How can Oversee help you?

Improve situational awareness

  • Live traffic information is integrated from multiple sources to provide an integrated picture, including GMDSS distress alerts, weather information and resource position and status
  • Dashboards provide the ‘at-a-glance’ status of the coordination centre and of the operational readiness of available resources
  • Alarms and risk algorithms provide early warning of potential distress situations

Improve incident response times

  • Incoming GMDSS alerts result not only in the identification of the vessel that triggered the alert to be displayed, but also their full details and map position
  • Emergency telephone calls are automatically logged and the caller ID captured, with the call location immediately displayed on the map
  • Integrated vessels and contacts databases allow operators to quickly search for and identify a particular vessel or contact and initiate communications immediately
  • Closest available resources with the appropriate capabilities to respond to an incident can be immediately identified and tasked straight from the map, e.g. via a paging system
  • Integrated search planning tools

Improve risk awareness and management

  • Statistical reports help managers identify risk factors and behaviour, to develop preventive strategies
  • Risk algorithms provide an early warning that a vessel may be overdue
  • Alarms can be manually configured to trigger when dangerous conditions and risk behaviours are detected by the system

Optimise costs

  • A “swiss army knife” information system natively performs the function of many different legacy systems in a fully-integrated way, optimising operator performance
  • Statistical reports help managers identify geographic hotspots and seasonal spikes in the occurrence of incidents in order to optimise future staff allocation
  • Greater digitisation of the coordination centre eliminates or greatly reduces the need for paper records

Better co-ordination between centres and on-scene units

  • A single access point for all information, for all centres, for all authorized roles in the organisation
  • Remote, mobile access supported by an intuitive, web-based user interface
  • SITREPs, dashboards, log entries and other records can easily by exported as PDF files or emailed directly

Improve inter-agency cooperation

  • Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and a high-throughput data distribution system facilitate interoperability and information exchange between agencies

Monitor efficiency and effectiveness

  • The business intelligence and reporting module provides interactive dashboards that managers can use to explore data and perform statistical analysis
  • Performance of individual coordination centres and declared resources can be tracked against KPIs to identify areas that need improvement

Tailored to the needs of your organisation

  • The modular set of features can be selected and configured to bespokely suit the particular needs of your organisation
