Innovating in Tough Times – Lessons for the Maritime Industry

Stephen Shapiro is a long-standing friend of ShipServ. In fact, he’s presented at two of our major events in recent years. His business is helping companies understand how they can innovate to increase profits, cut costs and (right now) avoid the recession.

We love innovation (in fact we recently won the First Tuesday Award 2009 for UK’s Most Promising Internet Company for that very thing) and as a result we just love Stephen.  In a recent interview he answered 5 questions about Innovating in Tough Times. We liked his answers so much, we thought we’d share them with you. Mainly as we’ve probably never seen such a concise summary of why, if you haven’t done so already, you should be investing in ShipServ to innovate your purchasing operations and drive out costs and increase profits.
