Pole Star Space Applications, a leading provider of realtime asset tracking and monitoring solutions, and Risk Intelligence, a security and piracy intelligence specialist, have today announced their strategic partnership.
The companies are working to integrate several solutions, allowing mutual customers to combine the benefits of realtime fleet information with the latest intelligence on piracy and security incidents around the world. The first product will be launched Q1 2014.
"There is a natural synergy between what we do (offering customers fleet information they can use to make decisions quickly) and what Risk Intelligence do (providing maritime companies with the latest intelligence on the location, details and assessment of piracy and security incidents)," said Andrew Peters, CEO at Pole Star. "By combining tracking and piracy intelligence in a single system, we can give our customers more meaningful information that they can use to make decisions quickly."
"We first collaborated with Pole Star in 2009," said Hans Tino Hansen, Managing Director & CEO at Risk Intelligence. "Since then our relationship has evolved, and we are pleased to announce today that we will join forces in a strategic partnership to offer our mutual customers some powerful new features."
"We think our mutual customers will enjoy the benefits that this partnership will bring," continued Mr. Hansen. "By combining the information that our two companies provide, we can offer something very valuable indeed – actionable intelligence for the routing of ships to avoid current or predicted hotspots."
