Airbus Defence and Space launches SkyFile Mail Manager to improve email account and traffic management capabilities for maritime

Airbus Defence and Space has launched SkyFile Mail Manager, the latest addition to its SkyFile messaging portfolio. Designed to improve management of SkyFile Mail traffic and user accounts, SkyFile Mail Manager, as the latest value added service to work on the Aurora Global network, is a new online tool that provides IT management efficiency on board and ashore.

The new tool provides detailed reporting and control of all accounts and features flexible user rights and ship/fleet grouping options, which makes it easier and efficient to manage email traffic. With this new tool, users can check required account information such as call-logs and view vessel activity all from the same place.

According to Airbus Defense and Space, with its new product:
•IT Managers can easily ensure that the master is using the most cost-efficient terminal for mail traffic and further cost savings can be enjoyed through the innovative Quarantine function, that ensures unwanted messages are filtered by the system and stored on the SkyFile server. These can either be deleted or pushed to the vessel if needed.
•SkyFile Mail Manager’s grouping function provides an easy way to configure and monitor a group of ships or fleets. Templates can be applied to one or more fleets, one or more vessels or one or more mail accounts. For example, users can set specific mailbox filters which are then automatically applied to one or more vessels.
•Account information is easy to access online at any time and from anywhere. IT Managers based on shore can view all account settings and traffic, in addition to sub-accounts by category (MyMail/prepaid, private, corporate) or emails in the waiting list.

The new SkyFile Mail Manager tool is the latest offering under the new AuroraGlobal initiative of Airbus Defence and Space, launched in the first quarter of this year. With AuroraGlobal the company provides a global multi-band network, offering the full choice of satcom-enabled solutions on Ku-, Ka-, C-, L- and X-band. Value added services such as SkyFile Mail and Mail Manager are seamlessly integrated into the AuroraGlobal network, complementing shipping companies’ needs for sophisticated messaging and administrations applications.
