Two years on since the formation of the ATPI Group's expanded specialist
shipping, offshore and energy sector brand - following the acquisition
of Griffin Travel - ATPI Griffinstone's commitment to making savings and
streamlining processes has ensured the global provider continues to go
from strength to strength.
Since launching the combined business in early 2015, the travel
management specialist's international clients have benefitted from the
development of new innovations, each designed to ensure companies can
process their travel as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.
The recently released _ATPI CrewLink(tm)_ a workflow management platform
has been upgraded and rebranded. The system is vital for businesses who
manage the many challenges for those involved in the day to day
organisation of global crew movements and multiple manning agencies and
has revolutionised the way they manage their crew logistics, whilst
delivering total cost transparency and control.
Similarly, as part of their expanding services for the industry, the
company has also developed _ATPI Door to Deck(tm)_ which integrates port
agency services under one function, ensuring management has a seamless
system for moving crew from their point of origin to boarding the vessel
or rig and vice versa.
Gary Pearce, the ATPI Group's chief commercial officer said:
"It's been a tough time for many of our customers in these sectors.
Falling oil prices and overcapacity in the shipping industry has
presented us with the opportunity to prove our worth. During
challenging times it is especially critical to understand the role that
the right tools can play in improving productivity, optimising value and
managing complex travel needs effectively, flexibly and responsibly.
Innovation is at the heart of what we do and our technology and product
solutions are having a significant impact on the way our clients do
business. We hope to further cement our position as the go-to company
for providing simple solutions to the energy and shipping industry's
most complex travel requirements."
Looking to the year ahead, Pearce added:
"As the World Trade Organisation forecasts steady trade growth in 2017
of up to 3 per cent across the world, we are already seeing a cautious
upturn in travel requirements as confidence slowly returns. We look
forward to continuing to deliver our seamless service with enhanced
specialisms in the destinations most relevant to our clients needs."
Recently the group has also announced a number of high-profile
businesses wins which include Aberdeenshire-based Avanteq, leading
Malaysian international offshore oilfield services provider, Bumi Armada
Berhad, Swire Pacific Offshore and Prosafe a leading owner and operator
of semi-submersible accommodation vessels.

successful operations in corporate travel, shipping and energy travel,
sports and corporate event management. The ATPI Group is at the
forefront of travel technology development including online booking,
