VESSEL INSIGHT INFRASTRUCTURE
Kongsberg Digital’s Vessel Insight is a cost-efficient data infrastructure solution that enables shipowners and operators to start and to succeed in their digitalization process. While Vessel Insight collects and contextualizes data from vessels, applications on top use the necessary data to solve a predefined set of KPI. Zegeba will now be available at the Kognifai Marketplace, a network of partnerships that provide access to a range of market leading applications that can be utilized by Vessel Insight subscribers to become more sustainable and gain a competitive edge. The Kongsberg Digital Customer Success Team will assist Vessel Insight subscribers wanting to adopt the application to make reporting and workflow more efficient.
We are very pleased to offer our Vessel Insight subscribers Zegeba’s software solution through the Kognifai Marketplace, says Eirik Næsje, Senior Vice President of Vessel Insight, KDI. Operational efficiency improvements are key drivers in the maritime industry. Electronic data exchange between ship and shore need further digitization to ensure fast and secure exchange of data and information, and Zegeba is facilitating exactly this. Digital workflow is an important step towards standardized reporting in the industry which will take shipping into a new era of efficient and transparent operations.
Zegeba is used to optimize the core business processes and has a major impact on many aspects of the business operations like for example:

The gains will start immediately, and based on how the company uses Zegeba’s features, there may be a direct increase in revenues based on the effect of the change.
