NorSea Group and Kongsberg Group establish digital collaboration

(Stavanger 24.05.2017) NorSea Group's new software company, NSG Digital, aims to simplify logistics. Now they are moving the development and deployment of their new product, NSG E2E, to Kongsberg’s application platform Kognifai.

With their new product, NSG Digital aims to simplify and enhance visibility and information sharing in supply chains. Through digital collaboration NSG E2E (End-to-End) will make cargo logistics more efficient and transparent.

-With our new product we are challenging supply chain owners to open up for increased information sharing and digital collaboration with their suppliers and partners. With our strong focus on sharing and openness it is natural that both NSG Digital and Kongsberg Digital exploit and contribute to technology sharing. For us, that is what Kognifai is all about and it is the main reason for wanting to be part of the Kognifai platform, says Managing Director of NSG Digital, Henrik Heggland.

A growing interest for Kognifai
Kongsberg Digital, who recently launched Kognifai, is experiencing an overwhelming interest in their platform.

-We are excited to see that an increasing number of companies are interested in the platform and want to contribute to the continued development of Kognifai. Our vision for Kognifai is to provide an environment for efficient application development and deployment. With Kognifai our partners, like NSG Digital, can focus on developing the core functionality which brings business value, instead of having to focus on issues like security, authentication, account management, billing, backup and data storage. This is all being handled by the Kognifai platform, says CTO at Kongsberg Digital, Christian Møller.

Enabling new synergies
Kongsberg has a strong presence in both the maritime and offshore sector but is missing a product that enables efficient end-to-end cargo logistics.

-We are looking forward to bringing NSG Digital and their new product onto Kognifai. We believe their new solution for collaborative logistics planning and tracking fits perfectly as a key component in the product portfolio available on Kognifai, says VP Digital Platform at Kongsberg Digital, Matthew Robert Cagienard Duke.
