With an increasingly digitized maritime environment, shipping companies are working hard to comply with new regulations, optimize operations to remain competitive, reduce costs, and create efficiencies on new levels. Moreover, IT managers face the heavy burden of ensuring that shipping companies can keep pace with such a significant step forward, even if they lack the proper resources to do so. What the merchant maritime industry currently lacks is an easy-to-deploy system which allows collaboration between all these facets, connecting every aspect of the shipping process from
tools, to people, to technology.
