New Locale Reflects Boston-Based Company’s Focus on Quality, Innovation, Employees and Customers

BOSTON, MA– July 19, 2011 –Veson Nautical, a premier provider of maritime commercial management and trading software solutions, announced today that the company has moved into a 20,000 square foot space in the Back Bay Area of Boston, at 500 Boylston Street. Veson, which has won several workplace awards this year, including top small company to work for by Inc. Magazine, has been growing dynamically over the last several years.  This is the company’s third expansion in seven years.

Architect Belinda Watts of Watts O’Keefe Studio designed the space at 500 Boylston with input from a panel of Veson employees, and workspace design by Roger Kaufman and Sara Boyce of Environments at Work.  The new office was developed with an urban plan, incorporating a hierarchy of boulevards, streets and open spaces. At strategic locations, narrow passages intersect the grid of the plan and provide dramatic framed views of Trinity Church and 500 Boylston’s courtyard.  As in the city, there is a delicate balance between the private and public realm.  

The space highlights features such as direct lighting for all employees, “Smart Desks” that can be electronically raised and lowered to allow people to determine their preference of sitting or standing while working, and a combination of sound minimizing flooring to help reduce noise. Additionally there is a lounge called “The Percolator” with floor-to-ceiling glass white boards to accommodate group design and brainstorming, private spaces for quiet and solitary concentration, and an open kitchen where lunch is served to the entire company several times a week. The new locale reflects the company’s commitment to taking care of its employees so that they in turn take care of Veson’s end users; in this workspace Veson staff will continue to deliver quality software solutions to the company’s global customer base.

“Our employees are our most important resource; we hire extremely talented people and invest in their development. But we make certain also to find opportunities for rewards, recognition—and fun—wherever possible. The new office space reflects our focus on quality, innovation, and customer-driven practices. By designing an office that is highly functional, visually distinctive, and adaptable to individual styles and needs, we are ensuring that our working environment, like our technology, encourages strategic thinking and creativity,” said John D. Veson, President of Veson Nautical.  

Veson Awarded Honors This Spring

In May 2011, Veson Nautical won the national Inc. Magazine and Winning Workplaces’ Top Small Company Workplaces Award and was named a Best Place to Work by the Boston Business Journal.  The company also received the Boston Business Journal’s Pacesetter Award for fastest growing companies in Boston.  These honors underscore the direct link between an inspiring, comfortable workplace and the production of high performance technology. By creating a space that is functional but also beautiful and sleek, with a smart, attractive design – Veson Nautical will ensure that its working environment mirrors its technology solutions.

Founded in 1979, Veson Nautical is the premier provider of maritime commercial management and trading software solutions. The company’s proven, open-system approach is based on best practices developed over its 30-year history in the shipping industry. Today, Veson’s core offerings include IMOS (Integrated Maritime Operations System), which offers modules for Chartering, Operations and Financials; and Veslink, which are highly configurable web-based services that create a network of trusted contacts for exchanging vital shipping data. Veson’s suite of offerings consolidate, analyze and leverage data across all commercial shipping activities, allowing users to enhance decision-making, manage risk and maximize profit.
