i4 Insight, creators of a platform that has the capability to ingest data from multiple maritime sources and then provide a comprehensive outcome based fleet operations improvement, is partnering with Prisma Electronics to integrate its LAROS™ sensor hardware data onto the platform. The addition of this data to the i4 Insight platform is another step towards helping charterers, owners and operators achieve greater operational efficiency and reduced operational expenditure.
The LAROS™ solution has wireless high-frequency sensors and collectors, known as Quax units, collecting real-time vessel performance data. i4 Insight then ingests, monitors and aggregates the data with other data sources, providing customers with the ability to improve decision-making and operational performance.
“We are very pleased with our cooperation with i4 Insight as this will provide the maritime companies with reliable decision-making tools to improve their operational excellence,” said Christos Giordamlis, Prisma Electronics chief executive officer. “i4 Insight is the ideal platform that fully utilises LAROS™ structured data in an unprecedented manner offering unparalleled value to its users,” Giordamlis continued.
“We chose to work with Prisma Electronics due to their proven track record and experience in collecting real-time, high-frequency vessel sensor data,” said Joel Meltzner, Chief Executive Officer of i4 Insight, a Lloyd’s Register company.
“Partnership is an integral component of our success which is why we created the ‘i4 Alliance’ comprised of leading maritime industry partners across the globe. The goal is to provide an integrated set of products & services that help companies drive increased efficiency into their operations, and the reliable data gathered by the LAROS™ sensors allows us to help our customers reduce fuel consumption, emissions and operating costs.”
