Peak Group has the goal to become a significant player in the European shipping industry. The company was established in 2005 and is facing rapid growth. It currently operates 25-30 dry cargo, project and self discharging vessels in sizes ranging from 2000 dwt to 6000 dwt.
The cloud based ERP system Xledger is integrated with Dataloy Voyage Management System (VMS), an operational chartering system calculating voygaes and voyage profit and loss on behalf of ship owner and agent. The integration provides the customer with easy access to financial and operational information, a unique combination for managing a business.
“The solution Xledger integrated with Dataloy VMS is offering everything we were looking for, Steinhaug says with enthusiasm.”

Reasonable, flexible and efficient
We see great potential ahead of us. For several years we have been looking for a system where we still can use our already well implemented operational system Dataloy VMS. Our decision to start using Xledger was based on the fact that we could extract, use and optimize the financial information this tool gives us, Bjørn Steinhaug, Chartering Manager and partner in Peak Group, says. In the search for such a system we had requirements like reasonable to operate and use, flexible, easy accessible, efficient and intuitive. On our wish list was also a system that optimizes and presents information in a simple visual way, in addition to removing duplicate information in operation and accounting. We have spent a lot of time looking for a system like this. However, we quickly decided that VIEW Maritime was the partner for us. The solution Xledger integrated with Dataloy VMS is offering everything we were looking for, Steinhaug says with enthusiasm.
A step ahead
The shipping market has been under a lot of pressure since the world financial crisis in 2008. The has led to an enormous focus on profitability and cash flow. If you want to survive, you need to always be one step ahead and continuously improve. Hence, we need to optimize all our processes, Steinhaug says. It is not enough to deliver the best product to our customers, we also must get the overview and keep cost down. We need to improve and renew continuously, and we enlarge our fleet to meet the customers requirements and market’s needs. Peak Group also need a tool to manage cash flow, especially since we need to grasp the possibilities when they occur. The integration Xledger/Dataloy make sure that all of this is handled efficient and precisely.
