Maritime software provider Dualog reports that it has added Microsoft Sharepoint integration capabilities to its Dualog Drive vessel data replication system.
Dualog Drive is purpose-built to support the distribution and replication of documents, data, software updates and large files between ship and shore. The company says that the integration with Sharepoint is the first in a series of new planned integrations with a range of cloud file-sharing tools, with Amazon AWS next to be integrated.
The latest release of the software will allow Sharepoint to be used as a source in any sync tasks. Configuration is done directly in the cloud, with security and access management handled directly in the Sharepoint administrative interface.
“Our goal with the new feature has been to make it even easier for shipping companies to implement their digital strategy,” said Kristian Olsen, Product Manager for Dualog Drive.
“With the newest integration, companies already using Microsoft Sharepoint as their corporate document sharing tool can simplify cross-departmental collaboration, ensure more up-to-date documentation across fleets and reduce the workload on IT personnel. At the end of the day, it’s all about improving your business performance.”
