“We’ve moved into a larger office facility, centrally located in downtown Houston and are adding additional professional staff,” said Nick Skinner, PortVision’s vice president of business development.  “Our growing user community representing marine terminals, agents, vessel owners, service providers, law firms, and government agencies is driving our expansion.  Our users are leveraging PortVision to drive new levels of operational efficiency, safety, and security.  Our increased presence will ensure that we continue to meet the needs of our growing subscriber base.”
