Telaccout Overseas Ltd. completes service portfolio with shipznet
Reinbek/Limassol, 6th March 2014: Telaccount Overseas Ltd., one of the leading accounting authorities and satellite communication service providers, has selected shipznet in order to complete their service portfolio with the leading global mobile 3G service for users onboard vessels.
shipznet, a revolutionary development of bobz GmbH, is the only high speed mobile network service in merchant shipping, that offers a world-wide monthly flat rate near-shore and in ports, without any additional roaming costs.
Adonis Violaris, Managing Director of Telaccount Overseas said that shipznet offers an ideal addition to their portfolio that can provide connectivity near coast to complement the commercial as well as the crew internet connection needs of the vessels. With shipznet the crew do not need to purchase data cards from the agents, there are no roaming charges and the speed provided can reach up to 40 times the speed currently offered on FleetBroadband.
shipznet consists of a very small above-deck unit with two antennas and guarantees easy installation. The below-deck unit serves as router and power supply for the above deck unit. shipznet complements legacy L-band services, in order to overcome high volume data transfer costs, as well as low transfer rates.
With the shipznet crew solution, the buying and collecting of individual pre-paid SIM cards for each country finally comes to an end. Expiry dates, varying volumes, an extra pre-paid card for each country – all of this was yesterday. The new crew solution of bobz GmbH offers the crew a comfortable way of communicating with family and friends, by using vouchers. Should the contingent be used up, it can be recharged conveniently with the shipping company or the Master, without the time consuming search of a local provider for pre-paid SIM cards. Also, these providers are not always available when needed.
“With Telaccount Overseas, we have won a well-established and recognized company as our distributor. We are convinced that this partnership is a big step forward to further market shipznet succesfully.” says Claudia Bobzin, Managing Director of bobz GmbH.
Demands of today’s shipping industry for communication have increased immensely. But the infrastructure of communication has hardly adapted to these new demands within recent years. With shipznet, bobz GmbH creates a world-wide, very cost-effective solution for communication and supports shipping companies with reducing their communication costs.
