The Problem

While the world becomes ever more reliant on the ability to be in constant contact, the maritime industry is being left behind.

On-board Mobile and satellite calls can be prohibitively expensive, and swallow up precious bandwidth.
Crew contact with family and friends is a key factor in staff motivation but the cost of calls can stop this happening.
Existing apps sometimes can’t call landlines, or require a similar app to be installed by the recipient…

The Solution

We’ve developed a simple, but powerful app that allows crew to call landlines and mobiles in over 100 countries at low cost from wifi enabled ships.

The app is free to download, call costs are incredibly competitive, crew top-up credit from their own debit and credit cards and only pay for the calls they make.
Our pricing structure is flat – you pay the same rate to call a country from wherever you make the call. This means the same rate to say, the USA, whether you call from a hotel in the UK, a vessel in the Pacific or a Platform in The Gulf of Mexico.
