DUALOG AIMS TO BRING SHIP AND SHORE CLOSER TOGETHER

DUALOG AIMS TO BRING SHIP AND SHORE CLOSER TOGETHER

Wednesday, December 1, 2021 

Maritime software provider Dualog has called on shipowners and managers to embrace the integrated ship as part of their business processes, which the company sees as offers major challenges in standardising and being able to efficiently share data.

As a result, the company says it has invested more than €5m in developing new software which will enable shipowners and managers to implement their digital strategies in a maritime cloud environment. To further support the increasing demand for implementing the new digital solutions, Dualog has strengthened the organisation and employed Ingolf Sætrevik to head up the push into this area. Sætrevik joins Dualog from Marlink where he was Director of Maritime IT Solutions for Northern Europe.

Dualog CEO, Morten Lind-Olsen, said: "The integrated ship is becoming a reality faster than expected - partly boosted by the global pandemic. By hiring Ingolf Sætrevik, we are strengthening the dialogue with ship owners, ship managers and other stakeholders about the options and benefits open to them.”

Sætrevik added: “There’s an increasing awareness about transparency, accountability and reporting. You have to be able to actually tell exactly what’s going on within the confines of your ship, what are the audits and the tracks of what's going on.”

The appointment follows the recent integration with the cloud-based file-sharing tool Microsoft Sharepoint. Dualog Drive is built to simplify the distribution and replication of documents, data, software updates, IoT data and large files between ship and shore.

Lind-Olsen added: “We have had quite a close look at the IMO 2021 cyber security recommendations as we have created our new solutions.”
