Advice and design
ICT is a critical factor in practically all operations in the maritime sector. Technology is being developed at a rapid pace. Therefore, it is good to have a partner who works with you on new ideas. Watum knows all the ‘ins and outs’ of maritime ICT. Watum is not affiliated with any certain brands or suppliers. Watum is an independent and professional advisor. Watum provides tailored advice, always focusing on your specific situation and your ship, your objectives and what you desire or require for your crew and passengers. Nothing more, nothing less.

Maritime IT infrastructure and solutions are becoming increasingly more complex. This often makes it difficult for clients to properly evaluate the quality of designs and proposals by third parties. Watum provides the option for a 'second opinion'. Not because we know everything better than our colleagues, but because maximum reliability demands checks and double checks.
Maintenance and management
If desired, Watum will provide administrative and maintenance services for all ICT services on board. This means that you will no longer have to worry about your IT equipment and services. Watum will make sure that everything works as expected, now and in the future. What this service provided by Watum will look like precisely will depend on the complexity of your needs. It can range from periodic service and maintenance to sending IT staff to work on your ship, and everything in between.
Strategic ICT management is also an option, whereby Watum pro-actively advises you on the best way to keep your ICT systems aligned with your business objectives and new (technological) developments, and will act and negotiate with suppliers on your behalf.
