Inmarsat and Napa offer real time data analysis

London - Inmarsat and Napa have signed an agreement to enable ship owners and ship managers to access and analyse real-time onboard data

London - British telecommunications company Inmarsat and Napa, the leading provider of maritime software, services and data analysis, have signed an agreement to enable ship owners and ship managers to access and analyse real-time onboard data more efficiently through a dedicated application hosted on Inmarsat’s new Fleet Data IoT service.

Research published last year by Inmarsat on digital transformation in shipping indicated that, on average, ship operators and managers plan to spend $2.5 million on IoT-based solutions within three years and expect average IoT-driven cost savings of 14% over the next five years.

“We are delighted that Napa will be our first certified application provider for Fleet Data. This partnership and the Napa application will help overcome key difficulties faced by those frustrated with the challenge of aggregating vessel data on-board and getting it efficiently onshore to improve fuel optimisation,” said Stefano Poli, vice president of Business Development at Inmarsat Maritime.
