MCS Announces the Upcoming Launch of CertScanner
Marine Coordination Services BV (MCS), the offshore wind market’s personnel and traffic monitoring and coordinating specialists, announced that they’ve been developing a highly innovative digital platform for searching, booking & managing professional licenses, courses and certificates –CertScanner-. The solution which comes in the form of a SAAS platform aims to revolutionize the way different parties within project supply chains interface with each other. The announcement comes at a time when the industry has been hit hard by the CoVid19 crisis, basically cancelling a lot of important courses and pushing training providers & accreditation organizations to adapt by focusing on e-learning and other remote-based solutions. The official launch is set for the end of August and the team at CertScanner would like to take the opportunity and already invite all interested parties to follow their page on LinkedIn and stay tuned for the official launch.
“Our experience with MCS in staff management over the years has shown us that everyone involved in personnel logistics has to spend a great deal of time dealing with complex certification requirements and then manage those strategically in order to ensure a safe & efficient operation of the offshore projects they’re involved in.” said Jens Doeksen, Managing Owner of MCS and Founder of CertScanner. “Based on our experience in providing solutions to our clients in maritime and offshore industries, we decided to create a tool that will serve all parties around professional certification which comprise of the actual workforce that needs to be certified, the training providers and our clients who set the qualification standards. One of the key elements of our solution is the instant validation & verification process which will allow all parties a safe, fast and paperless transaction of the required documentation.”
CertScanner offers to blue and white collar professionals a very helpful and simple process to search for, book and maintain an overview of their certificates, while if offers the opportunity for training providers to enlist their courses and boost their exposure to thousands of professionals looking to get certified. Additionally employers who have the task to manage their staff and set professional training requirements will get access to a very innovative and user-friendly tool which will help them organize and efficiently manage their projects.
Cor van der Velde, Managing Owner of MCS and Account Executive for North & West Europe at Certscanner adds: “Once training providers have uploaded courses they wish to offer, the professionals will have the opportunity to insert their location & work/leave schedule, basically allowing CertScanner to come up with course suggestions based on location and suitable dates. Alternatively, our clients, staff managers who need to set the qualification standards, will have access to multiple handy options for organizing their projects such as, inviting their personnel to enroll with CertScanner, inserting their training matrix and having a clear overview of which employees are certified accordingly, maintaining a drag & drop crew planning tool and the ability to manage a drop-down project management overview based on personnel & professional certification.”
