Meridian° - Best Superyacht Software Award 2022 Nomination

It's no secret that software plays a crucial role in the quality of life onboard a superyacht. We are extremely excited and honored to be a part of the ACREW Best Superyacht Software Award.

This award recognizes businesses that use digital technology to improve the lives of crew members and guests onboard. The product is innovative, well polished, easy to be implemented by the user, and has an overall attractive design. The software serves its purpose, and the provider is always available to support in case of any issues.

Meridian° is a global meeting room for maritime industry employers and crew, plus our innovative software lets you interview and verify crew. Experience an all-in-one platform that instantly connects you to your next opportunity or hire.

Employers - The Meridian° Advantage

Step 1: FIND. You need crew that are actually available, with verified work history and references, and with the right qualifications and skill set. Your subscription gives you full access to all crew profiles. Whether you use search to find that perfect crew member or post a job for crew to apply for, you will quickly find qualified crew with intelligent filters, our crew compare tool, confidential crew chat, and more.

Step 2: INTERVIEW. Other websites have you sort through CV’s and profile pictures to find crew. At Meridiano, we believe video is the future. Here, in addition to CV’s and pictures, we also have 30-second crew video introductions, pre-recorded standard crew interviews, and the ability to interview crew with your own questions. Video saves you time and expense by uncovering crew personalities and experiences typically only found during in-person interviews.

Step 3: VERIFY. We have an in-house verification team of yachting industry experts that manually verifies all crew qualifications with attached documents. Additionally, we also verify crew vessel experiences and references from within the last 5 years. Employers can view any verification data collected free of charge as soon as they are available.

Step 4: MANAGE. Hiring a great crew is only the beginning. Enter CREWmanager. CREWmanager is free with every subscription and allows you to manage all crew on board, their documents, training, leave, and more. Easily manage guests and their preferences too, including notes, menus, passports and other documents. With complete information on all crew and guests, use our time-saving Customs and Immigration tools to auto-populate your entry forms.
