Pro is a back office solution for multiple vessel operations, vessel
owners, MegaYachts, marina operators, charter businesses, working vessels,
etc., and includes all features of FMS (see below) with many technical
upgrades, significantly improved code base and multiple user/network capability. Current version, Vista compatible.
Management System Single Vessel Edition (SVE)
VMS (SVE) is built on the foundations of VMS Pro and is intended for the
owner/operator (although suitable for many vessel types) who does not
need a full back office business database system. Because of the VMS Pro price reduction
VMS (SVE) has been discontinued. Support is available for a limited time.
Management System (FMS)

back office system intended for vessel owners, MegaYachts, marina operators,

short lifetime all FMS owners may acquire an upgrade to VMS
Professional at no charge. Retired.
