Klein Systems Group Ltd. (KSG), hosted a Customer Advisory Group (CAG) and Technical User Group (TUG) meeting in Brisbane, Australia from October 22nd to 24th, 2014. The annual event was supported by organizations with responsibility for more than 50 ports including representatives from Darwin Port Corp., Flinders Ports Pty Ltd., Fremantle Ports Authority, Maritime Safety Queensland, Pilbara Ports Authority (both Dampier and Port Hedland) and PNG Ports Corp. Ltd. In addition, representatives of Gladstone Port Corp. Ltd. and the Port Authority of New South Wales attended Day 2 of the CAG as guests.
The CAG forum provides Klein user organizations with an open forum to discuss issues, trends, share experiences and vote on the roadmap and direction of Klein solutions.
Each participating Port presented their recent operational and administrative activities and indicated how KleinPort was used to assist in these areas while Klein presented the latest product release and showcased the possibilities of integrated port solutions for greater efficiency including the addition of Saab capabilities for landside security, underwater vehicles, hydrography, piloting and communications solutions to the well-known integrated Vessel Traffic and Port Management offerings.
“This event is a great opportunity for us to understand the needs of our users and also for the expert community to share experiences,” said Peter Behrendt, Klein Systems Managing Director, “We couldn’t ask for a better two-way exchange of ideas.”
The group agreed to schedule the next CAG and TUG event for August 2015, to be hosted in Darwin, Australia and to start planning for May 2016 in Vancouver, Canada to coincide with the the scheduled International Harbour Masters Association Congress.
