Star Information Systems (SIS) has signed a major retrofit and newbuild software contract with Color Line AS. The Color Line contract covers the installation of new-generation shipboard software for improved fleet management on nine existing ships. Application and database server software are installed at Color Line's computer center in Oslo with on line direct access from the vessels through a terminal server and VSAT satellite communication. The contract also includes what is reported to be the world's largest cruise ferry that is set to replace Prinsesse Ragnhild on the Oslo-Kiel service as of December 2004. Color Line holds an option for a second ship built to the same standard. Color Line and SIS are currently working on the data structure and conversion process for the first Star IPS system retrofit onboard the "Petter Wessel." Re-structuring data is a key operation in the implementation process for this ves- sel. Application and database server software are installed at Color Line's computer center in Oslo with on line direct access from the vessels through a terminal server and VSAT satellite communication.
