Remote support can provide many benefits far beyond the cost savings of maintaining additional crew for IT support.

I have been working with Great Circle Systems since 2006 when they did the installation of all our networking and Internet communications equipment on our boat being built in Germany.

 

The equipment they recommended and installed was exactly as we required.  We have had extremely good results with all of their equipment and it has performed as they had advised.

 

I would highly recommend them to all fellow captains.
