PDMS’ innovative ferry software to be showcased at international Shippax conference

11 February 2015


PDMS are delighted to announce that they have signed up as official sponsors and exhibitors to the Thirteenth Shippax Ferry Shipping Conference 2015, which will be hosted in Rotterdam, on April 21-23 on board P & O's Pride of Rotterdam.  

The annual Ferry Shipping Conference, founded and organised by Shippax and BOLT Consulting is one of the largest conferences in the ferry industry, with around 400 ferry shipping delegates expected in attendance from Europe and further afield.  The heavily anticipated conference will cover commercial performance, industry insight and debates, and will feature exciting industry speakers and an exhibition with key industry players.

The conference comes at a perfect time for PDMS, who have recently expanded their ferry ticketing and reservations offering with their powerful Compass ferry ticketing and reservations product, through their UK subsidiary, Professional Data Management Services (UK) Limited, who acquired certain parts of the business and assets of Maxima Information Group in September 2014.  Boasting a strong and long term client base, PDMS’s ferry software is currently in use by Caledonian MacBrayne, Orkey Ferries, Pentland Ferries, Shetland Islands Council, Western Ferries and Ticket Hour.

Commenting on the news of PDMS’ plans to showcase Compass across the international ferry, David Stickland, Sales Director of PDMS said, “Having attended the 39th Annual Interferry Conference in Vancouver last year, we are particularly excited to be exploring further relationships at the 2015 Ferry Shipping Conference.  Last year was an extremely positive year for us in terms of strategic growth and market positioning and this exhibition will provide us with the ideal platform from which to advance our Compass ferry ticketing and reservation software into the wider market”.
