Thomas Schulte Ship Management is to implement Port-IT’s Orilla Mail e-mail package to manage communication of messages with its vessel fleet following the agreement of a new deal between the companies.
Orilla Mail was developed as an independent shore-managed e-mail system by Port-IT, operating independently of any airtime provider. It includes an integrated web portal interface to allow application settings to be managed on a per vessel or per fleet basis, with crew e-mail included as standard.
The e-mail system is also fully integrated with Port-IT’s IRIS cyber security service, which scans all incoming attachments with a multitude of antivirus software packages, offering multi-engine scanning capabilities based on worldwide signature databases.
“The compatibility with all airtime providers on the market, together with the fact that Orilla Mail is an easy to use e-mail solution on both ends, both ashore and on board, are the main arguments why we decided to opt for Port-IT’s Orilla mail,” said Oliver Kautz, Quality Manager for TSM.
“Creating new mail addresses and setting up new Automatic File Transfers is as easy as writing an e-mail using the Port-IT Portal. Moreover, the software itself is easy to use for our crew on board.”
“We have chosen Port-IT as the provided service is great, Port-IT takes care of every problem we encounter and solves it really quickly. This ensures smooth communication and operation of our vessels. Custom-made features that were integrated upon request have made Orilla Mail a very well-tailored e-mail system, completely fitting our needs.”
