VITO Remote Sensing provides a processing platform for satellite data that empowers their community of Earth Observation experts to develop innovative services with applications across multiple industries, locally and globally. However, despite offering valuable services to their clients, VITO faced a significant challenge of increasing their visibility to a wider audience.
Challenges for VITO Remote Sensing
VITO recognized that they needed an online marketplace to promote their services and connect with a broader audience, including the general public. They approached Cyrex with a request to build the perfect Remote Sensing Marketplace Platform that would help them achieve this goal.
The Cyrex development team worked closely with VITO to build an extensive Marketplace on top of our API Suite product framework. Our solution enabled monetization, open-source contributions, and resourceful features like billing and reporting, all of which helped VITO create the perfect services offering. With the developed Terrascope Marketplace, VITO could share their algorithms and workflows with the user community, without worrying about the technicalities of publishing a service.
By publishing their algorithm as a service, VITO has significantly increased their visibility, exposure, and reach to a broader audience that provides valuable feedback. The Marketplace relies on standardized web interfaces, making it easy for users to access services. Each service has an attractive visual description, providing an overview of its capabilities.
Thanks to the team’s expertise and the Terrascope Marketplace’s innovative features, VITO has accomplished its goal of reaching a wider audience with its Remote Sensing services. VITO has not only gained visibility but also expanded its impact and contribution to industries worldwide. The Marketplace has enabled VITO to showcase its expertise, attract new clients, and create value for existing ones.
Our collaboration with VITO was out of this world and we were delighted to recieve the following recommendation from their team
“By combining Cyrex’s expert knowledge on marketplaces and our expertise in earth observation, we have created a beautiful online marketplace where we can start advertising our services to the general public. During this project, Cyrex assisted us in tackling some of our biggest challenges, which resulted in extending our online service offering with features such as billing and reporting.”
