Kinnetik Solutions agrees Wrist partnership

Maritime e-procurement company Kinnetik Solutions has announced a partnership with the Wrist Ship Supply Group, the world’s largest ship supplier, which will see Wrist integrate its global platform with Kinnetik’s Cloud-based software platform.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The partnership will extend the reach of existing application integrations already developed by the companies to allow a greater range of customers to electronically exchange business transactions, such as RFQs, quotations and orders.

“Wrist have an ambition to offer value-adding digital exchange of business transactions to meet customer needs. The new partnership with Kinnetik is a key stepping stone to enable even stronger digital partnerships with our clients,” said Søren Jørgensen  EVP, CCO at Wrist Ship Supply.

The partnership agreement is based on a three-year contract, which the companies expect will lay the foundation for a longer-term business relationship.

“Kinnetik’s Cloud-based technology already yields results for Wrist and we cannot be happier about it,” said Ché Geldard, CEO of Kinnetik Solutions.

“Our vision for an intelligent global ship supply chain that delivers the right product at the right price, place and time, every time, is happening as we speak, and the benefits of this collaboration extend also to Kinnetik’s network of buyers.”{/mprestriction}

  • GTReplicate averts looming ship-shore data transfer bottleneck

    GTMaritime has launched a new cloud-based tool to automate a key part of the data transfer process between ship and shore, relieving seafarers and shore teams of a growing manual file replication burden. GTReplicate is a cyber-secure solution that automates synchronisation of files and data relating to vessel operation with next to no intervention.

    With the quantity of data shared between vessels and shore-side teams increasing at an accelerating rate, personnel onboard and ashore are having to spend ever more time uploading, downloading and managing file transfers manually. As well as being tedious, such repetitive tasks increase error risks, with the potential for serious financial consequences if the data lost or overwritten is needed to verify compliance.

    Running on GTMaritime’s FastNet data transfer platform, GTReplicate provides a reliable and highly configurable automated alternative that reduces the growing administrative burden on fleet IT managers and frees up crew to use their time more constructively.

    GTReplicate is performance optimised for use in a marine environment. This means it operates across a variety of connectivity platforms, including 3G, 4G, L-band and VSAT, maximising throughput in each case. To further conserve bandwidth, GTReplicate monitors files intelligently, only sending on those that have changed since the last replication.

    Acknowledging the range of specialised software used on ships and the diversity of onboard network configurations between fleets, there are no artificially imposed limits on the type or size of file GTReplicate can handle. It also enables automated bi-directional transfer of selected files, folders, or entire folder structures with multiple mechanisms for maintaining total data integrity. Shore-side email can be used as both replication source and target.

    GTReplicate provides shore-based fleet IT managers with a central cloud-based dashboard for configuring and controlling every aspect of how replication takes place, without having to involve crew. Advanced options include ship-specific task creation as well as pre- and post-transfer processing for maximum flexibility.

    With a nod to an increasing need for stringent security auditing, GTReplicate comes complete with a full suite of notification, journaling and reporting functions as standard, ranging from basic timestamping to granular detail on execution status and files moved. Likewise, it features robust and flexible archiving functionalities.

    Mike McNally, global commercial director at GTMaritime, commented: “Shipowners are now embracing digitalisation as a low-overhead route to improved operational efficiency, but the growing information flow poses challenges for manual processes in ship-to-shore data transfer. GTMaritime created GTReplicate to provide a scalable, secure and highly configurable solution for automating file transfers and averting a data logjam.”

    FastNet is a multi-stream platform designed for today's data demands. Employing a variety of bandwidth management techniques, it optimises, secures and then transfers data packets according to business needs. It will form the core of all GTMaritime products going forward and can be made available to its customers for bespoke digitalisation projects.
