Infor quote:

"Maintenance in the maritime industries is not just about optimising efficiency," said Bas Beemsterboer, EAM Business Consulting Manager, EMEA, Infor. "Ships and offshore facilities are often large, incredibly complicated pieces of machinery or assets on a scale that most businesses simply do not have the capacity to handle".

"In this context, asset management is not just a strategy to optimise capacity: it is the very ability to actually do business profitably and effectively. Building on this recognition, Infor has developed a strong track record in the maritime industry and we have very much enjoyed hosting the pre-conference workshop and presentation in Rotterdam."
