Whether a company chooses to utilize Subchapter M 46 CFR 137.220 or a custom survey tool, MobileOps is a proactive solution when it comes to implementing, tracking, and maintaining compliance.
For example, a company could setup a recurring routine to check the condition of Emergency Lighting for each vessel, each month.

MobileOps comes with a robust, yet easy to use Deficiency process that ensures the loop is closed.

MobileOps helps you stay on top of compliance through automation, ease of use, and powerful recording keeping abilities. With MobileOps, you’ll be ready for Subchapter M compliance.
