the CrewMate app means that every Oceanskies crew member can have access to a personalised and secure 24/7 employment resource on their mobile device...
Below is an overview guide to all the functions within the CrewMate app. Please note, the colour scheme is customisable by each employer, so your app may look slightly different.
