Introducing a new digital platform for certificate management

03.05.2019

We are happy to announce that we have entered a partnership with the digital startup company C-LOG. The cooperation with C-LOG means, FURUNO will soon be able to offer our customers and certificate holders access to an online certificate management platform.

C-LOG is a fast-growing startup focusing on enabling dynamic, transparent and secure data collaboration among stakeholders in the maritime industry.

The cooperation with C-LOG means, FURUNO will soon be able to offer our customers and certificate holders access to an online certificate management platform, where they securely can access a validated, digital image, print and administrate their certificates - anytime.

Jens Rulle, Head of FURUNO Maritime Training states:

“The maritime business is undergoing a fast accelerating digital transformation and there is an increasing demand for easyly accessible and consolidated digital solutions. This platform is, in our opinion, a modern,  digital, and user-friendly platform that highly optimizes the handling and control of maritime documentation, which we are convinced will be of great value to our customers”.

The platform is based on block-chain technology and a common recognized standard for security, privacy shields (GDPR compliant), and course verification aiming to join training providers, shipping companies and authorities.

“This platform will increase the transparency regarding certificate management to both Navigators, Ship Owners/Managers, and validating authorities as Port State Control etc. – all in a controlled, secure and verified digital solution”, says Jens Rulle and concludes:

“We look forward to cooperating with C-LOG and to implement this digital certificate management platform in the near future”.
