The new Samson app has state-of-the-art inspection features built from 30 years of in-field inspection experience, bringing the power of safety and compliance to the palm of your hand. The app allows users to document inspections in an easy step-by-step process using Samson best practices. Automatic report generation enables users to make informed decisions based on those results. In addition, the app features an augmented reality measuring guide for recording line damage, offline capabilities for use in remote areas, and RFID scanning for ropes fitted with Samson’s INTELLITAG™ technology. Advanced review from Samson experts can also be requested using the app. The Samson app is available for iOS, Android, and Windows.

CONNECT is an online portal built to help customers in the maritime industry manage their lines. Working seamlessly with the Samson app and accessible by field personnel and staff, CONNECT includes inspection details, fleet analysis, data management, trend analysis, line life predictions, and rope condition visibility. Featuring a rope-centric dashboard, users can easily see upcoming maintenance, robust reports, including pre-port acceptance reports, and manage incoming data from the Samson app. In addition, CONNECT gives you the power to view, compare, and manage vessels at the Fleet level.

Samson’s CLASSROOM includes 12 courses ranging from Line Inspection Procedures to line installation and repair procedures. Not only does CLASSROOM improve crew knowledge and encourage safe decision-making, but Samson industry experts also lead these specialized training courses. Also included are course completion tracking, renewals, and reminder notifications.
