Groundbreaking Inland River Operating System Debuts June 1 at the Inland Marine Expo
Integrative Technology System Designed to "Keep Towboatin' Simple" Will Catalyze Evolution of Inland Waterways Operations
By: Harbor Lynx
According to CEO Robert LeBlanc, the new inland river operating system employs cutting-edge but easy-to-use technology, offering a wide range of features that simplify river fleet management and enhance operational efficiency. The system integrates dispatching, real-time tracking, task automation, maintenance, compliance, billing, contract management, fleet optimization, tax calculations and cybersecurity, providing a comprehensive solution for inland waterway operators.
At its core, the Harbor Lynx system emphasizes customization and adaptability, allowing for the addition of future modules that evolve with changing needs in the industry. This unique approach ensures the system remains at the forefront of technological advancements, shaping the river industry to "Keep Towboatin' Simple" through integrating technology.
Speaking about the system's potential impact, CEO Robert LeBlanc stated, "Much like containerization of the shipping industry evolved from the invention of the modern shipping container in the mid-1950s, Harbor Lynx uses integrating technology that promises to systematize the entire operational ecosystem of inland river shipping. The cost savings for shipping managers may eventually be on par with the dramatic reductions achieved as shipping containers became ubiquitous in the 1950s."
The Harbor Lynx system was developed by Chief Technology Officer Nick Soniat, a New Orleans native and 15-year veteran software engineer. "Robert was frustrated with the industry's disjointed web of software programs and tasked us to put our boots on the deck and build a system to truly help towboaters do their jobs without being more complicated,"
Co-founder and Director of Engineering Tony Geeck is a pioneer in wireless networking for the river industry and creator of one of the first computer-based barge dispatch systems. "As an industry veteran, I know the problems and I'm excited to see how this system is performing on the river. It integrates all the critical components of river transportation logistics," he said.
The system is available now, is fast to deploy and can be customized to meet the specific needs of each customer. For more information, visit http://HarborLynx.net.
