Nordic IT partnership

It is a well-known fact that shipping has strong Danish roots, and this has also resulted in establishment of Nordic IT and shipIT, both head quartered in Copenhagen, both providing IT related services to the Danish as well as global shipping community.

Nordic IT is one of the world’s leading communication software suppliers for the maritime industry. The company’s latest product is the state-of-the-art communication software MARK 5; a software product specially designed to serve the needs of the maritime industry. With MARK 5 Nordic IT managed to incorporate messaging, document management, customer relationship management and other shipping applications in one unified solution.

Lars Hansen, CEO of Nordic IT explain: “We already have a strong market position with especially our MARK5 product suite launched early 2011, and need to scale our sales and implementation teams to leverage the success. At the same time we are continuously looking for new ways to expand our scope of offerings; and believe in partnerships as a way to grow. This makes shipIT a perfect fit with their consulting expertise and presence in the same market. So since we are addressing the same clients, why not join forces to the benefit of our clients?”

Kim Ahler, CEO of shipIT continues: “Working with our clients, we have come to know Nordic IT and their MARK5 solution as a market leader. At shipIT we do not develop our own solutions, but use our insight and consulting approach to understand what are the best products available; not just the software itself, but also the company behind it. Furthermore, we have been looking for ways to expand our presence in Asia, and expect to leverage from the strong foothold of Nordic IT in Singapore. We have high expectations to this unique collaboration; and the plan is definitely to intensify the collaboration over time”.

The collaboration has its key focus on the MARK5 communication and document management solution, and means shipIT will become authorized agent of the MARK5 solution and offer consulting services around MARK5. However, the partnership will go even further than that, so that Nordic IT and shipIT will be joining efforts in many areas, providing a global, one-stop-shopping service of leading solutions and the best consulting services available for the shipping industry.
