AUGUST 28, 2018 — Class society DNV GL is launching a completely renewed Shore Monitoring module for its leading port clearance solution Navigator Port. With a strong focus on the user experience, this new module is the first of DNV GL’s next generation fleet management solutions to be developed on the latest cloud technology.
Most shipping companies find it challenging to keep on top of crew work and rest hour compliance. It is essential to have the same view and information on board and in the office. DNV GL reports that its Navigator Port’s Shore Monitoring module is a user-friendly, cloud-based solution designed for monitoring work and rest compliance according to the relevant regulations. It also includes ship-shore synchronization of certificates and vessel master data management. Onshore users can access fleetwide advanced analytics and visualizations of work and rest data. The Shore Monitoring module scales automatically to phones and tablets, making it easy to check fleet status on the go.
“At DNV GL – Digital Solutions our development teams are extremely focused on user experience,” says Elling Rishoff, Head of Software Ecosystems, DNV GL – Digital Solutions. “Our next generation fleet management solutions are being developed in close cooperation with domain experts and key customers,” he adds.
DNV GL’s product management team conducted in-depth research to ensure that the users’ needs would be fulfilled. Customers were interviewed to determine the most efficient work processes and the best ways to optimize user experience. Pilot customers, including Seatrans and Odfjell, are continuously involved in testing new solutions.
“At Seatrans we offer high quality ship management,” says Erik W. Mohn, Head of Crewing and HR from Seatrans Ship Management. “We need to use the most innovative tools available. We appreciate the opportunity to take part in the development process of Navigator Port’s new Shore Monitoring module and are looking forward to fully implementing it,” he says.
Navigator Port is used by more than 2,500 vessels.
