Maritime technology company GNS and navigation/telecommunications supplier SIRM have announced a strategic partnership, combining GNS software with SIRMís cloud-based capabilities to deliver new-generation ship-shore technology and enhance office-based situational awareness.

The partnership will initially focus on integration of SIRM’s FleetOnCloud and GNS’s Voyager Fleet Insight solutions to enable owners and managers to track vessel movements, monitor performance and support incident management from shore.

Voyager Fleet Insight monitors vessel movements, identifies unnecessary navigation spending, simplifies navigation compliance and helps keep track of KPIs. FleetOnCloud connects company logistics, engineering and navigation departments directly with data produced by the fleet.

FleetOnCloud captures data including real time video of ECDIS/radar and key data captured from onboard sensors to meet noon report, EU-MRV and other reporting requirements. Combining Voyager Fleet Insight with FleetOnCloud will provide shipping companies with understanding and awareness of day-to-day operations and vessel performance. Two modules, DataInsight and BridgeView, will respectively reduce reliance on error-prone manual processes, improve efficiency of reporting and analysis, and store video of ECDIS, radar and other systems for later retrieval. This allows viewing of the exact status on the bridge at the time of an incident, as well as for crew training purposes.

FleetOnCloud has been developed in collaboration with a leading shipping company, with a 400-plus strong fleet.

“We are on the cusp of a technology revolution in the marine industry. With data volumes increasing and real-time intelligent response a necessity of doing business, companies are becoming more dependent on technology,” said Luca Cesare, CEO, SIRM.

“We are very pleased to be working with SIRM on this exciting initiative. By combining GNS’s expertise in maritime solutions, with SIRM’s vision for ship-shore data exchange, we can achieve exciting new digitally-led efficiencies and safety improvements,” said Paul Stanley, GNS Group CEO.

The GNS and SIRM solution uses a scalable and high security cloud-based architecture, allowing rapid data access. FleetOnCloud services can be accessed via an app, optimised for tablets and smartphones.
