Boatracs draws attention to a growing demand for its Fleet Management Software with over 2,000 vessels presently online.

The company says that BTConnect is the only fleet management platform to combine visual monitoring of vessel positions on an interactive map with location based two-way messaging and reporting, providing intelligence that enables owners and operators of offshore service, inland waterways, coastal workboat and commercial fishing fleets to run their companies more efficiently, safely and profitably.

BTConnect was launched to the maritime industry in North America as Boatracs’ next generation fleet management platform in early 2012, introducing a shore-side user interface that is web-based for flexible access to fleet-wide data from any computer, tablet or smart phone. The shore-side software was designed to improve efficiency with a single display that combines automated position reports with a host of other valuable features including route planning, map overlays, custom landmarks and historical vessel positions as well as two-way messages, logs and reports that include detailed vessel position information on all ship to shore communications. An optional vessel side application is also available with a simple user interface for captains to receive and send messages and logs to facilitate collecting critical vessel data.

“BTConnect is an outstanding product for managing our liftboats,” said W.D. ‘Butch’ Bazer, Operations Manager for the Liftboat Division of Aries Marine. “The software is very easy to navigate and the mobile access to fleet information is fantastic. The ability to log on from any computer or phone to see accurate vessel positions, messages and logs in real time greatly improves my visibility into fleet operations. We love the new application and use it every day to manage our boats more efficiently!”

BTConnect supports hardware on the OmniTRACS, AIS, KVH mini-VSAT and Iridium satellite networks. Boatracs is one of the few companies serving the maritime industry that provides both software and satellite communications hardware. That unique perspective has driven software development optimized for maritime communications networks by utilizing data compression and least cost routing to minimize data transmission costs.
