Himschoot Consulting celebrates 15 year anniversary in 2016!
This summer will mark 15 years since we founded our company. Much has changed since we started but
the core values remain the same: provide technology to help ideas grow and prosper.
We are planning to celebrate accordingly and thank the many partners and companies we've
been privileged to work with. The future couldn't be brighter: the company is
doing well and the outlook is very, very bright.
New office in Monaco!
We've moved offices in Monaco. We left the Boulevard d'Italie behind and moved to the centre of Fontvieille, to the Rue du Gabian no 2.
Although it's 600 meters from the closest Starbucks, the new facility has a faster uplink (1gbps, and very reliable) and much better quality of offices.
Major growth in Payment API, in partnership with Sea ID
The Payment API we develop together with partner Sea ID has grown tremendously - as much as 80% - in early 2016: new functionality and improved
control through new API calls has been added, commissions are improving and we are now multi-currency and multi-brand.
We see this part of our business grow even further in the near future.
Jeppesen (Boeing) funds Crowd Sourced Bathymetry project with HC and partner Sea ID

scaling worldwide. Details to follow.
Renewing end broadening relations with E3 Systems Group, Mallorca
After two years of intense collaboration with E3 Systems Group in Mallorca, today we've renewed and
intensified our relation with them to further develop services and automation throughout 2015 and 2016. E3 plans to grow in key
areas and we believe in the story they are writing. Our combined efforts will make a result that is greater than the sum of the parts.
We'd like to stress that the interactions with E3 have been nothing but positive and would like to thank the whole team there, and
especially Group Managing Director Roger Horner in Palma and our principal lead contact Maribel Espallardo in Brooklyn New York for the
past two years. Long may it continue.
Successful completion of phase one of the CONNECT billing platform (CBP) with E3 Systems Group, Mallorca
The core of the CBP has been successfully delivered and draws very positive reactions. "Beyond expectations at this stage of development" and
"part of the DNA of the group" to name only a few. Over the course of the next couple of months, optimisation of the
solution and expansion into CRM and ERP are planned. The CBP interfaces with an in-house Microsoft Dynamics Navision platform,
Active Directory authentication and a client portal through a custom JSON/XML API. Himschoot Consulting has been
heavily invested in the development of the platform since late September 2012. We couldn't be happier with the work
we've been able to deliver to E3 and can be genuinely proud of the impact this will have on their business. 2/9/2013
Crowd Sourced Bathymetry and GPS hardening projects with Sea-ID and the University of Texas in Austin
We have started two projects to deliver results by the Monaco Yacht Show in September 2013 regarding bathymetry aboard superyachts and
GPS hardening. There will be a full information pack available soon. Together with long-term partner Sea-ID Ltd we are developing new technology
to support these projects, in a combination of hardware and software. First tests started mid-March and show tremendous potential.

E3 Systems Group, headquartered on the beautiful Baleare island of Mallorca signs with Himschoot Consulting through its partner
EMS Ltd. to develop a new airtime billing platform that will enable E3 to grow this key part of their business in the
coming years. Himschoot Consulting's expertise in billing and financial management platforms
provides a good basis for this long-term alliance. The project is not limited to a purely technical solution

Online Certification platform with Sea-ID Ltd., Nevis, Bahamas
The Professional Yachting Association confirmed its commitment to Sea-ID Ltd. to having a certification and billing platform
developed for its ICTC program (Interior Crew Training and Certification). Sea-ID Ltd. and Himschoot Consulting have partnered
to supply this solution in time for the Monaco Yacht Show in September 2012. The certification platform will after the initial launch
be opened up to support all certificates held by mariners and assets in the marine industry. Sea-ID has initiated trials
with several training providers and institutes for an alpha version launch during the summer of 2012.
Focus on 4G with EMS Ltd., Bournemouth, U.K.
Identified as a tremendous area for growth in 2012 and 2013, 4G solutions for large yachts that roam internationally are
in incredible demand. EMS Ltd. and Himschoot Consulting are committed to deliver a state of the art solution by the end of 2012
with VPN channel bundling and global IP coverage as an add-on monthly option. After the success of the BOSS-system we developed
