Navatom uses modern cloud technologies to bridge maritime vessels to their managers in real-time. The simultaneous connection to the same data source leads to increased data quality and usage in the platform. Navatom has proprietary technologies that ensure a stable connection with various satellite communication systems used onboard today's maritime vessels.
Most if not all ship management software on the market requires you to install a service, software, or run a specific service at your headquarters or onboard your vessels. The most significant pain point of this structure is managing these installed software and computer systems. 90% of problems occur on the hardware level on this type of legacy ship management software. Maintenance is complex with the global nature of the industry.
Navatom, on the other hand, is the only genuinely fully cloud-based software as a service system. Where installation, maintenance, or upgrade is handled automatically by Navatom "as a service." All of your ships and employees connect directly to Navatom's enterprise-grade, reliable, and secure cloud architecture in real-time.
SaaS customers do not need to buy, install, maintain, or update software or hardware. Access is easy. All you need is an internet connection.
Navatom runs on a multitenant architecture that enables all users to have the latest features, rules, guides kept up to date within Navatoms databases in the cloud.
All users access the same data from any networked device. You don't need to consider synchronization or other data problems when making changes to your data. All users are on the same version of the software and data, making it easier to implement new procedures and features.
The primary cost-saving factor in the cloud is the removal of hardware requirements from the stack. As genuine cloud software doesn't require you to install, upgrade or maintain any hardware in your headquarters or onboard your vessels, you will immediately save on hardware, software installation, and IT maintenance.
Cybersecurity is a trending topic in the maritime industry. Navatom partners with some of the best cloud hosts in the market. The full-time job of a cloud host is to monitor the security and availability of their systems. Navatom is also audited and inspected by third-party vendors for safety and reliability against malicious attacks. Since all users are always on the latest version of the software, they also use the latest available security updates.
It's common to see crew walking around with phones running Navatom or superintendents doing audits with tablets running Navatom. Traveling employees and crew members on leave can also get the latest info and contribute.
Most tasks in ship management are usually completed or overseen by one employee. Recurring tasks and solved issues are often archived and forgotten. Navatom contrarily offers true collaboration where multiple employees and crew can contribute to completing an operation, revising a procedure, or solving a problem.
Cloud-based services provide quick data recovery for all kinds of emergency scenarios, from natural disasters to power outages.
Within legacy ship management software, you alone are responsible for your data that resides in your office/ship computers and servers. You may not have experienced it yet, but computers and servers can malfunction because of malware, viral infections, or age-related hardware deterioration. However, with a cloud-based infrastructure, all the information you've uploaded to the cloud remains safe and easily accessible from any computer with an internet connection. Navatom also runs a point-in-time recovery system (that restores data to a specific time) runs in place, along with mirrored databases that back each other up in case of failures.
Navatom runs on multiple gateways and mirroring software and database servers simultaneously. On your side, Navatom is a singular entity that you can access through your browser. On the backend, Navatom is a sophisticated piece of software that automatically and virtually adapts to load and balances and scales automatically according to user needs.
