Helm CONNECT Planned Maintenance

Unplanned maintenance and break fixes aren’t just annoying, they can also damage your reputation with customers and ultimately affect your profitability. Reacting fast to an unplanned issue is crucial. 

Helm CONNECT Maintenance can reduce maintenance expenses and increase the life and performance of your equipment by standardizing and improving your maintenance routines. Track the full maintenance history for each asset or piece of equipment. Ensure your vessels stay within regulatory compliance by organizing all planned maintenance tasks in one centralized system and be well prepared for both internal and external audits.

Helm CONNECT Maintenance was developed to mitigate unplanned breakdowns and to develop consistent, efficient maintenance routines. 

Watch an Overview of Helm CONNECT Planned Maintenance: 


Helm CONNECT Onboard is just one part of Maintenance. Onboard gives vessel-based crew one simple view of all tasks assigned to that particular vessel.

Onboard is designed for the crew on the vessel. It provides specific vessel spaces including Engine Log, Mate's Desk, and Wheelhouse. Each space shows only the information relevant to operations on board. Onboard is a portal in which all vessel based routines, tasks, inspections, and maintenance is easily found, completed, and logged. All planned maintenance requirements can be viewed on one screen.

Key Benefits

  • Full history of all logged work quickly filtered by last 24 hours, 7 days, and 30 days for quick review.
  • Shows all inspections and maintenance items that are assigned to each vessel space and filters these tasks by their due date.
  • Extra area to log custom or unique work completed.
  • Room to add a photo when it's required.
  • Allows for quick and simple entry of all the tasks scheduled and completed during rounds.

Helm CONNECT Dashboard is made specifically for shore personnel, it is a key component of Maintenance. The Dashboard allows fleet managers to see the status of each vessel at a glance; how many overdue tasks a vessel has, if any readings are out of spec, and the number of planned, unplanned, and drydock action items relating to each vessel.

The Dashboard is set up with a card view for each vessel, but that's not all; from here each vessel can be isolated to show a more in depth view of activity and readings. Filter items here by severity, who is assigned to tasks, by tags, even division and people related to tasks. The simplicity of the main dashboard is offset by vast amounts of data and reporting available on each vessel, and all at the click of a button.

Key Benefits

  • One-screen-snapshot of your vessel activity.
  • Easily identify those vessels with unusual readings.
  • Ability to drill down into each piece of information from one screen.
  • Keep track of all maintenance tasks, including non-critical tasks so nothing gets lost.
