A zero admin crew email solution
Dualog® Crew Email is an email system tailored for maritime use. This service provides private email accounts for individual crew members regardless of the communication equipment onboard. Crew details are updated and distributed automatically from the Crew Management System to all vessels – this is a zero administration solution.
To save data, email is only sent to the ship if the crew member is registered on board.
Whenever a crew member is on leave (at home or elsewhere) or finds Internet access in a port, his / her private email is globally accessible at Dualog's Customer Portal.
This is a key feature that enables the crew accounts to roam between ships without requiring the messages to be downloaded to all the ships in the fleet.
The email account follows the crew member wherever he / she is and represents a convenient single point of contact for family, friends and his / her employer.
Dualog® Crew Email takes advantage of all communication features in Connection Suite to provide maximum access while minimising cost.
