Business Idea: “A Global Human Resource Solution” As well as providing the most advanced and adaptable system for comprehensive Human Resources Management on the market, our “unique business proposition” is premised on ensuring that HR and Payroll processes are coordinated between the head office and ships at sea, thus reducing the disruptive impact of geographical separation. It is precisely this distance between office and ship that has traditionally hampered efficient HR procedures for many maritime organizations. Costly and inefficient satellite-based Internet connections, which may be out of action at certain times of day
in some parts of the world, make it difficult to achieve efficient teamwork and smooth workflows between ships, local offices, and head office. With our solutions, shipping companies can connect with their ships as though they were ordinary local offices working within the same system, effectively eliminating geographical barriers. The “Adonis Solution” is based on a specially developed replication engine, which ensures that office and ship have synchronized data available at all times. The replication is configured to the frequency chosen by the customer -- many set it as low as every 15-30 minutes.
The actual exchange of data uses an automated e-mail or FTP service. If poor or non-existent Internet coverage means that the replication stops for a time, work on board will continue normally as the systems do not depend on on-line contact in order to function. As soon as the ship returns to an area with Internet coverage, synchronization between the databases on board and in the office is automatically initiated, so fresh data for all HR procedures is available at all times.
