E-commerce provider allows buyers the opportunity to connect three major suppliers to trading platform for free
London, UK, 4th September, 2012.
ShipServ, the leading e-marketplace, today announced the launch of its new service Connect3, which will allow shipowners and shipmanagers to use its TradeNet platform to connect to three major suppliers of their choice without any ShipServ charge.
The new service will provide users with a real taste of the benefits of e-commerce allowing purchasing managers to instantly control and cut purchasing costs and speed up order cycle times.
The Connect3 service will also provide users with full access to reporting data and provides owners and managers with the ability to benchmark vital supplier KPI data and allow them to work more closely with suppliers.
“It’s a no-cost way for buyers of trying out e-commerce with three of their major suppliers. It takes next to no time to set-up and provides instant reporting data so that they can benchmark their purchasing activities and collaborate with suppliers on response times,” said Kim Skaarup, Chief Operating Officer, ShipServ.
The service will initially be rolled out free of ShipServ charges to all users of purchasing modules from the following maritime software providers: ABS NS5, BASS, Consultas, Danaos, GL Maritime Software, ShipNet, SpecTec, Teomaki, and Tero Marine.
“We are kicking off this project by targeting existing users of our current maritime software partners, but our aim is to roll this project to as many companies as possible regardless of their current purchasing solution,” said Mr Skaarup.
The ShipServ TradeNet e-commerce platform is currently used by over 175 shipowners, managers and shipyards from all sectors of the maritime industry, managing over 7,000 vessels including A.P. Moller-Maersk, Teekay Shipping, MOL Shipmanagement, MISC, E.R Schiffahrt, Holland America Line and Keppel Shipyard.
