Launch of ‘Internet use in Shipping’ Survey 2011
Our annual ‘Internet use in Shipping’ survey is now live and we would be very grateful if you could spare a couple of minutes of your time to give us your input with the results to be presented at SmartShipping later this month.
Last year’s survey proved that the shipping industry was adopting internet business processes, but there were still obstacles – namely a lack of understanding and familiarity – which limited the use during a busy working day for shipowners, managers and suppliers, so we want to see if attitudes have changed. Find out more about internet use in shipping.
Introducing ShipServ Connect – a newsletter for our Buyer community
It gives me great pleasure to bring you the first edition of our Client Newsletter aimed specifically at our global base of ship owner, ship management and ship yard clients, otherwise known as the community of ShipServ buyers.
Over the last ten years, our buyer base has grown considerably in size and this has been matched by the vast expansion of our Client Relations department from a small team of a couple of people based in Copenhagen to a team of more than 20 people across the world.
The purpose of this newsletter is to provide you with the most up-to-date information about the latest ShipServ product developments, partner integration news and allow our clients insight into the personalities and responsibilities of our Client Relations team, that of course starts with our Customer Service Centre in Manila. We also aim to inform you of all developments on ShipServ Pages that will improve your sourcing process. Click here to read Connect issue 1.
