Wednesday, February 06, 2013

PortVision launches $500,000 grant initiative to help improve U.S. Port & Waterway efficiency, safety and security.

PortVision®, a leading provider of business intelligence solutions for the maritime industry, launches the PortVision CONNECT initiative, which includes a $500,000 commitment to fund the development and implementation of web-based solutions that help non-profit maritime organizations enhance port and waterway efficiency, safety and security for their stakeholders.  Eligible PortVision CONNECT grant participants include harbor safety committees, trade associations, marine exchanges and other industry organizations that have a primarily maritime mission.

"We all depend on our ports and waterways as the backbone of America’s freight and cargo transportation infrastructure,”" said Dean Rosenberg, PortVision chief executive officer.  "“PortVision has a unique opportunity to help optimize the performance of this vitally important shared resource, leveraging our expertise in delivering vessel-tracking and marine terminal management software solutions that are now used by more than 2,000 customers.   Everyone at PortVision is excited to participate in this initiative, and we look forward to discussing project ideas with grant applicants.”"

PortVision personnel regularly support the maritime community through active participation in industry organizations, and the company also hosts industry gatherings that bring together marine terminal management and operations personnel for dialog, brainstorming, and networking.  

The PortVision CONNECT grant initiative extends these activities with its project funding commitment, which includes dedicated staff members who will collaborate with grant recipients on development and implementation.  Pending projects include gate pass portals that streamline terminal access, information portals for real-time data access, real-time resource scheduling, and waterway alert systems.
