Aberdeen based Marine technology company Seall has secured a partnership deal with leading marine electronics service provider, Elcome, to expand its global footprint. The partnership agreement will expand the distribution of Seall’s ECDIS (Electronic Chart Display and Information System) products in Asia, Africa and Europe.
Elcome, one of the world’s largest maritime systems integrators, is headquartered in Dubai with offices throughout the Middle East, India, Singapore, Sri Lanka and Spain. It specialises in providing technology-led solutions and services to the maritime, defence, energy, security, critical infrastructure, yachting and fishing industries.
Seall’s team of software and IT specialists apply intuitive technology to simplify and streamline the way data is displayed, used, and shared from shore-to-ship and ship-to-shore. Its IMO (International Maritime Organization)-approved ECDIS is one of the first marine software systems to include a multi-touch screen interface, making it one of the simplest ECDIS systems to operate in the maritime market.
Barry Booth, Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) of Seall, stated, “this strategic partnership marks a turning point for Seall’s evolution as we are now able to deliver our technology across a number of key markets across the globe. By partnering with Elcome, we can ensure customers are buying our products from a trustworthy and accomplished distributor, continuing to deliver value for them, wherever they may be in the world.”
Elcome’s Executive Director Jimmy Grewal, added “we are delighted to partner with Seall to help expand its navigation solutions into new and existing markets. Seall’s reputation for developing cutting-edge, innovative software is indicative in that it powers some of the maritime industry’s most recognisable brands. We are looking forward to working with the company to ensure more vessel operators and crews benefit from this technology.”
