Edoc Systems Remains Healthy in Sour Economy

Thursday, November 19, 2009

For Victoria marine enterprise software developers Edoc Systems Group, the past years economic storm has been more about riding calm winds and following seas. They are expanding and hiring while others in the software industry have been retrenching and shedding staff.

Edoc moved into their current location in the heritage Hartwig Court two years ago and have already outgrown the current space. On the strength of new business, they are in the last stages of hiring additional software developers to join the team of 18 Victoria and Vancouver based existing staff.

In the past month, they have hired a new marketing and communications coordinator, and are in the process of renovating additional space, taking over an adjacent 600 sq ft store-front.

Edoc’s two principal products, HELM Marine Operations Software and Timber are operations and analytic packages for the Tug and Towboat Industry and Forestry sectors respectively.

HELM, the marine operations package is used in the Tug and Towboat industry on both North American coasts, almost exclusively on the BC coast, The US Gulf States and up the Mississippi River and the U.S. Inland Waterway.

Edoc’s BC customers include, Island Tug and Barge, SMIT Marine Canada, Seaspan, Jones Marine Service, Catherwood Towing, Gowland Towing, Pacific Towing, Harken Towing, Hodder Tugs, and Pacific Custom Log Sort.

Their reach extends to the U.S. Gulf states where tug, barge and towboat operators like Blessey Marine Services, United Maritime Group, United Ocean Services, McAllister Towing and Transportation, Seabulk Towing, and Penn Maritime run their operations on Edos’s Helm platform.
