FOSMA Maritime Institute & Research Organisation (FMIRO) selects L2C2 Technologies’ Koha support
We are pleased to extend a warm welcome to the newest member of our growing client-partner family in Eastern India – FOSMA Maritime Institute & Research Organisation (FMIRO), Kolkata, a maritime training institute. FMIRO Kolkata has gone live on Koha ILS 16.11 series on L2C2 Technologies‘s cloud hosting platform.
The Foreign Ship-owners Representatives and Ship Managers Association (FOSMA) was established in India in 1989 to represent foreign owners and ship managers operating in India. Taking in to account that the education, training and competence standards of seafarers is of primary concern and priority of all ship managers in India, the Association established a special purpose vehicle – “FOSMA MARITIME INSTITUTE AND RESEARCH ORGANISATION” (FMIRO), as a non-profit organization under section 25 of the Companies Act, 1958 (now Section 8 of the Companies Act, 2013).
It was nice to see IASLIC’s (Indian Association of Special Libraries and Information Centres) Newsletter for June 2016 feature one of L2C2 Technologies blogpost on Koha Integrated Library System‘s version numbering changes. The IASLIC newsletter can be access from here. See page 5 of 8 under the section “Technology News”.
