Nautilus is building artificial intelligence to advance the efficiency of ocean commerce. We deliver technology to help shipping companies minimize fuel consumption, maximize operational efficiency, and optimize fleet performance. By arming ship owners and operators with real-time predictive decision support, Nautilus is reducing greenhouse gas emissions and making global trade sustainable.
Ocean shipping consumes over $100 billion dollars of fuel every year, and up to 30% of it can be saved. For owner-operators, reliance on manually collected and analyzed data makes it difficult to optimize fleet performance in real-time. By providing a unified data platform that leverages machine learning, Nautilus helps its clients make better decisions to maximize the return on each ship and every voyage. For our clients, this means they drive closer collaboration, greater transparency, and stronger accountability across their global teams every day.
Client Success owns the client relationship post-sales. The team’s goal is to maximize client value with every interaction including ship activation, onboarding/training users, managed services, monitoring client health, and identifying expansion opportunities. The team consists of a worldwide team of Client Success Managers who work with a set of named accounts, Deployment specialists who handle data integrations, and Voyage Analysts who use the tool to provide daily email recommendations to vessels to reduce fuel and GHG emissions. Together these teams, located in Singapore, Paris, London and New York, are responsible for empowering our clients to become expert users and achieve amazing results. The Client Success team also works closely with cross-functional teams, such as Sales and Product, so support an end-to-end high value client experience.
