DeCurtis and Favendo unite for real-time location services 

Decurtis Corporation and Germany-based Favendo have come together to maximise cruise market access to each company's location and proximity enabled solutions.

DeCurtis — which provides location and proximity enabled solutions for complex indoor environments, focussing on health, operations, and safety and security — will partner with a specialist in mobile tracking and navigation solutions, Favendo, which to date has its technology installed on board seven ships.

The products sold by each company will be available from either partner moving forward.

Robust and flexible

‘By integrating our suites and the advanced infrastructure from Favendo, clients will have vastly more robust options and flexibility for location and proximity enhanced environments’, said Derek Fournier, president and CEO, DeCurtis Corporation. ‘This partnership brings together technology leaders from across the world to address the needs of clients both large and small … across a far larger market’.

Favendo CEO Arnaud Becuwe added, ‘This partnership means our customers will receive a whole catalogue of services that go far beyond location and proximity solutions.

‘Customers will now have access to these services through a single point of contact, and this will considerably simplify and accelerate the planning and installation processes’.


DeCurtis’ most recent solution, DeCurtis Shield, can screen data for enhanced health and safety on board ships.
