05th October 2015: MeteoGroup, a world leading weather business, have today announced a strategic partnership with Veson Nautical, the premier provider of commercial maritime software and services, to simplify reporting aboard vessels and the communications with onshore operations. Veson Nautical’s integrated software products and services enable the world’s top tier shipping companies to transform the constant stream of information from vessels, the market, and more, into a strategic advantage.
This new collaboration sees Veson Nautical’s Integrated Maritime Operations System (IMOS) connect seamlessly with both MeteoGroup’s ship performance optimisation tool (SPOS) and its ship routing and performance analysis service (RouteGuard). The connection is made possible via Veson’s Veslink voyage reporting solution.
Using Veslink, noon reports and other voyage updates are automatically shared with SPOS/RouteGuard via the Veslink Network increasing a ship’s operational efficiency and reducing workloads both on the vessel and in the office. The critical voyage data collected through Veslink drives both more accurate and timely routing and performance information from SPOS/RouteGuard, as well as the forward itinerary and P&L analysis in IMOS.
Mark White, Business Unit Director Marine at MeteoGroup commented, “MeteoGroup and Veson look to add value by collaborating on a range of products in the near future. MeteoGroup is delighted to include Veson in its partnership programme, looking to build improved products for its combined shipping customers.”
