Marine Manufacturers find ... "There’s an APP for that"

Pictured is our own Martime Global News App, which includes daily news from MarineNews and sister publication Maritime Reporter, has more than 10,000 downloads since its inception.

Marine product providers turn to high tech tools to enhance service, information and – yes – their bottom lines. There’s an APP for that. You’ve heard it before and in many contexts. Increasingly, the global waterfront is getting into the act, too. Typically available for iPhones and/or any kind of smart phones, these Apps are perfect for the busy executive. Putting information at your fingertips, when you want it and no matter where you might be; is at the heart of it all. Like New Wave Media, MarineNews magazine’s parent, many companies are harnessing the utility of a well-designed App to deliver clear, concise data. Where Maritime Global News brings the latest news, updated regularly, marine vendors of all kinds are using Apps to deliver the good news about their products. Sherwin-Williams Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings’ SeaGuard, an app that provides users with protective coating recommendations for VLCC/VLBCs, chemical tankers and OSV/PSVs, debuted in October. The app is optimized for both iOS and Android. A first for any coating manufacturer, SeaGuard provides on-the-go coating recommendations from stem to stern. Designed to help port engineers and fleet managers access accurate and up-to-date coatings information via mobile technology, it’s also a convenient alternative to bulky binders stuffed with outdated product data sheets
