ShipServ Pages to see significant enhancements
ImageSince its launch in April 2006, ShipServ Pages has rapidly become the who’s who of the Supplier world. Hundreds of owners from around the world are now using the tool to search for supplies by company or brand name, category or port and country.
In fact, every 8 minutes someone is using Pages to source new Suppliers. We have learnt a lot from our customers over the last 18 months and in response to customer demand, we are releasing two exciting new areas of functionality in the next few weeks.
We cannot say much now, but if you would like to be the first to hear about these new features, please email email@example.com.

In Sales, Simon Osborne has joined from ISMA to head up the Pages business, and joins the newly formed sales management team of himself, Steve Cobley (recently joined from Click Commerce) and Lars Bratshuag (a Summer joiner from Capto). All report to Freddy Ingemann, SVP of Sales.
Finally John Watton joins ShipServ from Amdocs as Vice President of Marketing, reporting to Paul Ostergaard, CEO.
Additionally, the company has outgrown some of its existing premises, leading to a move to newer, larger offices in London in October and the same scheduled for the Manila office later this month.
