We at OrbitMI are both proud and humbled to be named as a “Leader” in Voyage Optimisation by Thetius in their recently released research report

OrbitMI Named a Leader In Voyage Optimisation


Being in the upper right quadrant of any objective marketplace review--like this one or this one—means a lot to us, especially when you consider the list of companies that were reviewed (see below).


V2 - MLR - Thetius analysed 44 suppliers and named 13 of the leaders.


But it means more to the maritime marketplace.  The marketplace for maritime software has exploded over the last few years with new entrants appearing every month.  Making sense of these companies can be challenging for customers: 

  • What do they do?
  • Are they any good?  
  • Do they have customers?
  • How long have they been around?
  • Does the technology exist or is it just a slick presentation?

These are only a few questions that buyers have asked. 

Buyers need help in making these decisions. The market maps that groups such as Thetius, Skysail Advisors and other organizations create help ship owners, pool managers and other buyers make decisions quickly and with confidence. 

We’d like to help buyers, too.  Working with our customers and stakeholders, our development team continuously creates new features and improves existing ones.  The pace of innovation is often faster than we can communicate these upgrades. 

Thus, we wanted to share a bit about what’s new.  Below, you’ll read about some--only some—of the changes we’ve made over the last few months. 

Watch this space.  More news to come.
