Navarino launches communications platform, Waavia 7

Navarino has launched a new application for maritime users that unifies real-time corporate communications under a single platform. The application, Waavia 7, instantly connects every member of an organisation, no matter where they are.

Waavia 7 has been designed for shipping companies that require advanced tools designed specifically to support unique maritime operations. Waavia 7 allows ship operators to establish a company-wide, instant messaging and communications network that offers complete control over company data. Much more than just another instant messaging platform, Waavia 7 has been designed for the 7 seas from the ‘waaves’ up, to meet the actual day to day needs of ship operators.

Accessed as an application on smartphones and desktops, Waavia 7 allows for seamless deployment. The technology can be easily rolled out to an entire organisation with a few clicks, adding a totally independent instant communications network to the existing connectivity setup. What’s more, when a visitor attends a vessel, Waavia 7 offers a Visitor Mode, which allows third parties to easily join the Waavia 7 messaging groups to communicate with vessels they attend, while all data exchanged with visitors remains under the control of the ship operator.

Waavia 7 offers optimised low bandwidth video calling that works smoothly over high latency satellite networks, so when connectivity is limited, Waavia 7 adapts to ensure calls continue. The technology is also compatible with any connectivity provider.

Waavia 7’s features also work seamlessly with the latest technologies. The application is fully compatible with smart glasses, connecting onshore experts with those at sea using real time telepresence for remote inspections and troubleshooting. Moreover, its advanced chat features are designed to enhance the traditional communication experience – for example, users can send alert messages that must be acknowledged, providing senders with confirmation that they have been received.  

Waavia 7 also benefits from a private cloud-based database that is powered by Amazon Web Services, keeping data secure, encrypted and private to each ship operator.
