Videotel launches training management and analytics platform

KVH company Videotel has introduced its new Videotel Performance Manager, combining training content from Videotel with web-based data analytics from KVH, with the aim of providing maritime managers with useful insights into fleet training activities.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The Cloud-based software platform provides access to the crew’s latest training records from any web-enabled device, with interactive, dynamically rendered reports and dashboards displayed to offer specific data about crew performance, skill levels, strengths, weaknesses, and training schedules.

“It offers a wide range of sophisticated features and reports enabling our marine personnel team to have accurate and timely insight of the training progress per person, per vessel, per title,” said Yannos Koudounas, performance & development supervisor at ship management company Thenamaris, one of the early users of Videotel Performance Manager.

“Consequently, this application becomes a valuable tool in decision-making for our seafarers’ onboard training plans. We like its simplicity and the fact that it is constantly upgraded with new features. Most of all, we have found that it is well-supported by a skilful and fast-responding team.”

New features in the web-based application include a crew management module to handle training programmes as seafarers move from vessel to vessel, alongside a schedule builder to create training plans for the crew based on established safety management systems.

A training reports module offers insights into what training is being carried out, where, and by whom, and provides evidence of compliance required during an external audit or ship inspection. An additional performance monitoring module is also available to track the progress of crew against recommended training schedules.

“The ability to quickly see the training status of all seafarers in a fleet provides important advantages for a maritime training manager,” said Mark Woodhead, KVH senior vice president, EMEA.

“With an easy-to-use dashboard, the manager can assess the precise level of a crew’s training, preparation, and compliance, which ultimately helps to keep operating costs low, and reduce safety and financial risk. This isn’t just recordkeeping, it’s valuable intelligence for maritime training managers.”

Videotel Performance Manager is available in three different packages, called Essential, Professional, and Master, that vary in the number of features and training titles provided.

All packages include access to the Crew Management, Training Reports, Schedule Builder, and Performance Monitoring modules, KVH says, with additional features expected to be added in the future.{/mprestriction}
