Open Shipbuilding Platform

Every process in a shipyard relies on data, and every activity creates data. The variety and scale of modern shipbuilding processes make it impossible for a single monolithic software program to be the right fit in every situation. See why partnerships and open integration are the key link to ensure your organization can push data to and pull data from any source – while taking advantage of the existing infrastructure in place.
