Using IMPA Codes in ShipServ Pages

Our last Connect covered our alliance with the International Maritime Purchasing Association (IMPA) to simplify and speed up product sourcing through our online supplier directory ShipServ Pages.

We are pleased to say the IMPA product codes are now  live and displayed automatically to purchasing managers using ShipServ Pages to source suppliers.

By automatically-suggesting IMPA codes for product searches, we hope that buyers will save time in locating specific parts or products. Buyers can also use the IMPA code where known, to search for specific products directly.

ShipServ already works with IMPA to licence their Marine Stores Guide through our ShipCat Catalogue Management tool so this is a natural extension of the partnership.
