Geollect will be exhibiting in the Esri User Conference 2018 Start-up Zone, and we are proud to say we will be the only UK start-up company there! Find out more about the sponsors and exhibitors here.
As a start-up less than a year into its journey, Geollect is excited to be able to use a venue like the Esri UC to unveil some of the unique geospatial intelligence capabilities we’ve been working hard to develop and implement. The Geollect team will demonstrate the benefits and efficiencies we have brought to the maritime industry, in particular the insurance market.
Geollect's Cate Gwilliam, will be giving a Spotlight Talk in the Start-up Zone Spotlight Theater on Tuesday, 10 July at 13:30. The talk will focus on the automated maritime risk mitigation model that we have developed that helps to identify the safest and quickest maritime transits through areas of concern, reducing risk, saving time and money.
Thanks to innovators in the field like the UK P&I Loss Prevention team, Geollect’s Maritime Intelligence Portal has transformed the way Loss Prevention stores, organises, visualises and analyses their data combined with Geollect’s geospatial analytics.
George Devereese, Senior Loss Prevention Executive, UK P&I Club, said: “We believe there is a compelling need within maritime risk to modernise and fuse disparate reporting mechanisms. Visualising the political atmosphere on top of port infrastructure and activity layers via geospatial data services can provide insights into the risks associated with each specific port and the Club is aiming to create the most extensive incident and information resource within the P&I industry.
“Incorporating Geollect’s data and information will give us an operational advantage over our competition, as well as providing us with lower operational risk and increase efficiencies. This is just the start for us and we will look to our members to let us know what other information will be useful.”
Cate Gwilliam, CEO, Geollect said “The key to our success has been our agility and ability to adapt to the customer requirements, this has only been possible through the strong relationship we have built with UK P&I. Our products have wide application across government and commercial sectors, our niche is in the maritime sector encompassing shipping, insurance, energy, infrastructure, safety and security. The Geollect team is committed to remaining at the forefront of any and all geospatial technological advances to ensure our clients and partners receive the most effective and cost-efficient support and services.”
The UK P&I Club, which is navigating with the goal of providing members as much relevant information as possible, has partnered with geospatial intelligence firm Geollect. The tie-up is aimed at painting what the marine insurer described as “a complete picture” of worldwide maritime incidents and alerts.
The new resource will feature live incident reporting as well as information on collision areas, infrastructure repairs, and piracy updates. It will also provide easy access to the Club’s online knowledge base.
