Fendrr Tools Getting Started with the Fendrr Tool App First, we need to set the yacht up on Fendrr by registering through the website. Log in to your account and start filling in all the relevant information. Wondering how to register a new boat? check out the video below. Step 1: Create a department – Create a relevant department such as an ‘Exterior Department’ or ‘Interior Department’. Each department has a unique QR code which will need to be scanned when crew join the App. Any crew assigned to a department will appear under the appropriate department on the website. The admin for the yacht can make any crew ‘Supervisors’ which means that the crew member will have access to the website using their accounts credentials. Crew can change departments within the app if needed. Check out the video below. Stock Control Step 2: First we need to create some locations and once these are created we can then add stock to these locations. This can be done with a simple stock count using the app. Check out the ‘how to’ video below. Our Stock Control tool has some useful features. We can set a Warning threshold for each item, which will highlight any items below that number to warn you of low stock. If a product has no barcode or you would like to group various items under the same QR Code, we can create the item through the website which then generates its own barcode. This barcode can be printed off and put at the location for crew to scan and adjust stock levels. Each stock sheet can be exported to Excel at the touch of a button. Multiple Barcodes may also be added to single items. Task List Step 3: On the website, we need to create a List. This can be ‘Todays Jobs’, ‘Night Jobs’ or a ‘Wish List’. You can make as many lists as you like. Then we can add tasks to a list. This will include a name for the task, description and a picture if needed. These tasks can be viewed on the app immediately and edited on the fly. Each task can be accepted by crew, turning the task orange and showing someone has started the task. When completed it can be marked completed which will turn the task green. These tasks will update in real time. Check out the video below. Checklists ‘Checklists’ tool allows you to create checklists that are likely to be repeated many times. For example a ‘Standard Operating Procedure’ (SOP) or a ‘Stowing for Sea’ checklist. The checklists can be ticked off by anyone in the department in real time and can be view or monitored from a desktop. When checking off an item, the persons name and time (in UTC) will appear next to the item being checked off. Sign in/out Board In Port: This is a virtual Sign in/out Board for the crew leaving and returning to the vessel. When leaving the vessel sign off the boat and when returning to the vessel sign back on-board. This keeps a real time list of crew onboard which can be viewed from the App or website. At Sea: When at sea, it is the same concept except designed for crew going from inside to outside. When crew go outside the system notes the time and position. When crew go on leave, there is an option for the crew member to go on leave and come off the crew board without leaving the Vessel on the app. Crew: How to get the app From our phones or tablet, visit ‘my.fendrr.com/toolkitapp’ and when prompted save to your home screen. Each crew member needs to register through the app and then they can link their profile with the department they work in. This is done by either scanning the departments QR Barcode or typing in the departments’ unique code (found in the ‘Boat Department’ section in the yachts profile). Now we’re ready. Crew who are made supervisors (which can be done through the website in the departments section) can log into the website using the same personal log in details for their app account. Fendrr Tools: Fendrr Tools has been created by someone who has worked in the industry and feels that efficiency can be greatly improved with the help of some simple tools. At the moment we have four tools up and running, Stock Control, Task List, Checklists and Sign in/out board. We are currently working on other tool ideas and we’re excited to see how it progresses in the future. New tools will be coming soon.
