The holiday season is upon us, which means that 2019 is coming to an end and 2020 is right around the corner. As is tradition, we like to take this opportunity to reflect on the year passed as well as look ahead.
2019 has been a fantastic year for us with growth all around – from bottom line, to number of colleagues, our product portfolio and last but not least our number of customers.
So, where does this success originate? What have we done to achieve it? Our recipe for this year’s success has been quite simple – make our customers a success and the rest will follow!
In 2019 we won a number of projects that strengthen our position in the AIS data management, Aids to Navigation (AtoN) system monitoring and port logistics market spaces. L3HARRIS and GateHouse Maritime partnered to manage, distribute and provide analytics support for L3HARRIS’ geospatial intelligence processing services. We were contracted with the Commissioners of Irish Lights (CIL) for an AtoN system monitoring solution, providing a comprehensive and integrated solution to monitor all components of the CIL AtoN system. GateHouse Maritime also partnered with Tideland (Xylem) to launch the TSD Nautical Sentry AtoN monitoring solution, which Tideland is now marketing worldwide. 2019 closed with a contract with the Port of Montréal to provide logistics support services with our ghMaritime Port solution.
With regards to our product portfolio we have recently launched two new solutions: ghMaritime Tugboat and ghMaritime Pilot. Both solutions are built upon our proven maritime data aggregation and distribution platform. The very targeted solutions reflect the markets need for simplicity in a world quickly becoming noisy from all the data and solutions that are available today. To be efficient for everyday operations targeted and user-friendly solutions are key.
In line with this approach we are launching two additional solutions in the beginning of 2020: ghMaritime ETA and ghMaritime Container. These solutions will provide clients with services to track individual containers on vessels and provide ETAs for vessels to a designated port, weeks in advance.
We hope that 2019 has been just as prosperous for you, your colleagues and your loved ones, as it has been for us.
