Cutting Edge Supply Chain Intelligence with Spire Sense: Odyn Chooses Spire
March 01 2018
SAN FRANCISCO, March 1, 2018 -- Odyn.ai, a cutting-edge developer of logistics analytics, has chosen Spire as their supplier of global Automatic Identification System (AIS) data. The company’s analytics rely on Spire Sense’s fast revisit time over the open ocean to help make their predictive analytics possible.
“Having Spire’s timely global AIS coverage allows us to make much more accurate predictions, leading to better recommendations and increased customer cost savings. Being able to see every vessel in the water in semi-realtime means a super fresh picture of what’s going on in the maritime world. In our world, having fresh maritime data has huge impacts on making good supply chain decisions.” said Marc Held, CEO and Founder of Odyn. “Having the best quality AIS data is important to us, since better data means better predictions about the supply chain.”
Odyn, which mainly tracks cargo vessels, chose to use Spire Sense’s Messages and Vessels APIs. The API provides easy filtering based on vessel type and many other factors. Kyle Brazil, Product Manager on Sense, stated that “We strive to make AIS data easier to work with. There are countless customers who simply don’t have the resources or desire to sort through millions of AIS messages themselves so we are continuing to add new features and APIs that empower customers like Odyn to get to the answers they need quickly.”
Decision making is typically the core goal of processing AIS data. For Odyn’s customers, that means decisions that will lead to more efficient operations, a better understanding of supply chains, and most importantly — money saved. “Spire’s APIs and super responsive customer success team has allowed us to focus on what we do best (AI) and iterate quickly on our product.” added Marc.
