Jon Skule Storheil, CEO Awilco LNG:

"We joined in on this R&D project because the original idea is highly interesting, and the product has the potential of increasing the efficiency of operational processes and information gathering. The prospect of working with such an interdisciplinary team will help develop our organization.

We have decided to allocate our time and internal resources to this project, and we deem it worth it as long as this allocation is utilized as a long term investment. Shipping is a relatively conservative industry, and this probably rings true for most of workers in this industry as well. Hence, we might need a "nudge" to promote information symmetry, knowledge sharing, and collaboration. It is therefore refreshing and satisfying to see the progression that has been made in the time that has past.

It has without doubt been illuminating to work with the team at Maritime Optima, and we are excited to continue this collaboration. We strongly believe that together, we can develop an effective and user-friendly software that can serve various parts of the industry."

Tor Augdal, Commercial Director in Solvang

We joined this research & development project because we see a great need for shipping companies to contribute to developing an independent, modern and user-friendly software at a reasonable price.

We believe in projects that combine industry experience with digital expertise and that these will create great value for many.
It has also been interesting to work together with a start-up, that incorporates both industry experience and digital competence.

We have little time and there are many start-ups, so we wanted to work with someone who dares to bet and who we think is a stayer. It has been interesting to work with this team and we are excited to continue this collaboration. We strongly believe that together, we can develop an effective and user-friendly software that can serve various parts of the industry.

Jostein Bjørgo (Commercial Director of Wilson Eurocarriers AS)

We joined this research & development project because it is exciting with a start-up environment combining industry experience and digital expertise. We have learnt through the Covid-19 period that we have to work a little differently in the future so the timing to attend this project was very good. We joined in on this R&D project because there is an apparent need for shipping companies to be included in the process of developing independent and user-friendly software.

Developing a new user-friendly software and satisfying the demands of many teams in an organisation is demanding, and on our site it takes a lot of time to contribute properly.
We therefore wanted to work with a start up we think will be there also in the future and who we believe has the ability to succeed. Working with the Maritime Optima team has been instructive and we look forward to continuing.

We fully believe in projects that combine industry experience with digital competence will provide the highest utility value.
