Goldenport and OceanGold opt for Marpoint news system

Athens-based ship operators Goldenport Shipmanagement and Oceangold Tankers have integrated Evo News across their entire fleets to provide seafarers access to daily news. Evo News is a customised RSS package that delivers compressed news articles to vessels at sea.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The purpose of the news service is to enhance seafarer wellbeing by giving them access to thousands of news articles and pictures without needing internet through a user-friendly custom web interface. The articles are delivered to each vessel by crew nationality without any limitation in languages. Crews are also able to access news from home.

The crew have the option to bring and use their own devices, including laptops, smart phones, crew pc, and view news anywhere or anytime on the vessel’s internal network. Company news can also be delivered to vessels in the RSS way.

Over 100,000 articles are delivered to over 600 vessels on a daily basis.

John Angelis, IT manager Goldenport & OceanGold, explained: “We have chosen the EVO News service by Marpoint in order to provide daily news from home to our seafarers. Our company shows commitment to its workforce by adopting practices to assure crew’s satisfaction and well-being. Crew Welfare solutions, such Evo RSS News, are related to the respect of seafarers’ rights with regard to working and living conditions on board. Keeping crew informed and entertained can boost job satisfaction and morale and make seas much more relaxed & enjoyable.”{/mprestriction}
