Unique Group Becomes Caris Agent for Nigeria and Kenya
Unique Group has been selected by Teledyne Caris as a distributor for its hydrographic charting software solutions in Nigeria and Kenya.
As part of the distributor agreement, Unique Group’s Sharjah office will offer Caris’ full range of Ping-to-Chart hydrographic software solutions to customers within the region.
The CARIS Ping-to-Chart software solutions include HIPS and SIPS, Bathy DataBASE (BDB), Hydrographic Production Database (HPD), Caris Onboard, S-57 Composer and Paper Chart Composer among others, the company said.
Niels Nijhuis, account manager at Teledyne CARIS said, “We’re pleased to appoint Unique Group as a distributor of our hydrographic charting software solutions in Nigeria and Kenya. Both coastal countries are significant to the hydrographic charting industry, and so, this is a strategic move for Teledyne Caris to establish market presence there. We have a fruitful association with Unique Group for the Middle East region currently, so it was logical for us to partner with them for newer territories in Africa.”
Sharad Kumar, director of Business Development at Unique Group added, “Nigeria is a strategic market for hydrographic surveying operations within the African sub-continent and our partnership with Teledyne CARIS in this region will help bolster our global reach and expand our innovative portfolio of hydrographic software solutions in the region.”
