What is an eLog?

Electronic logbooks – or eLogs for short – are digital solutions designed to replace traditional paper logbooks onboard ships. This includes logbooks such as Deck, Engine and GMDSS, and IMO/MARPOL record books such as Oil Record Book, Cargo Record Book and Ballast Water Record book.

The true value in eLogs comes from standardisation of data entry, built-in error and sanity checks and ability to utilise the logbook data in other systems, such as onboard statusboards, ERP systems, EU MRV/DCS reporting and performance monitoring. 

Electronic logbooks and record books are primarily Flag state matters, but these days we also have international rules and regulations related to eLogs, such as ISO 21745:2019, IMO MEPC.312(74) and IMO Res. MSC.333(90).

Where can I get an eLog?

Elogs have been around for 10+ years and there are nowadays at least 30+ suppliers of these solutions, such as Kongsberg, Rina/Sertica, StratumFive, MariApps, Telko/Safepath, Gruppo IB, Napa, Samsung Heavy Industries SVESSEL®, Raytheon Anschütz, OneOcean/Chartco, Navtor, ABS, SPICA, Marsig and Weilbach. Elogs range from highly sophisticated and interconnected (and most of the time expensive) solutions to simple digital paper applications. Some of the suppliers favor a client/server desktop application architecture (like we do), while others are web/browser based. Most of the suppliers have started with digitizing the MARPOL Oil Record Book and then extending in some way to cover deck and engine logbooks, while some have built their systems from scratch to support all types of logs (like we did).

The founders of nauticAi have more than 10 years experience working with electronic logbooks and the multitude of requirements, needs and wishes of the most demanding shipping customers in the world. We naturally believe that our own solution beats all the others in quality, features, integrations, usability and especially price! 

nauticAi Log can be yours for as little as 99€/month.

eLog work process

The eLog work process is simple and robust. Entries in various logbooks can be created manually or automatically from sensor and other triggers. As per rules and regulations all data must then be manually verified by a named user and finally signed by the Captain.

What we provide

Simple to use

nauticAi Log is designed by sailors and for sailors and we pride ourselves with a super simple main view that shows all relevant data at a glance. No need to scroll through lists, jump in menus or double press a lot of buttons.

Auto-values, drop-down lists, port database, calculations, logic checks, external APIs, multiple backup-layers, triggers, attachments, statusboards, Excel export, ISO 21745:2019, IMO MEPC.312(74) etc.

Customizable without cost

We know that each and every company and ship is different and therefore our logbook system is designed to be easily customized to your needs. And we don’t charge you extra for customization of entry templates or APIs and integrations, like most of the other suppliers do!

Robust and cyber secure

nauticAi Log is a true 21st century digital solution, with robust offline-capabilities, multi-level backups and end-to-end encrypted data handling and storage. Designed in accordance with Flag state rules and ISO and IMO standards and guidelines.

Statusboards

One of the really cool features in our log is the possibility to extremely easily setup fully custom statusboard views on logbook data. These are typically needed by the Engine department where it is crucially important to easily check the daily status of multiple engine parameters, manual readings, running hours, fuel consumption and such like.  Setup is simple as the Engineers can prepare the desired layout using standard Excel tables and we then import this layout and connect the data.
