KVH Industries, Inc. (KVHI) has introduced Videotel Performance ManagerTM, to enhance crew training and performance. The solution aims to to help increase operational efficiency and safety, by providing insights about fleets’ training activities.
The cloud-based software platform ensures that a crew’s latest training records are accessible from any web-enabled device, and interactive reports and dashboards present data on crew performance, skill levels, strengths, weaknesses, and training schedules.
Key features include:
- Crew Management – for managing seafarers’ training programmes as they move from vessel to vessel
- Training Reports – for seeing what training is being carried out, where, and by whom, and for generating evidence of compliance required during an external audit or ship inspection
- Schedule Builder – for creating training plans for seafarers based on an established safety management system
- Performance Monitoring – for tracking progress of crew against a recommended schedule of training
“The ability to quickly see the training status of all seafarers in a fleet provides important advantages for a maritime training manager,” says Mark Woodhead, KVH senior vice president, EMEA. “With an easy-to-use dashboard, the manager can assess the precise level of a crew’s training, preparation, and compliance, which ultimately helps to keep operating costs low, and reduce safety and financial risk.”
Videotel Performance Manager is available in three different packages, called Essential, Professional, and Master, that vary in the number of features and training titles provided. All packages include Crew Management, Training Reports, Schedule Builder, and Performance Monitoring.
