The Riverbank Professionals App – The Features, the Benefits, and More

Life’s entirely different when you’re out on the waters. Whether you’re a captain, tankerman, or deckhand, it’s a lifestyle you must earn and choose.

Those dark nights with only certain tools and instincts to guide you, those forty-plus barge tows that you must build hard down, or those calls to docks with one wrong valve unturned can result in a catastrophe – it feels surreal the amount of responsibility we have.

Those who’ve never worked in our industry might not see it, but we’re the backbone of America. Without our hard work and commitment, this country falls. Plenty of educated individuals out on these waters don’t mind doing the extra work because we are this job.

We handle business throughout these waterways.

Unfortunately, finding that extra work for what you’re worth has become incredibly challenging, especially during this economic recession. Maritime companies need us to keep these boats crewed and are willing to pay a reasonable price.

If only there were a solution that could:

  • Solve these problems of an experienced tow boater trying to locate work
  • Help these companies locate those crew members
  • Get those tied-up vessels making  money

As a captain, I know we don’t come to others with problems, only solutions. So, please welcome Riverbank Professionals App.

But what exactly will the app do? And how will it benefit users?

We’re writing this blog to answer these and many other questions. So, make sure to read it until the end. This way, when the app is launched, you’ll waste no time using it to benefit yourself throughout the Merchant Marine industry.

Benefits of the Riverbank Professionals App

For Crewmembers

We’ve already mentioned that the biggest advantage of using the Riverbank Professionals App for crewmembers will be finding employment whenever needed.

But that’s not all our platform will offer.

We’re building it for tow boaters to assist in communicating with potential hazards amongst these waterways. The platform will also pinpoint announcements and request knowledgeable assistance from whoever uses the app.

In addition, the Riverbank Professionals App will highlight valuable information from companies to assist in safer travels and much more. 

You will also be able to renew your Coast Guard License by following a simple procedure that includes:

  • Receiving a notification when your Coast Guard License is about to expire
  • Confirming your information and providing additional details
  • Filing paperwork and scheduling a Coast Guard Physical with the closest physician
  • Signing the paperwork and sending it to us
  • Paying the required amount, after which we’ll send the documents to you
  • Receiving updates regarding the Coast Guard License renewal process

When we’ve gathered all the files, and they’re ready to be sent, we’ll email you a tracking number and charge you for the service. The process will be restarted when six months are left to renew your licenses or other documents.

For Marine Companies

For marine companies, one of the significant challenges is finding the right people for the right job, and even when they do, the crewmembers’ work leaves a lot to be desired.

Fortunately, you’ll be able to check ride and save competent crewmembers, determine whom you trust, and give your badge through our app. You’ll also be able to explore crewmembers’ profiles and learn all about them.

Once you’ve gathered relevant information, you’ll be able to make a well-informed decision. If this crew member doesn’t have your badge, see how many badges they’ve earned. It may help you crew that boat that needs someone immediately.

At this point, you might think, “How can I make sure the crewmember I’m hiring has proper credentials or if they’re even the right person for the job?”

We’ve thought of that, too.

All you’ll have to do is enter job-related details, and you’ll be good to go. That includes:

  • Job title, detailed description, and image (if possible)
  • Years of experience required
  • Skills the candidate must possess
  • Education level
  • Certifications the candidate must have
  • Number of available positions
  • Location where the candidate will be working

Once you’ve provided the details, activate the job and either start examining the candidates’ profiles or let them come to you and state their prices. After the agreed-upon hitch and payment is accepted, any information you need in your files will be delivered to you instantly.
