The first phase of the strategic partnership will focus on developing a standardized application for Carnival's nine cruise line brands and set global data standards for a single asset management solution fleetwide. With global standardization, the company expects significant operational benefits including reduced operating costs and increased worker efficiencies on board and ashore.
Solidifies cruise sector dedication
'This partnership is monumental for SpecTec Cruise and truly solidifies our dedication to the cruise sector,' CEO Roddy MacLennan said.
SpecTec Cruise already has long-term business relationships with Carnival Corp. brands including Holland America Line, Princess Cruises, Cunard Line, Seabourn, P&O Cruises UK and P&O Cruises Australia. Under the new agreement, and working in close collaboration with all brands and their partners, SpecTec will deliver a fleetwide solution encompassing all of the company's ships.
Fleet rollout is expected to be completed by 2023.
Aligning the fleet
'Carnival Corporation is focused on aligning our fleet of more than 100 ships onto a single, global AMOS environment, which will enable us to unlock significant value across our technical assets through globalized data and aligned processes,' said Doug Frauenberger, director of MAST, Carnival Corp.
'SpecTec is the leading asset management solution provider in the cruise industry, and we look forward to building off the success our Holland America Group and Carnival UK brands have had using AMOS to deliver a robust solution to meet our unique business needs,' he added.
