Choosing a VDR System

The VDR (Vault Data Recordser) is an instrument that records voyage information from the sensors onboard a vessel. The devices store a variety of data, including the position, speed and depth of the vessel in various sea conditions. VDRs can withstand extreme weather, collisions, and even fire. VDRs are essentially the black box on aircrafts. The analysis of FDR data has proved to be crucial in decreasing the number of accidents caused by airlines. Analysis of VDR data is expected to lead to the reduction of maritime accidents.

When you're choosing a vdr-based system, look for the following features:

A user-friendly interface. A vdr must be intuitive and user-friendly on all devices to enable your team to look over the data anytime and wherever they need. It should also be compatible with a wide variety of screen resolutions, ensuring access on a variety of devices. Search for an interactive index structure that permits users to move folders and files around in real-time. A vdr will also allow the use of tags to organize documents over the normal folder structure.

Secure document storage. Look for a vdr that provides a variety of security options, including multi-factor authentication and encryption to prevent hacking attempts. It should also offer the option of saving and open encrypted files to protect the files during storage.

A reliable vdr system must have a backup server in case of a failure on the primary one. Ask the provider about their uptime and downtime, and then compare them with other providers on the market. Check if the provider offers an experienced support staff that is available to answer any questions at any time.
