Are you ready to begin your digital journey? Get started with an introduction to ABS Nautical Systems (NS) eLogs™.

What We Cover:

  • The foundation of electronic logbooks and why traditional paper logbooks should be replaced
  • How we created NS eLogs and what standards and Flag State Approvals were used for development
