Our business model is, as explained elsewhere, to interface to existing data sets of operational data and focus on our core competence which are analysis and presentation of performance data to enable ship owners and operators to take more qualified decisions. Our work so far has brought us to interface with more that ten different data collection systems. This includes interfacing to data collected by weather routing providers, planned maintenance systems, proprietary systems, commercial systems as well as data collected by Voyage Data Recorders.
Apart from proprietary formats we have made interfaces to data that has their origin from:
Hanseaticsoft (Cloud Fleet Manager)
VDR data (Danelec)
Based on our vast experience with developing such interfaces we are confident that we can derive relevant decision support out almost any data set that has been collected from serious data collection providers. Naturally, the depth of our analysis depends on the quality of the data and on what data that is actually available.
The fact that we have made all these different interfaces stresses the need for an open standard for exchange of performance data, such an open standard will be developed together with our partners in the INNO+ project “Vessel Performance Decision Support”.
