 PDMS Maritime is delighted to announce a significant new contract with the UK's Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) to provide a new integrated system to incorporate seafarer management and approved doctor records, delivering process efficiency improvements and enhanced customer services, in line with the MCA's Digital Strategy.

The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) is an executive agency of the UK Department for Transport. Its responsibilities include UK ship registration and seafarer certification and it is widely recognised for its operational and technical ability. 
This investment in cutting edge digital technology is strategically aligned with the IMO's recent recommendations to reduce registry administrative burden through electronic record keeping.
PDMS Maritime will be delivering a modern platform which will incorporate all the business management processes for a Seafarer Records System (SRS) and Approved Doctors Information System (ADIS), provided as a new single integrated system. 
 The browser-based system will significantly streamline the MCA's processes to improve efficiency, greatly improve the management of information and business services, and further facilitate the delivery of exemplary levels of customer service. 
Bruce McGregor, PDMS Maritime Director who spearheads MARIS, commented: "We are very much looking forward to working closely with such an important maritime organisation as the MCA - applying our technology expertise and partnership approach to help them achieve their strategic business objectives."
Bruce further added, "This is an exciting project for our MARIS team who will also be able to bring real benefits resulting from our existing experiences."
PDMS Maritime's new client, the MCA, marks another success for PDMS team.  This is the second new MARIS related contract award this year alone - after PDMS Maritime also recently announced a new contract for MARIS with the Maritime Cook Islands (MCI).
