Maritime data analysis, software and services provider NAPA, and marine electronics equipment and solutions provider FURUNO, have agreed to enter a partnership designed to support the digital progress of the global maritime fleet.
The parties have integrated NAPA Performance Monitoring and NAPA Logbook software with FURUNO hardware to offer a market-ready data logging and reporting solution using data signals already present onboard.
“This partnership offers a step forward into the Big Data era for ship owners, operators and managers with Internet of Things data-collection, electronic logging, and ship-shore and data-centre communications,” the companies said.
The services offered will use existing FURUNO hardware and satellite communication solutions to support data-driven streamlining of operations, through business intelligence and boosting vessel performance, crew productivity and shore operation.
The two data-led platforms offered form the basis of NAPA’s Shipping Solutions, designed to optimise vessel efficiency, safety, and enhance productivity both on-board and for shore based offices.
