Fortune Technologies, a Greek provider of integrated maritime software solutions and Microsoft’s Dynamics NAV partner, announced a strategic alliance with RINA, the classification, certification, inspection, testing and consulting multinational, to create value added services for the Greek and global shipping market.
RINA aims to further enhance its presence in the maritime market, and in particular within the digital technology sector, by further developing the RINACube digital platform with Fortune Technologies, a leader in IT and maritime ERP systems.
By leveraging RINA’s network and know-how, as well as Fortune Technologies’ specialization in maritime ERP, the two companies seek to provide integrated solutions and applications to the shipping industry.
Through this collaboration, shipping companies will have even greater access to cutting-edge Microsoft technology while enjoying worldwide support from RINA.
George Frydas, Managing Director, Fortune Technologies, said “We are excited to partner with RINA because this partnership aligns with our core strategy on many fronts. Fortune Technologies has a deep knowledge and expertise in Microsoft Dynamics Maritime ERP and this partnership should prove to be extremely valuable for our current and future customers. Our combined energies will help our customers with greater insight in order to make more informed decisions in the current competitive shipping environment.”
Paolo Moretti, Executive Vice President Marine, RINA, commented “RINA’s strategy is based on a 360-degrees approach to the needs of clients. To provide digital solutions to the marine market, not only covering traditional services such as ship classification, but also contributing to adding value to shipowner’s assets, RINA is investing in a network of reliable partners like Fortune Technologies to expand the potential of RINACube. Thanks to powerful analytics and machine learning, our digital platform is already able to convert data into useful actionable information to provide, among other services, efficient ship performance management”.
Cooperation has already begun and more details will be announced shortly.
