verified and standardised information which can be relied upon.

The result will be an industry which is more secure and efficient, with higher standards of compliance and data integrity.

The Founding Team

The founding trio have the perfect blend of experience within maritime compliance, legal, data protection, coding, user experience and customer support to deliver top end solutions to our customers.
