What our customers say?

“Our VTS (vessel traffic services) will be able to plan berthing operations using GISGRO and the KTP tool will be able to provide AI solutions to planning the arrivals, movements and sailings reducing the time it takes to create berthing plans and enabling them to react to last minute plan changes without having to spend long periods of time reworking the day’s movements.”

Alexander Bisset, IT Manager
Port of Aberdeen

“GISGRO includes all of the tools for the safe, efficient and effective management of the Port including asset management, bathymetry and vessel planning. The ability to visualise the Port environment and information is of great benefit for our marine teams and key stakeholders creating a shared mental model.”

How GISGRO helps in port operations?

Reducing port turnaround time is doable by minimizing the waste of work with GISGRO.  Information in GISGRO lets you plan a smooth port call with an optimal berth and needed services. In GISGRO, you see all port calls and have a visual and easy-to-use planning tool for the berthing. Integrations such as AIS or weather stations give even more confidence in your decision-making. All the data recorded to GISGRO helps you also analyse, for example, response times of port services and make data-driven improvements in port operations.
