Nowadays compliance is in the core of every reputable business and we were in research for a sanctions compliance tool that would give us the opportunity to locate our entered vessels and be notified of specific behaviour promptly. Geollect’s platform has transformed the way in which we review vessels entered with the Club. The best part of working with Geollect, apart from being professional, is that they are very friendly and approachable and always use their best endeavours to find a solution to every request. It has been a great pleasure working with Geollect and we are very happy to see continued improvements and new features to the platform.

Working with Geollect has allowed us to develop a bespoke geo-referenced information platform, where we can share a variety of sources of information with our Members. The expertise and dedication of the Geollect team has allowed us to quickly develop and launch additional data layers relating to topical global issues. Through the Geollect team taking the time to fully understand our needs and requirements, they have been able to utilise their experience and expertise to deliver a fantastic resource for our Members. We are excited to be working with an innovative company like Geollect and look forward to continuing to further enhance and develop the capabilities of our platform.

Geollect has been a great partner in our efforts to broaden our situational awareness, by providing a more holistic and integrated view of our global asset exposure and the risks we face at Royal Caribbean. Working in the intelligence analysis space at Royal Caribbean during the last 5 years and testing various technology platforms, I can say without question that Geollect is at the top of that list. It’s been challenging to find a provider that understands the maritime space and can deliver a platform that adequately meets our intelligence needs. Their ability to bring together disparate layers of data—both at sea and on land—and visually represent them in an integrated manner made them stand out above the rest. We are excited about our partnership with Geollect and look forward to a collaborative relationship.

It is forward-thinking UK companies like Geollect that are driving the rapid growth of the geospatial industry and giving the UK economy a boost. “Now is the time for other businesses to tap into the international opportunities for geospatial analysis and showcase British services and expertise on the global stage.

Geollect have been amazing to work with. The team are very engaged and fast to adapt to the relevant use case in order to develop a well suited solution. Geollect’s iterative approach means that they can incorporate feedback throughout their process to develop a highly specific solution incredibly quickly. The Bakery have really enjoyed working with Cate, Richard and the team and would jump at the opportunity to partner with them again.
Techmodal collaborated with Geollect last year to demonstrate the potential of geospatial intelligence technology to further the reach and impact of one of our software products. In a matter of weeks Geollect’s team presented relevant satellite imagery, geo-referenced and intelligence data in an accessible web application that has since been exhibited to current and prospective clients to great effect. The company looks forward to working with Geollect in the future in order to integrate their capability more closely with our modelling and analytics expertise in defence and industry.
Industry collaboration is key to addressing the big challenges faced by the logistics and maritime industry. For far too many it remains a buzzword, unless we take real action. It is with this in mind we designed the trade & transport impact program to help corporate partners like Wärtsilä, Inmarsat and Cargotec find and engage with great disruptive start-ups to explore ways for improving efficiency, sustainability and safety across the industry. Geollect was selected as 1 of out only 14 finalists from a field of 650 exciting Marine Tech companies from 55 countries globally, that convened in Hamburg during the spring 2019 to pursue collaborative opportunities for driving real impact and moving the needle in a notoriously conservative industry. The Geollect team presented a strong value proposition and exciting new technology by a strong management team with deep subject-matter and industry expertise Thanks to their thought leadership and flawless execution during the program sprints, Geollect, uniquely, walked away with concrete business projects with each of the corporate partners for substantial industry impact.
We met Geollect at the GeoBusiness show in 2017 and they have been an asset to the ESRI start-up program from the start. They’ve shown exemplary commitment to understanding both their customers’ needs and the market opportunity. Using their domain expertise in both GIS and maritime security, they have created valuable web applications, to solve existing, labour intensive, business problems, whilst taking ESRI technology into new customers and departments that we have not previously been. Geollect’s honest and straight forward way of working, is just a bonus. We need more start-ups like Geollect.
Geollect secured a place on the first Cohort of the Lloyd’s Lab programme, after impressing with their Pitch Day presentation, over 200 companies applied and 10 were selected. The team were a pleasure to work with and despite not coming from an insurance background showed an understanding into what Managing Agents were looking for. The background experience and knowledge combined with passion and ability of the team ensure that the offering of Geollect is up to date and compelling for their customer base.
During the recent COVID-19 pandemic Geollect enabled the Royal Navy to deliver a specialised dashboard focused on Maritime Domain Awareness. Geollect significantly improved the access of traditional and non-traditional unclassified intelligence sources alongside the development of intuitive tools to enable non-expert geospatial users to exploit data.
Great little powerhouse of a company with a formidable team!

We wanted to synthesise our own and relevant third party information and data about the places our Members trade to support them in their voyage planning and execution. Our partners Geollect used their unrivalled knowledge and expertise to help us to develop our Neptune information portal, a class-leading platform which delivers real time information and data to our Members when and where they need it.
