  1. 1. Singapore, Wednesday,16 September 2009 Thome Ship Management (Thome) has entered an agreement with Teledata Marine Solutions to become the launch customer for TMS’ Holistic Maritime Training Platform (HMT). TMS’ HMT platform was launched only on 2 September 2009. In the short time since, Thome has entered an agreement to become the launch customer for HMT. With this agreement, Thome continues its pioneering and innovative spirit and the speed with which it entered the agreement reflects its continuing commitment to remain at the forefront of the shipping industry. TMS’ HMT platform was conceived in response to the two pressing needs of today’s maritime enterprises: the need for consolidation of the many professional and safety courses on ships and ashore, and the need to align training to performance bench-marking in the organization. TMS’ HMT platform brings in a set of unique features:  A dedicated version for users on ships.  Advanced use of technology – a quantum leap from the days of videos and power points.  Exclusive offline and online access to course library by fleet personnel.  Online, anytime-anywhere access available to ships and fleet personnel on leave or ashore.  Huge cost-savings in the logistics of current training arrangements.  Intelligent training management or related MIS.  Quick and seamless integration with company-specific and custom-built training programs. “TMS, therefore brings several benefits to Thome,” says Captain Himanshu Joshi, President, Teledata Marine Systems Pte Ltd. He adds that HMT provides Thome with: Thome Ship Management is the launch customer for Teledata Marine Solutions’ Holistic Maritime Training Platform

TMS’ Holistic Maritime Training Platform meets our requirements and is a great tool in meeting the need for a company-wide standard.” He further added: “By studying and learning through this platform, our employees will be able to achieve new knowledge which they can apply in the work place. Inevitably, some employees will get more out of the modules than others, but over time we will lift the bar to a new, common height and ensure no- one falls through the cracks. Through TMS’ Holistic Maritime Training Platform, we will be able to deliver a more consistent service as an organization. We are happy to be its launch customer and we are certain it will bring much growth and value-add to our operations.” About Thome: Thome Ship Management is recognized as one of the world’s leading independent international ship managers.
