Norway-based Klaveness Ship Management has rolled out a data transfer solution from maritime digital platform provider Dualog in just 24 hours.
With having a fast and reliable data sharing system between the vessel and office is increasingly important and Klaveness found that the Dualog Drive solution met its requirements for a system that was quick, easy to use and able to cope with challenging bandwidth conditions. Dualog says that uts system met and exceeded these key criteria, helping the ship manager to streamline information sharing and data replication across its fleet.
Dualog Drive has helped Klaveness replace many manual and email-based processes with fully integrated digital solutions that have greatly improved the collaboration between ship and shore-side personnel.
Asked why he specifically chose Dualog Drive, Jan Erik Rogde, VP, Head of Fleet Management, Klaveness said: “Operational pains and business pains need to be addressed, including departmental siloes and complex software and hardware setups. Also, security is a key concern.”
He added that, reviewing Dualog Drive, he found that its ability to address these issues meant that “we can now spend less time worrying about cybersecurity, data management and bandwidth bottlenecks while spending more time on additional business improvements.”
To roll out the system, Dualog personnel liaised with the Klaveness IT team in a carefully planned and executed test on ship and shore. Thanks to the simplicity of Dualog Drive, says Dualog, the entire operation took less than 24 hours.
