Aker BioMarine

Aker BioMarine, a biotech innovator and Antarctic krill-harvesting company, uses Boomi to automate and simplify processes while having a sharp focus on its sustainability efforts.

Business Goals

Aker BioMarine wanted to speed up its processes, while continuing its mission to improve human and planetary health.

The company’s fully transparent value chain stretches from sustainable krill harvesting in pristine Antarctic waters through its Montevideo logistics hub, Houston production plant, and all the way to customers around the world. This is where data management becomes paramount. Aker BioMarine wanted to avoid data silos and needed customer, employee, and wire information to flow in an agile way while eliminating the need for manual data entry.

Integration Challenges

Aker BioMarine deals with a vast amount of data. Harvest location GPS coordinates are recorded, and transportation routes are monitored to keep its product — krill — fresh. But without a suitable integration tool, data was difficult to manage and impossible to access in real time.

The company needed a way to track, manage, and access data all in one place, on demand. Its process of gathering information from multiple sources and inputting manually as needed wasn’t delivering the needed results.

How Boomi Helped

With Boomi, Aker BioMarine seamlessly connected its warehouse scanning system to an ERP system. Boomi Master Data Hub provides the biotech company with a single, always current version of company data, removing the need to manage data manually.

Boomi also helps to manage the data from Aker BioMarine’s Eco-Harvesting technology, which reduces by-catch to near-zero, to support the company’s sustainability promise.

With fully scalable IT infrastructure and reusable integrations replacing legacy technology, Aker BioMarine’s processes are now streamlined, resulting in faster deliveries.


Using Boomi, Aker BioMarine has realized benefits including:

  • A single, always current version of company data
  • Reduced manual processes and decreased human error
  • Fully scalable IT infrastructure, with integrations that can be reused every time a new application is added, resulting in faster deployment
  • Upgrades to the legacy labelling systems on vessels, improving debugging and resulting in zero product downtime

Aker BioMarine also plans to use Boomi for 15 additional integrations, including CRM, HR, and identity management systems.
