Bandwidth at sea is limited and relatively expensive. The system tracks each seafarer’s usage and provides administrators with a complete overview from shore. The service allows managers (or the Master) to allocate a certain amount of free surfing data to everyone on board, and then grant or sell additional access if required. Rightly designed, the service can help ensure an optimal balance between crewing and business needs.
Easy internet access for crew
The modern seafarer expects access to internet services to stay up to date with current events and to stay in touch with family and friends back home. Paired with the award-winning CrewConnection™ App, you ensure a transparent and fair system where the individual crew member can keep track of their data allowance directly on their device.
Track data usage
It’s not unusual today to have seafarers bring along several devices, e.g. smartphone, tablet or a laptop. This is no problem as Dualog Quota tracks data usage across single and multiple devices and shows remaining allowance.
Easy to buy - easy to sell
Dualog Quota provides a self-service mechanism that makes it easy for seafarers to purchase more data if they want. If users are to pay for usage, then necessary information is available for deductions from salary, e.g. using the - slop chest method.
Strike the right balance
Dualog Quota makes it easy to allocate internet quota per user via a central web-based admin tool, either based on volume, time or with allowance set per day, week or month.
This type of control not only helps the most eager seafarers from using up the entire bandwidth available to them right away, but it will also help secure the right balance between business needs and crew welfare needs.
