Ocean Technologies Group joins Marlink’s Partner Programme

Marlink has partnered with Ocean Technologies Group to add the Ocean Learning Platform to its Application Partner Programme.

Powered by two of the best-known and respected names in maritime e-learning, Seagull and Videotel, the platform combines advanced features for in-work assessment, competency management and career development with a media-rich blended-learning library to cover every knowledge area required by today’s mariner.

It also enables its users to extend and personalise their experience and communicate their company values with content authoring and publishing tools. In-platform pulse surveys can be used to temperature check the well-being and engagement of personnel.

The Application Partner Programme enables selected solution providers to optimise their services for delivery via Marlink’s application management platform and enjoy streamlined and secure delivery of data and resources without the need for USB sticks or CD-ROMs.

By leveraging Marlink’s application management platform, the learning experience onboard ship is enhanced, allowing on demand content updates and a continuous flow of information for seamless data capture with minimal administration for the crew. This delivers the benefits of always-on, cloud-based delivery whilst maximising the efficient use of bandwidth and ensuring availability of the service with minimal risk of disruptions.

Johan Gustafsson, Chief Revenue Officer Ocean Technologies Group, said:

"Shipping companies are safety critical, high reliability organisations dependent on a remote workforce and in a heavily regulated environment, they need to ensure crews are adequately trained and equipped to perform and able to evidence this when required. Our platform makes it possible to plan, execute and monitor a wide range of learning and assessment activities in a single cloud-based system for easy management, analytics and reporting."

Nicolas Furgé, President, Digital, Marlink, said:

"The Application Partner Programme is a great example of how Marlink is leveraging its hybrid network to advance digitalisation in the maritime sector, supporting smarter, safer and more efficient vessel operations. The Ocean Learning Platform provides our customers with even more options to access the training and competence management materials they need, enabling their crews to stay compliant and support their personal development."
