In conjunction with Uvea Marine Services (UMS), Norwegian-based maritime HR solutions provider Adonis will be implementing its maritime HR suite to run luxury cruise line Ponant’s crewing and payroll operations.
“The complexity of our global operations made it necessary for us to start looking for a brand new platform and technology for our crewing agent UMS,” explained François Vielfaure, Ponant’s Executive Vice President Marine Operations. “By choosing Adonis we are confident that we are entering the future together with a partner that fully understands our demands for reliable, efficient and cost-reducing systems.”
Ponant currently operates five high-end luxury cruise ships. The company has an expansive newbuilding programme to increase the number of vessels to nine by 2019.
“Being selected by Ponant after a rigorous evaluation process confirms that Adonis is continuing to meet the needs of today’s labour-intensive, demanding, and highly competitive maritime businesses,” said Sigrid Kviteberg, Adonis Project Director.
“Ponant and Adonis both enjoy reputations as innovators in their respective fields, which is why we’re so honoured to have been selected as their technology partner. We look forward to helping them streamline their existing fleet, and to a productive, long-term partnership to support their growth and continued innovation in the years ahead.”
