Stena Orbit platform, which was developed by HTEC’s engineers, brings a new dimension by pioneering the digitalization of the tanker shipping industry.
The primary goal of the platform is to offer Stena’s personnel and customers a way to increase the productivity and allow them to make better and faster decisions based on the vast, but a well-organized set of data.
Orbit includes a responsive web application, which supports small portable devices but also big presentation screens, and touch screens; and a mobile app, designed to show data relevant only on the move, which is used for fast decision making, with the optimized battery saving option. The data from third-party applications fed into the Orbit database is used for visualization, and it is improved, allowing users to contribute by entering data and comments manually. The historical data is used to analyze the market and learn from the past to predict the future.
Before Orbit, it was almost impossible to track the movement and businesses of competitor’s companies and assets, which indirectly affected the business and was bringing the uncertainty into the process. For this reason, the Orbit pays particular attention to this segment, introducing transparency into, what used to be, a traditionally reserved environment. By harvesting the information about all the tankers worldwide, Orbit is capable of not only tracking the competition but also predicting the near-future actions that should be taken to optimize the fleets sustainability and utilization.
