Enhance your predictive capabilities through data analysis

Maximizing uptime while reducing the cost of maintenance and use of service engineers is a key challenge for shipping companies and offshore contractors.

Big data offers immense potential for the marine industry. As it is embraced into daily operations, ship owners and operators are exploring how it can be used to support, monitor and even automate operations from onshore, centralized operation centers.

  • «…through our Integrated Operations Solutions and Centers, we aim to be connected to 3,000 vessels by 2020. We develop all our digital solutions with the customer in mind and we believe our new Predict service will strengthen the shore side operations of all involved.…»

The Power of Digital

The Power of Digital

Solving industry needs through digitalization

Historically in shipping, data has been collected from various sources in order to identify the cause of an incident. Now, with added human and machine input, data can be analyzed to predict what will happen rather that what already has.

Today, decision-making support can be augmented by analyzing the data gathered from vessels and their onboard components. The future of shipping, and many other industries, depends increasingly on data analytics for decision automation.

Integrated operations refers to a way of operating that allows your ships, onshore headquarters and suppliers to operate with the same set of tools and digital solutions. By combining and centralizing operations, you can provide enhanced support for your entire fleet and take service and support to a new level.
