Lloyd’s Register (LR) Marine has launched what it calls an easy-to-use app for smartphones and tablets, enabling its clients to access ship and fleet data from anywhere in the world.

This new app, using the functionality of LR’s web service Class Direct, has been specifically designed to give users access to the information they need whenever and wherever, and is available now for free on iPhone, iPad and Android devices.

Users of the Class Direct app are able to book a survey with LR, monitor and check the status of their vessel’s surveys, browse the classification data LR holds for specific vessels and create a list of their ‘favorite’ vessels for quicker access.

"The new app has been completely designed around the needs of our clients, allowing them to access their fleet data while on the move and book surveys with ease." said Jo Townsend, Head of LR Fleet Services.
