PortVision launches TerminalSmart dashboard

PortVision announced the unveiling of what it claims is the world’s first web-based service platform that integrates vessel tracking, management and analysis in a single, operational dashboard for marine terminal operators.

The company said its TerminalSmart solution gives terminal operators access to PortVision’s comprehensive database of both real-time and historical vessel movements based on AIS vessel-tracking data, and combines it with management, analysis and reporting tools to enhance terminal operations.

Unlike stand-alone AIS-based tracking tools that simply display dots on a map to represent current vessel locations, PortVision said terminal operators can use TerminalSmart “to streamline vendor and resource management, handle all traffic scheduling, dispatch and management, perform integrated demurrage reporting and analysis, and accelerate and improve incident response all from a single, comprehensive, web-based solution.”

“Marine terminal operators are under more pressure than ever before to improve efficiency, reduce costs, and enhance their visibility into every aspect of the increasingly complex terminal environment,” said Dean Rosenberg, chief executive officer of PortVision.

PortVision said TerminalSmart solution would be made available in May 2010, with pricing is based on terminal size and enterprise access.
