Q88 launches PRO platform

Maritime software provider Q88 has launched a new platform to offer ship operators an overview of their fleet data supplemented by global tanker supply information to support market decision making.

The new Q88PRO system provides market data within a central access point, allowing users to upload and access fleet data and positions and compare them to the external competitive environment. The software integrates data sources like global fixtures and includes market statistics.

Integrated analytics track supply trends over time by analysing data based on geographic criteria, combining that with vessel-specific data to deliver relevant market information. This includes open position predictive modelling, last cargo’s view, a TCE calculator and other tools to anticipate conditions and better plan voyages.

Updated AIS positions from multiple providers are also incorporated to help users keep track of their fleets and competitive positions in the market, which can be organised along a range of search criteria. An API additionally allows the application to be integrated with existing software systems to support collaboration.

“From the beginning, our focus was to create tools to make commercially operating vessels more efficient and profitable. I am very excited about this announcement as it continues that call to action that we are so focused on here at Q88,” said Fritz Heidenreich, Q88 CEO.
