here for more details on the Cloud (online) Server.
Silverlight is compatible with the major web browsers used on Windows and Mac OS X operating systems, however it is not supported on Linux, Android, Windows RT and iPad devices and therefore the Cloud eBooks use an HTML site in these instances. The HTML site is more restricted than the Silverlight version.
Customers have the option of accessing eBooks of IMO titles such as SOLAS, MARPOL, the IAMSAR Manual, The GMDSS Handbook, and the IMDG Code online via Witherby Digital’s Cloud Server platform that will give a user access from any internet connected PC or enabled device.
IMO eBooks have been available since 2011 for installations on PCs via the popular ‘IMO Bookshelf’, however, users can now choose to increase the flexibility of viewing their eBooks on the likes of tablets or other mobile devices via the new ‘Cloud Server’ version, developed by Witherby Digital.
The development of the system was in response to companies with 'locked down' computer systems. This makes the new cloud version ideal for corporate environments, even when locations are spread across the world. Successful trials have been underway since 2012 and Witherby Digital is now making its own, Witherby Seamanship and IMO titles available, adding new titles to the service to meet demand.
