Truly independent, long established and exceptional value

The preference for tried and trusted technologies

In these days of fast-moving technology, new products and services come and go. Often, they quickly launch on a wave of optimism but then some of them disappear over the horizon just as fast. It’s a sign of our times that this phenomenon matches up with our ‘throwaway’ world where there is so much focus on fast moving consumer trends.

The shipping industry, on the other hand, takes a long view and choosing tried and trusted technologies that have stood the test of time is really the only game in town. When seeking new solutions to fit with digital transformation strategies and to sharpen up operations, shipping companies select names that are long standing, and which have gained industry respect over time.

Of course, the ease of use, portability and follow the sun support that are just some of the many features that attract users.  But that is not the only reason. Clients look to Q88 because it matches the shipping industry’s preference for permanence and heritage – established, tried and trusted companies and technologies.
