MARCH 26, 2015 — Applied Weather Technology, Inc. (AWT), a StormGeo Company, is to collaborate with Veson Nautical to simplify how captains report to shore-based managers.
Headquartered in California's Silicon Valley, AWT is a leading provider of shore-based ship routing advisory services, on-board voyage optimization systems and fleet management systems.
Boston, MA, headquartered Veson Nautical is a leading provider of maritime commercial management and trading software. The Integrated Maritime Operations System (IMOS), Veson Nautical's flagship solution, facilitates faster and more strategic decision making, supporting clients to realize revenue growth, protect voyage P&L, and optimize performance. Veslink is an online service that streamlines the collection and distribution of mission-critical commercial maritime data.
The new offering delivers time-savings to vessel captains, enabling them to send a single at-sea report to both the onshore operator and AWT via Veson's Veslink, rather than sending multiple duplicate reports comprising the same data. In one click, operators using both AWT and Veslink can deliver critical data to both the AWT weather routing service and voyage management through Veslink and Veson's IMOS system.
"I can truly say that our collaboration with Veson is based on the demands of many of our important clients who would like to see closer integration of AWT and Veson services," said Haydn Jones, CEO of AWT. "The immediate goal is for AWT's use of Veslink formatted ship reports that will help to reduce the load on ship's masters for preparing multiple similar daily reports. In today's world of ever deeper and closer operational integration of ship and shore-based management, this is a step in the right direction. Veson Nautical is an internationally recognized maritime service provider and we are proud to be working with them."
John Veson, Veson Nautical Co-President said, "AWT is a key leader that consistently delivers valuable innovations and services to the maritime industry. Veson Nautical is delighted to partner with AWT, enabling our clients to further optimize their voyage routing."
The companies say they look forward to delivering additional software integration points over the coming years.
