With the current economic environment affecting us all in our day to day business, we have been looking at how, as a group, we can streamline our internal processes in the provision of services in global employment and payroll that we offer to clients.
We have taken the decision to bring these services that we provide in-house, and have formed a new company, in Guernsey, Channel Islands named Viking Crew Guernsey Limited (VCGL).
VCGL has been created in partnership with individual leading employment and payroll specialists based in Guernsey. We will have a dedicated VCGL team based on the island, working directly with the current Viking Crew team located in Dover, Auckland and Fort Lauderdale.
VCGL utilises a modern online crewing application which can be accessed by the crew member, vessel manager and captain to upload documents, manage payments and store payslips. In addition to a payroll function it also has the capabilities of tracking and reporting hours of work and rest. This combined with a suite of efficient money transfer companies means we can improve accuracy of salary payments and reduce costs significantly.
We are confident that by creating and operating VCGL in-house we will be able to provide better efficiency, service, cost, and control for you.
