KVH Videotel™ has named Capt. Milind Karkhanis as sales director for the Middle East to develop business in this strategically important maritime location. Capt. Karkhanis has more than 40 years’ experience in the maritime industry, including 15 years at sea on tankers, bulk carriers, and containerships; on shore, he worked in Mumbai and Hong Kong in ship manning, operations, and management roles, and then in maritime training when he joined Videotel in 2005, based in the London office. Capt. Karkhanis has recently relocated to Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

“I am looking forward to servicing our current clients in the region and expanding our operations to new clients who are based in this part of the world,” says Capt. Karkhanis. “With the launch of Videotel Performance Manager last month, we have an exciting platform for optimising crew training, designed to help ship owners and managers effectively train their seafarers and maintain records as required by the IMO and ILO.”

The scope of Videotel Performance Manager™ includes award-winning training content combined with an advanced cloud-based software platform and tools for analytics.

The full range of KVH Videotel offerings includes AgilePlans™ by KVH, an advanced satellite communications solution that brings connectivity as a service to commercial fleets without a costly capital expenditure or long-term commitment. Included in AgilePlans is KVH’s IP-MobileCast™ content delivery service, which multicasts training programmes to crew onboard without using vessels’ valuable monthly airtime data plans. IP-MobileCast also delivers news, entertainment, and operations content.

“Being able to offer the full suite of more than 950 new and updated Videotel training titles coupled with a cost-effective connectivity solution ensuring crew are entertained and fully trained onboard is an unbeatable combination,” says Capt. Karkhanis, who can be contacted on +971(0)505003797,
