PV–OnBoard Global integrates ocean-going vessels into award-winning PortVision platform
Houston, TX - April 22, 2008 - PortVision, a leading provider of information solutions for the maritime industry, announced today the release of PV-OnBoard Global, a value-added service allowing PortVision users to integrate long-range vessel tracking (LRIT) directly within the web-based PortVision platform. PV-OnBoard Global is the latest addition to the PV-OnBoard product line, which already allows barges, intermodal containers, railcars, and trailers to be tracked and managed along with AIS-enabled vessels from within the PortVision service.
“PV-OnBoard Global is the direct result of feedback we have received from customers,” said Dean Rosenberg, PortVision President and CEO. “Users are already leveraging PortVision to enhance visibility and management of vessels and terminals within ports and inland waterways. Now our customers can use the same powerful platform to maintain visibility even when their vessels are offshore.”
PV-OnBoard Global provides worldwide coverage for vessels at sea through satellite communications and the PortVision web-based platform. Vessels already using Inmarsat for GMDSS/SSAS can initiate PV-OnBoard Global tracking through PortVision without the need to procure additional hardware. Other users can enable PV-OnBoard through a satellite transmitter provided by PortVision.
