“The focus of Veslink has always been optimising ship to shore data collection,” said Per Ostman, product manager for Veslink.
“Nearly 1,500 vessels already use Veslink on a daily basis. Building on this success, the latest version represents a significant investment in the data transfer infrastructure as well as the user interface.”
“We’ve made it easier to collect the data you need, and we’ve given you the tools you need to aggregate and analyse that data quickly and intuitively.”
New features include a redefined fleet map, to allow operators to have an overview of fleet status and the ability to drill down to smaller details, and a network function to allow operators to share critical information with their voyage partners, service providers, and counterparties.
The software will now also include integrated data feeds with information from hub agencies, weather routing services, bunker suppliers, as well as AIS and other vessel position services, to supplement the data collected from users’ fleets.
On the reporting side, Veslink will now require vessel personnel to enter all data into standardised e-mail templates, to remove any requirement on the shore side for further data entry, eliminating transcription mistakes and wasted time.
