â€œThe maritime industry is on the cusp of radical and far reaching advances in technology, and there are ever increasing factors for shipping companies to consider.Â
What challenges do all these developments pose to our industry, and how can we use these to our advantage? With companies now considering strategies for managing security and risk, looking at ways to implement cost reduction, learning about plans for unmanned ships, and seeing the increasing development and influence of the maritime cloud and the Internet of Things, it is clear that sustainable innovation and disruptive influence in shipping is becoming more important than ever.â€
Shipdex is an important innovation allowing manufacturers to produce, manage under configuration and quality control and then share with customers every technical information (drawings, technical manuals, etc.) .
Customers will not receive â€œpages of informationâ€ (paper or pdf manuals)Â but information in xml format based on a standard and mandatory structure from all the manufacturers, giving the possibility to automatically share the information with technician ashore and onboard. Moreover the information in Shipdex format can be automatically imported into corporate IT systems (ERP, CMMS, etc.).
