Tideworks Technology, a provider of terminal operating systems (TOS) solutions, has announced a joint venture with Brenock Technology, a supplier of software applications and consulting services in the cruise sector.
The two companies will collaborate by using their complementary strengths to deliver enhanced management tools and solutions, they said.
Cruise lines and marine terminal operators are facing unprecedented disruption during the COVID-19 pandemic, with widespread suspension of services and concerns about the safety of workers and cruise passengers.
By joining together, Brenock and Tideworks, with the support of Tideworks’ parent company, Carrix and sister company, SSA Marine, will deliver solutions to help the cruise sector optimise and automate processes, as they rebuild from economic setbacks and adjust to new health and safety standards on board.
Carrix has expanded and developed its business to support the industry’s changing needs and this joint venture is a continuation of these investments, the companies explained.
“We are eager to partner with Brenock to provide technology solutions to cruise lines and terminal operators to help them increase efficiency and save costs,” said Thomas Rucker, Tideworks President. “With Brenock as an ally, our collective technology and expertise can help improve operations, solve mission-critical problems for our customers and partners and make a positive impact on their business.”
Tideworks’ suite of scalable TOS solutions, combined with Brenock’s mobile-ready management tools will optimise operational efficiency, reduce costs and boost performance for key stakeholders across the supply chain.
“The disruption to the cruise industry has been unprecedented,” said Jason Grant, Vice President of Fleet Technology with Holland America Group. “We are excited about Tideworks’ and Brenock’s joint venture as we evaluate solutions tailored to our industry and the opportunity to increase collaboration across the maritime sector.”
“We are dedicated to helping cruise lines innovate and will be there to help them rebuild against serious market challenges,” Manus Walsh, President at Brenock added. “Working collaboratively with Tideworks and its partners will enable us to accelerate this innovation and deliver added value to our customers.”
