Connect3 launched to encourage adoption

ShipServ has launched Connect3, a new service  allowing shipowners and shipmanagers to get a taste of e-commerce on TradeNet by connecting to three major suppliers of their choice without any ShipServ charge.

Launched at the SMM exhibition in Hamburg, 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.

“It’s a no-cost way for buyers of try-ing 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 ShipServ TradeNet e-commerce platform is currently used by over 175 shipowners, managers and shipyards from all sectors of the maritime industry, managing over 7,500 vessels.  ShipServ is working very closely with its partners to roll out the service which will be completely free of ShipServ charges to all users of purchasing modules from the following maritime software providers: ABS NS5, 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 to as many companies as possible, regardless of their current purchasing solution, we hope it will encourage the continued adoption of e-commerce,” said Mr Skaarup.
