gplink has announced a partnership with Wheelhouse Technologies, creating a comprehensive perspective on vessel upkeep through seamless integration to the Wheelhouse marine maintenance system.
 
Pleasure craft, commercial vessel, and fleet owners can now enjoy the benefits of real-time vessel monitoring, tracking and support, from gplink along with a simple and easy-to-use interface; charting the course to proper vessel maintenance, spare parts management, and document tracking.
 
Kenny Campbell, Wheelhouse National Sales Manager stated, “Wheelhouse makes it easy for owners and crew to stay on top of maintenance. Now we are able to take vessel protection to an entirely new level with gplink. The proven track record for both companies and immense demand for reliable maintenance logging and vessel tracking create a clear vision for the partnership’s budding services. This partnership will help vessel owners and managers effortlessly keep an eye on all of their assets.”
 
As found on Boston Harbor Cruises, New York City Ferries and pleasurecraft across the globe, the gplink Remote Monitoring system can be installed on virtually any engine, both electronic and mechanical via analog NMEA converters. Dozens of engine operating parameters can be monitored in near real-time and logged over a specific date range for building reports that can be downloaded into WheelHouse Underway; a tablet application for iOS, Android, and Windows devices. WheelHouse Underway expands the functionality of WheelHouse, which provides: vessel specifications, documentation, maintenance recommendations, and spare parts guidelines in a cloud-based application.

The gplink system inherits its reliable monitoring and tracking through utilizing dual band technology with GSM communications, as well as the Iridium satellite system for location tracking, monitoring, and emergency notification. By using both of these extensive networks, gplink can provide worldwide coverage, and ensure that connections are not only reliable but affordable too.
