GAC-SMHI launches new Fleetweb system

GAC-SMHI launches new Fleetweb system

Singapore: GAC-SMHI Weather Solutions (a strategic alliance between GAC and the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute) today announced the launch of Fleetweb 3.0, the latest version of its web-based application, which allows shipping operators to monitor and control fleet performance 24/7 to achieve greater operational and cost efficiency.

"This latest version is more than just an upgrade. It is a complete makeover that overshadows previous releases," says Global Product Development Manager Lennart Cederberg, who oversees the software development team. "In today's challenging economic climate, this is one tool that fleet managers have been dreaming of. Fuel, time, costs and vessel life - Fleetweb 3.0 helps users maximise them all."

According to a press statement by GAC, Fleetweb 3.0 and GAC-SMHI Weather Solutions' reliable weather services have been shown to help improve fleet control and efficiency as well as reduce bunker consumption by 5%-10%.

Accessible from virtually anywhere with an internet connection, the innovative web-based application gives operators a clear and real-time overview of the entire fleet, down to the analysis of each ongoing voyage, thus ensuring that every vessel performs at its best.

Fleetweb 3.0 is built on the new Microsoft Silverlight system architecture, providing an easy-to-use, innovative, intuitive and stable user interface that permits ultimate control over all fleet operations.

This version introduces new features currently not available elsewhere in the market. Ship operators seeking ways to better manage their resources can benefit from the enhanced functionalities, including Voyage Management, Performance Reporting, Sat C Polling positions and AIS data and Visualisations.  [03/04/09]
