Connect to the Data you need with Dataloy API

Integrate with our Open API to Build a Business Ecosystem

“Yeah, we already have an API”. I’ve heard that often. But often we make the mistake of thinking that having an API means having an API business. An API is a technical imperative to deliver a technology service. That service can be distributed in many ways, for example, via a web browser or an app or phone. 

So, you have an API, but the question is – do you use the API to enable business growth?

Every company’s journey down the road of digital transformation is different. Dataloy has been digital for over two decades – our work philosophy is embedded in openness and platform thinking, and therefore we’ve created a robust open API.

The purpose of APIs is to automate workflows, connect services and transfer data to automate workflows or create custom data views and reports from one or more applications in a single dashboard. They are extraordinary catalysts of technology.

For Dataloy, providing a bridge between the VMS and related maritime applications is crucial to allow customers to innovate at a faster rate, share information across disparate systems, and prevent being limited by where data lives. To truly achieve digital transformation, you must have the freedom and flexibility to innovate quickly.

Dataloy API is a connector framework that helps you bring together disparate systems to create a better experience, bi-directional data access, and integrate with industry-leading solutions. It also provides you with a simpler, faster, and more secure way to connect to different services, apps, cores, and systems.

The power of Open Access

With Dataloy API, you can connect internal or external disparate systems to Dataloy VMS in a secure environment via standardised authorisation and authentication protocols.

API connections Built to Scale.

The Dataloy API enables you to connect to the data that matters when it matters most. The Dataloy API is designed to connect Dataloy VMS to best in breed solutions for the maritime industry, helping you expand your product lines, increase the pace of innovation, and cut costs and time to integration. The flexible and scalable API can integrate Dataloy VMS seamlessly into company service infrastructure.

Open Innovation

The Dataloy Voyage Management System (VMS) enables you to work smoothly across best-of-breed tools and solutions, making sharing and collaboration seamless and secure. You can also develop applications that integrate with Dataloy VMS, and create robust functionality in your application using the Dataloy API.

Making Maritime Open

Innovate faster and build your open maritime strategy. Avoid vendor lock-in with an open-source, open-standard, solution that gives you and your customers flexibility and control of who is accessing their data.


The benefit of having an API can range from better IT practice to diversification of the business. The possibilities to innovate and increase efficiency are endless. But to maximize its potential, we look to deliver “open” APIs. Building and contributing to a strong functioning ecosystem has never been more important. I’m particularly excited by how the evolution of a collaborative platform is creating the opportunity for us to deliver value beyond aggregation of data and that APIs are a crucial component in providing that.
