"In this difficult period, having a reliable cost effective solution onboard is vital for our business. As the IT Manager of Danaos, I know that reliable ship-shore connectivity is key! Through Vizada XChange, I can control and monitor the on board IT infrastructure remotely. If this can be combined with Crew Welfare solutions, such as Crew PC, you can increase your business. And with Vizada XChange you can." states Vassilis Fotinias, IT Manager, Danaos.
