Airbus Defence & Space launches upgraded XChange3.2
Airbus Defence and Space has released a new remote user account management functionality for its XChange communications management platform to reduce the amount of time spent shipboard for the management of crew accounts.

Using the new offline management functionality introduced in XChange version 3.2, any changes made to crew accounts shoresside are automatically synchronised with a vessel’s on board user accounts database.

“We’ve noticed a growing requirement in the market to reduce non-role specific administration burden for senior staff on board, such as topping up crew credit or adding new accounts,” said Tore Morten Olsen, head of maritime satcoms for Airbus Defence and Space.

“With remote user account management, the time a Master or other appointed officer needs to focus on administrating a vessel’s crew Internet accounts can be reduced, freeing them up to focus on their operational tasks.”

Airbus Defence and Space is exhibiting at Sea Asia 2015.
