Stockholm, Sweden – October 18, 2021
The maritime industry is increasingly competitive with a growing need to conduct business in an agile way, responding to business opportunities on the global market. Leading shipbuilders like Damen Naval are advanced system integrators supplying platforms that meet high demands on performance, sustainability, and industrial collaboration.
The selection of ShareAspace will enable Damen Naval to improve and advance collaboration with suppliers and partners, introducing state of the art data sharing capabilities at the same time managing and securing access to intellectual property and restricted information. ShareAspace from Eurostep is the software selected to support Damen Naval to request, receive and review technical information from hundreds of suppliers and sub-contractors in vessel programs.
“Collaboration with external partners and suppliers is becoming increasingly important”, says Harm Dekker, Manager Procurement at Damen Naval. “The software suppliers of Damen are all specialized in their disciplines, and we appreciate the commitment from Eurostep and their focus on collaboration solutions. The selection of ShareAspace is an important step in advancing the capabilities of Damen Naval making us even more competitive and is another example of successful Swedish-Dutch cooperation”, ends Mr Dekker.
“We are extremely proud to have Damen Naval as client”, says Simon Pettersson, Director Defence Industry at Eurostep. “During the work leading up to this announcement, we have been impressed by the vision and commitment demonstrated by Damen Naval, to strengthen their collaboration capabilities and drive to move above and beyond how supplier integration is traditionally done in the maritime industry“, ends Mr Pettersson.
