Technology

We use a mix of technologies,  from server side .Net to client side Angular and from SQL Server databases to fast index stores and text analytics. The architecture of CompassAir enables flexible on-premise/cloud/hybrid deployments, always-on operation, unlimited and efficient data storage and drastically reduced maintenance and training.

 

By means of artificial intelligence and natural language processing, our software engines can read incoming emails and extract structured intelligence, such as open positions and cargo orders .

 

Over the years, we have forged close partnerships with established, high quality data vendors e.g., Microsoft for databases and development tools, IHS MarkIT for vessel technical and commercial data, MarineTraffic for AIS and vessel data, Netpas for port distances and more.
