Why switching from crewCONNECT to CrewLounge CONNECT ?


CrewLounge CONNECT is the new roster app to replace crewCONNECT.  This is not just a major software update! CrewLounge CONNECT is a completely new application, with many more functions, like Chat, Carpooling, Hotel Room list sharing, etc.


After updating the app for the past 5 years, it was time to restart from scratch and rebuild the application on new fundaments.  


There are tons of new functions that come with the new app, all based on your experience, comments, and suggestions.  Your feedback proved to be very valuable to us!
