Crew internet management app launched

Dualog reports that it has introduced a new Crew Connection app to allow seafarers to manage their onboard internet usage via their mobile device.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The app can be downloaded free from Google Play or the Apple App Store and works on any personal smartphone or tablet. Once onboard, the crew member can sign in to the system and will be able to manage their devices linked to the internet, controlling the amount of allocated data they use during each online session.

The application includes a facility to access crew company e-mail addresses provided through the Dualog service, where crew members joining a ship receive their own corporate e-mail account that can continue to be accessed on shore after leaving the ship, if required.

“We all know that internet bandwidth is limited on board ship, so it is particularly critical to manage this capacity,” said Walter Hannemann, product manager at Dualog.

“But seafarers are no different to any other industry workforce in that they want to be able to use their own devices to access apps through the internet while at sea. Helping them manage their individual capacity usage by logging on to the crew’s Wi-Fi connection through the Dualog app is a win-win for the seafarer and for the ship owner.”{/mprestriction}
