Making faster, better-informed decisions requires one crucial ingredient. Better information.
A port of any kind contains huge amount of information, which is used daily by various people to run and optimize the operations. GISGRO is a smart port management and information system (PMIS) that helps ports, their clients, and their subcontractors work smarter.
With the ability to view and utilize port and asset data quickly and easily online, ports gain the power to effectively oversee and optimize operations. The easy-to-use interface, smart tools, and online environment ensure that data is available for all, in one place at any time.
For surveyors, GISGRO is a smart way to share data to clients and help them utilize it in everyday operations.

Key benefits for ports
Gathering data, such as bathymetric charts, asset information, and interactive maintenance and berthing plans, from different sources and across different functions of the port into a visual online platform enables the port team to utilize it effectively in everyday operations. GISGRO functions as a central hub for integral information across different functions and stakeholders of the port.
Accurate data and easy-to-use tools help the team to save time and make smarter decisions.
EFFICIENT PORT OPERATIONS
With the easily available accurate data, such as weather, tidal information and AIS together with interactive berthing plan tool enables the port to accurately calculate the time of arrival and optimal UKC for the vessels. This allows the vessels to optimize their speed, avoid waiting time and optimize cargo, which saves the port resources, improves the service and is sustainable for the environment.
SMART ASSET MANAGEMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Accurate, easily available asset information and interactive maintenance management help ports to save time, cut costs, optimize predictive maintenance, and extend the asset life-cycle. Easy-to-use tools allow anyone in the team to utilize the data, for example to calculate volume, print bathymetric charts, mark maintenance needs or to quickly check the information of a rental asset.
EFFECITIVE UTILIZATION OF SURVEY DATA
Easy visualization and sharing of 3D survey data helps the port surveyors to save time in delivering the data and observations to the port team. With GISGRO’s easy-to-use tools anyone in the port team can utilize the data, for example calculate volume, print bathymetric charts and make measurements digitally. Furthermore, a complete digital twin of the port can be built based on the survey data to optimize the port operations.
What our customers say
”Our department produces and operates with a range of different types of data: multibeam and laser scans, orthoimages, and 3D reference models. For example, earlier we used to deliver underwater structural scan data to our in-house clients in 2D format. With GISGRO, we can assist them by enabling the easy access and utilization of different 2D and 3D data in asset management”
Thomas Thies, Head of Hydrographic Data Collection
Hamburg Port Authority
”GISGRO allows our asset management department to visualize one of our most important assets that are hidden from the unaided eye. This helps us assessing the condition of these assets in a fast and accessible manner, which results in an optimal support to our day-to-day asset management processes and the digitization of it”
Karel Saey, Asset Manager
North Sea Port
“We have found the cloud-based app is a convenient way of delivering datasets and means the data can be interacted with by client teams that might not have the software licenses to access our traditional deliverables. We’re really happy with the GISGRO platform and excited to see new features being added regularly. We would recommend GISGRO to anyone looking to improve their client experience and interaction with 3D datasets, especially bathymetry.”

A big part of Finnish knowhow on port software is now under one roof
Ports often use dozens of different software for different purposes, which is a challenge when the goal is to enhance effectivity with digitalization. VRT, the company behind GISGRO, aquired a port ERP software company Satamatieto and now the challenge is going to be tackled by experts of software development and asset digitalization together with the port industry’s professionals.
