Customers of VSAT and satellite communications can start to expect greater flexibility and lower costs, according to GMC, an expert VSAT and satellite communications company. GMC recently spoke with Yachting Pages to give their appreciation to their customers they met throughout 2014. According to GMC, many of their customers would definitely have noticed that broadband procurement has changed in the past five or so years. GMC explained how, where once users were forced to pay thousands of pounds a month for a basic service with lengthy contract terms, today many see far greater flexibility and lower costs.
Costas Charalambous, sales director at GMC said, “Firstly we would like to thank all those who meet us at some of the major yacht shows GMC attended such as Dubai, Antibes, Cannes, Monaco, Florida, Amsterdam and Antigua together with the many social events including the amazing Captains & Owners Soiree in Monaco aboard the White Rose of Drachs. “Whilst we thoroughly enjoy socialising at such events, we also appreciate the opportunity it affords us to explain our customer focused philosophy, founded as it is in the basis of GMC being created by yacht owners for yacht owners.”
GMC fully understand their client’s specific technical needs and despite their ability to create bespoke solutions for almost any scenario, it has been known for GMC to recommend another supplier’s product if that is the right thing to do to precisely satisfy the customer’s need.
Costas went on to say, “Whether we are talking to owners, captains, management companies or technical partners, our mission is simple, to find the solution that exactly matches the client’s needs.”
Broadband at sea has evolved in the same period, from something resembling a novelty, to a luxury and now to a necessity without which few serious operators can function.
