IT consulting with many years of shipping know-how

Waterway IT has its roots in the maritime sector and has accompanied the rapid development of smart shipping. Our IT consulting service involves discussing IT solutions with you that optimally address your challenges and are tailored exactly to your goals, your resources, the existing infrastructure and your budget. We develop future-proof IT solutions for you. And the immediate aim need not be an autonomously navigating container ship!               

As shipping specialists, we are more familiar with shipboard IT issues than many others. We have already planned and realised numerous complex maritime projects, ranging from better management of a vessel’s IT infrastructure to the digital transformation of an entire fleet. Our concepts are reliable and have a proven record of success.

We support you with this unique expertise in all your IT projects, including:

  • implementation of secure remote connections to specific ship systems,
  • implementation of new IT rules and regulations in documentation,
  • rollout planning of IT and communication systems.

The issue of cyber security is also growing in importance. We can advise you on how to reduce risks and meet IMO 2021 guidelines.

Competent planning, rapid implementation.

More than just planning: Waterway IT completely implements planned measures.
Hardware installation occurs onside or remotely if a vessel visit is not possible. This means that hardware is delivered on board, with the crew installing the components according to precise instructions and in direct coordination with Waterway. This saves you valuable time and additional expense. Discover the advantages of our Waterway Core IT platform.

Our experts oversee your shipboard IT infrastructure to ensure that all processes on your ship function stably. You can find out more about IT support and managed services here.
