Vizada to Show New Crew, Business Solutions in China

(Press Release)
Tuesday, November 29, 2011


Vizada will showcase some of its newest updates and innovations in communications solutions for crew and optimization of business data at this year’s Marintec show in Shanghai (29 November - 2 December). Vizada and partner MCN-UK will be available at booth 3E 31-7, Hall W3 for the duration of the event. 
Eric Jan Bakker, Vizada’s Vice President of Sales for Asia-Pacific, shares a little about Vizada’s strategic presence at this tradeshow in China: “China is an integral part of Vizada’s intensified approach to the Asia market, which has important growth potential for Vizada’s services. A demanding market and general challenges surrounding the development of the Chinese maritime trade require a strong cooperation between partners like MCN-UK and Vizada.”
During this international maritime show, several maritime crew solutions will be highlighted including the recently-released Crew PC. The Crew PC is a pre-configured onboard PC which connects to a satellite data terminal to provide instant plug-&-play access to data communications such as email, chat and internet access. The services run over a dedicated prepaid channel which keeps crew usage secure and separate from business communications on board. Crew members benefit from a solution to reduce prepaid costs while the shipping company can securely monitor and control usage. In just a few short weeks since the launch, Vizada has deployed over 50 Crew PCs with more than five different shipping companies and has many more orders lined up for the near future. 
With the commercial success of Vizada XChange, the integrated solutions platform launched this year, Marintec China is an ideal opportunity to present its version 2 to customers in the Asia Pac region. The all-in-one solution platform that provides voice, VoIP, data and internet services through an easily installed multifunctional box and intuitive web interface will offer several new features to improve general user experience and cost efficiency. To meet the increasing demand for remote maintenance, the new version will offer shipping companies a user-friendly portal on shore to supervise communications or manage critical documents transfer to ships directly from the office on land. Vizada XChange version 2 will also enable IT managers to remotely access their onboard infrastructure via a secure connection as well as giving captains a redesigned communications dashboard. Automatic connectivity switching will help detect the most cost-efficient means of communication to help further reduce connection costs.
