Thenamaris deploys Evo News across entire fleet

Greek ship management company Thenamaris has rolled out Marpoint’s Evo News service across its entire fleet of 87 vessels, which includes oil tankers, bulk carriers and containerships, three LNG carriers and four LPG carriers.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} Evo News is a daily e-newspaper service for seafarers that enables users to read news locally on the vessel without a connection to the internet. Thenamaris will use Evo News to enhance the end-user experience of accessing information while onboard. As there is no limitation in languages, articles can be delivered in the native language of all the different crew nationalities serving onboard each vessel.

Seafarers are also able to stay up-to-date with news from home and the rest of the world constantly, in a personalised way. Evo News allows seafarers to read news on their devices, customise their newsfeed by adding specific sites and topics, and access a wide range of preconfigured news providers.

A shipping company can also choose to send corporate news, messages, and any kind of updates directly to the seafarers as part of their daily newsfeed, if wanted.

Seafarers don’t have to worry about the cost of internet use as Evo News works without an internet connection. Moreover, there are no hidden costs for the company, and no lost working hours for technical intervention by the company’s IT department since Evo News can be installed and updated remotely on any vessel.

“In looking after of the most important asset of our company, our seafarers, we found Marpoint’s solution ‘’EvoNews’’ to be a very practical, modern and affordable solution to keep our crews updated with news from all over the world at all times,” said Yannos Koudounas, performance & development supervisor, Thenamaris.

As the industry introduces new technologies to make vessels safer, more environmentally friendly and cost-effective, technology is also playing a key role in improving crew welfare. The new generation of seafarers expects to have connectivity and welfare services such as Evo News on board, an expectation which may even influence their choice of employer.

Key advantages of Evo News for shipping companies:

  • Cost efficient
  • Improve crew welfare
  • Corporate news as an RSS feed
  • Company's custom newsfeed
  • Remote installation & maintenance
  • Advantages for the seafarers
  • No need to use crew internet cards
  • Unlimited languages for all crew nationalities
  • Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
  • Unlimited news providers & topics
  • No downloading delays {/mprestriction}
