Following the recent launch of its NavFleet fleet management system, NAVTOR has acquired vessel analytics specialist Tres Solutions.
Tres Solutions was founded in Houston in 2016 and has since opened offices in Europe and Asia. The company’s core software and services platform, Tres Vessel Analytics, helps shipping companies enhance environmental efficiency, minimise fuel consumption and reduce operating expenses.
Tres Solutions’ digital products will now integrate into NAVTOR’s offering.
NAVTOR provides a range of e-Navigation systems, and the company reports that it is currently delivering solutions to around 7,000 ships.
Commenting on the acquisition, NAVTOR CEO Tor Svanes, said: ‘Vessel performance optimisation is an obvious next step for NAVTOR. Utilising our cyber secure, seamlessly connected and cloud-based e-Navigation ecosystem as a platform to enable real-time data sharing, analytics and enhanced decision making.
‘The launch of NavFleet gives our customers a unique shoreside tool for better fleet management, and the addition of Tres Solutions’ expertise and software delivers the power to generate optimal value – taking performance data and extracting the intelligence needed to enable smarter, more profitable, and efficient operations.’
