To recognise and reward the capability and performance of each Dataloy technology partner, the company has introduced three designations for partners:
Affiliate. Individuals or organisations making one to one integration using the customer dev or test environment.
Chief. Highly trained organisations demonstrating proficiency in understanding Dataloy API, implementation approach, and core functionality.
Master. The highest level of Dataloy APl mastery. They are accredited API Partners, demonstrating a high level of proficiency.
The integration partner program reportedly adds immediate value for Dataloy customers. Customers can now discover relevant integrations based on key categories, such as maritime intelligence, bunkering, DA agents, weather services, email, etc. and access to specific, more useful information about integrations and joint solutions, including use cases.
Dataloy's concise and clear documentation supports members of the Partner Program via its Partner Portal.
"Our integration ecosystem and partner program are central to Dataloy's role as the core platform for voyage planning and operations," said Hege Jacobsen, head of partner relations, Dataloy. "We are excited to expand and grow our collaborative ecosystem with our integration partners to bring joint value to our customers by helping them innovate and improve operations more comprehensively."
In the nine months since the launch, the program has grown and expanded with new technology partner integrations.
The partner portfolio includes nine master partners and is increasing steadily.
Inaugural members of Dataloy´s master partners include SEDNA, Chinsay, OrbitMI, World Fuel Services, ClearLynx, Bunker Metric, Q88, VIEW Maritime.
“As always, Dataloy continues to enrich the maritime industry with more solutions and integrations built on their longterm commitment to being an open platform,” commented Bill Dobie, CEO of SEDNA Communications. “For SEDNA, it’s especially rewarding to be named a master partner after many years of productive collaboration. We’re delighted to be part of the solution to reduce administrative noise, internal errors, and increase efficiency for the world's leading shipping companies.”
“Orbit is a technology innovation hub that is open, extendible and intelligent,” said Ali Riaz, CEO of OrbitMI. “Our customers engage in digital dream building where they extend the core solutions and capabilities in the hub to create data flows that feed the way they work. With the rich vessel and voyage data from Dataloy’s VMS, this integration lets teams across any maritime organisation tap into a common source of truth, allowing them to optimise each decision they make while seeing the macro picture of the entire business. As we like to say, they can Sea the Big Picture.”
