The embarked IT devices must match a very strict set of specifications as well as facing very specific operating constraints.
It’s these same IT devices that manage ship’s communications and therefore must be able to communicate without problems with satellite transmission systems, designed, installed and maintained by different technical services.
It’s also this administrative network that manages the CMMS* and / or certification, or stability software; and it is again this network that stores and transmits the commercial and / or call documents, allowing these calls to to be conducted in the best conditions and in the shortest time.
Nowadays, a computer problem has a direct impact on all these aspects, and may have, directly or indirectly, very important financial consequences. Moreover, recent studies show that the quality of service of the embarked administrative computer network has significant repercussions on crew stress.
In order well understand all aspects of these problems, it's absolutely necessary to have, in addition of a perfect control of all aspects of modern computing, a knowledge constantly updated of technical developments of materials, components, software and peripherals as well as new methodologies and procedures. These skills can only be acquired by field experience confronted daily to management, maintenance and evolution of these issues.
However, it is difficult for ship-owners or technical management teams, to have internally these skills, essential to define the most relevant specifications and / or to evaluate the solutions proposed to meet these specifications.
Therefore COMPUSHIPS proposes to assist you from the design of an embarked computer system, whether to equip a new ship, or replace an obsolete network. Of course, COMPUSHIPS can also assume technical support to follow the installation on shipyard.
Note: COMPUSHIPS's experience in this field, allows not only seamless integration of the various systems which require to communicate with each others, but also substantial money savings by selecting the best quality / cost of ownership of these equipments, as well as the limitation of design errors or late finding of some incompatibility.
