The AMOS platform will manage the line's major assets and will be centrally controlled with 24/7 access to key operations and data.
This will provide a dynamic and efficient operation for maintenance, materials, procurement, logistics, quality, dry-dock and hotel defect management.
Fresh take on cruising
Roddy MacLennan, ceo for the Cruise Business Unit at SpecTec, said: ‘In the same way Virgin Voyages will deliver a ship which offers a fresh take on cruising, our road map for the ongoing digital innovation of AMOS will ensure their ships are always best-equipped with technology fit for the future.’
The AMOS platform will boast a dynamic user interface, mobile applications and web-based solutions that form part of an intuitive user experience. The system can be used on tablets and other mobiles devices on independent platforms that can operate offline.
‘Hosted in the cloud, AMOS can also be integrated so our customers can always benefit from connecting to the latest technology, onboard and ashore,’ MacLennan added.
With ongoing growth of the cruise market and improvements in what can be achieved through technology, AMOS ensures ship operators can maximise safety, enhance operational efficiency and meet with regulatory requirements while providing a first-class crew and guest experience.
‘Our technology integration with SpecTec is focused on pioneering the next generation of digital solutions for not just Virgin Voyages, but the cruise industry as a whole,’ said Jim Craig, technical director of fleet operations at Virgin Voyages.
Craig added, ‘It is our goal to arm our crew with the most advanced and efficient technology in order to streamline process and procedures, ensuring the highest quality of safety and service for our sailors.’
Virgin Voyages is building four new cruise ships at Fincantieri for delivery between 2020 and 2023.
