Helm Operations announced that it has signed on German harbor docking company Unterweser Reederei GmbH (URAG) to Helm Dispatch Manager™ and Helm Onboard™ to manage its jobs and obtain synergies between its two operation centers and an automatic integration with its finance system invoicing on its vessels and shore.

“Having spent two years on board URAG being specifically focused on the operational excellence of our services, it was clear to me that we were in need of a simple, and in particular, user-friendly platform that would work for both our shore-based personnel as well as for those on-board,” said Michael Staufeldt, Managing Director and COO with URAG. “Having explored the market as well lately having feed-back from two of our vessels being chartered to a user of Helm, it was an obvious choice for us to investigate further in Helm.”

Ron deBruyne, CEO and Founder of Helm Operations said he was excited to be partnering with URAG. “We are inspired to work with companies like URAG who want to bring efficiency and accountability to their operations.” deBruyne also mentioned he was pleased to introduce Helm’s expertise in Harbor Docking solutions to a new market.

Said Staufeldt, “We have already established contact with the Helm Project Team. We were confronted with people who clearly understood our problem, and asked questions that even surprised ourselves. We are confident the Helm team will see us safely through this project.”
