GTMaritime keeps business running with GTMailPlus.Continuity

16 April 2019 – GTMaritime launches GTMailPlus.Continuity, a web-based service that gives users access to emails even when end-to-end services ship-shore are offline, so that businesses can continue as usual


GTMaritime has added the Continuity as a standard feature of its GTMailPlus service for the shipping and offshore industries, allowing users to access emails with complete security, even when their systems are unexpectedly offline.

GTMailPlus.Continuity is a web-based service hosted within GTMaritime’s cloud infrastructure that will be offered as standard to users at no extra cost. The value-added solution allows password-protected customers to continue sending and receiving messages during any shipboard email outage, so that business can continue uninterrupted.

Last year, data storage giant DataCore Software Corporation suggested that more than half of companies (54%) had experienced a downtime event that lasted more than eight hours within the past five years.

“In a digital world, access to email is critical to keep businesses running and Continuity means users can send, receive and retrieve emails from anywhere and on any device, operating on a business as usual basis,” says Robert Kenworthy, CEO, GTMaritime. “As a cloud-based feature, Continuity doesn’t need extra hardware or software, while back-ups and synchronisation are automatic.

As an easy-to-manage auxiliary email client for the continuity of vessel operations that generates no additional cost, GTMailPlus.Continuity also provides disaster recovery capability providing access to historic as well as live emails. Length of storage will depend on the user’s archiving settings.
