Even for the savviest of user, the amount of maritime data produced can be overwhelming. Truth be told, more data is available every day to help make decisions but what remains elusive is the ability for an organization to generate actionable information based on that data. Data can be disorganized and hard to understand, and many struggle to turn it into insights that can be shared across the organization and amongst partners.
There are factors as to why businesses struggle to generate actionable information. One being the types of SaaS solutions in the market. Over the last several years, many solutions have been geared towards vessel operations, resulting in a market that is awash with tools to better serve those persons operating ships. This is a great start. However, the link to the commercial decision-makers is missing. The need to share information across an organization successfully is paramount and silos within companies must be broken.
When you look at the commercial side of the shipping business, often the charterer department needs information from their operators to make critical decisions on the next voyage. In most cases, the system that the chartering team uses is disconnected from their operations leaving a level of uncertainty that the information is up-to-date and accurate. A day or two here and there can result in either a missed voyage or too long of a wait, both of which can have a detrimental and material impact on voyage returns. In today’s challenging environment, it is imperative that owners have complete certainty in their business decisions because wait time can sink voyage returns from marginal to terrible. Never has the saying “time is money” been more valid.
