New Vessel Management Program Introduced By Watercom

Watercom officials recently announced the availability of a new software program designed to electronically record and maintain business information on board boats. The new product, PC-TRAP, is user friendly, can replace hand written logs and can transmit information to shore side offices.

PC-TRAP uses pre-formatted forms, and the menu driven program includes deck log information, crew log information, tow diagrams (barge arrangements), pickup/drop-off7exchange orders, fuel logs, phone directory and electronic mailbox messaging. In addition, the program can be customized for other forms as required by the user.

With PC-TRAP, information is entered in the computer and stored. It can then be modemaccessed by the office 24-hours-a-day using the Watercom telephone system. Transmissions are easy-to-read and can also be printed out on board.

PC-TRAP joins Watercom's other communications services and products which include Automated Vessel Tracking System (ATVS). ATVS is a service which automatically pinpoints boat or fleet locations anywhere along the 4,000 miles of waterways Watercom serves. In addition, the company's one-of-a-kind, direct-dial telephone system offers voice service, data transmission, facsimile capabilities, credit card calling for crew members, low nighttime rates and other benefits to companies doing business on America's rivers.
