Experiences from our smart port clients

“When we have all of our assets in GISGRO, enriched with additional data, we will be able to use it in every aspect of port operations from maintenance to sales. It does not only improve our communication internally and between different departments in the port, but also with customers and other stakeholders.”

Ville Kuitunen, Sales Manager | Port of HaminaKotka

“It is easy to communicate with each other in GISGRO. For example, our maintenance crew has really been satisfied with the exact location of the needed repair being automatically included in service requests sent through GISGRO. This helps the crew in quickly finding the correct location in the vast port area. Also, the office team uses service request logs in GISGRO to verify invoices from the contractors.”

Teemu Vaahtera, CEO | Port of Uusikaupunki

“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
