Boatracs and KVH join forces to serve smaller vessels

Boatracs and KVH report that they are to work together to deliver a communications service for small to medium sized businesses in the commercial workboat and fishing markets.

Sold through Boatracs, the Boatracs mini-VSAT Fleet Management Solution includes a TracPhone V3 (to be called the Boatracs mini-VSAT V3), as well as Boatracs’ fleet management platform, Boatracs BTConnect.

BTConnect is a web-based solution that integrates message and mapping functionality, and includes features such as route planning.

Other software products like BTForms, an electronic forms system that automates vessel data collection, can also be included. The new service will be made available and supported through KVH and Boatracs’ dealer network.

"We are very excited to partner with an innovative top-tier company like KVH to integrate the award winning TracPhone mini-VSAT Broadband system with Boatracs’ software solutions for the commercial maritime market," said Irwin Rodrigues, president and CEO of Boatracs.

"With increased regulatory compliance reporting and heightened competition, the needs of our customers have evolved dramatically over the past few years. We’re seeing a growing need for simple yet highly effective integrated solutions that drive operational efficiencies, vessel productivity and compliance."

"The Boatracs mini-VSAT Fleet Management Solution meets these requirements in an affordable package through a single provider known in the industry for reliable service and a dedication to customer support."
