GNS VoIP service cuts communication costs by 40 per cent

Maritime technology company GNS and Edge AI software platform provider FrontM have announced a new technology partnership to help shipping companies save 40 per cent on the cost of shore to ship voice calls.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The new Voyager VOICE service uses Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology to cut the cost of calls to bridge satellite phone numbers. The technology will make it easier and cheaper for shore-based teams to connect with those based at sea.

Office-based users can call vessels from their desk using the Voyager VOICE web site. There is also a free smartphone application for low-cost vessel calling on the move.

In addition, Voyager VOICE incorporates a comprehensive vessel ‘telephone directory’ to enable users to quickly and easily find the right number to call.

The pricing plan for the technology is simple and transparent. Shore to ship calls using Voyager VOICE cost a flat-rate of just $3.60 per minute representing a saving of at least $2.40 per minute on most mainstream voice-calling tariffs. There are no annual service fees to pay over and above the $3.60 per minute flat-rate.

“Over the last few years, GNS has been steadily driving down our customers’ costs by challenging traditional business models with services like our Voyager NAVIGATION as a SERVICE (VNaaS) offer and Voyager MONEY,” said Paul Stanley, GNS CEO. “We are delighted to be working with FrontM to now be able to extend those savings to include shore to ship communications. Our new Voyager VOICE service opens up significant opportunities to manage shore to ship communications more cost-efficiently.”

Users can start operating with Voyager VOICE by creating an online account and dialling. Multiple user logins can be created for each company account and call volumes, duration and costs can be monitored by user, team and department to help companies to drive down communication costs further.{/mprestriction}
