Vancouver’s TraceSafe has signed a two-year wearable technology agreement with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines.
Founded in 1848, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines employs more than 2,000 people from around the globe and offers smaller, intimately-sized cruise holidays. The United Kingdom-headquartered cruise line is the latest to be connected to TraceSafe as the cruising world looks to reopen in 2021.
In January TraceSafe announced the formation of a strategic Cruise Ship and Hospitality Advisory Council to establish best practice protocols and product innovations for the specific benefit of cruise lines.
In March TraceSafe announced that they have signed a multi-year technology agreement with a global tier-1 transportation firm to enhance guest experiences for years to come.
As Fred. Olsen Cruise lines returns to cruising, TraceSafe will support the cruise line’s health and safety protocols for guests and crew. The new partnership will see TraceSafe’s intelligent wearable technology initially deployed on three of Fred Olsen’s ships: Borealis, Balmoral, and Bolette.
“By partnering with TraceSafe, we are able to ensure our guests have the safest possible return to cruising. This investment in innovative technology also ensures we continue to enhance the future of cruise safety for our guests,” notes Damon Impett, Director of IT with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines.
With over 15 million contacts per day, TraceSafe’s cloud processing can facilitate contact tracing for even the world’s largest enterprise – and its unique wearables are built with low energy connectivity, making them a perfect choice for environments such as cruise lines.
“We are excited to be working collaboratively with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines to deploy our health & safety technology. Our solution is uniquely designed to meet even the most complex of guidelines, such as contact tracing 15 minutes accumulative in any 24 hour period,” said Susanne MacKillop, Vice President Sales at TraceSafe.
“Our goal is to provide seamless guest experiences — all while meeting the health and safety requirements needed for cruise lines as they return to sailing.”
