Spotlighting digital initiatives at Singapore Maritime Week
Widely recognized as Asia’s anchor maritime and offshore event, WSS Marine Products participated in Sea Asia 2019 from 9 to 11 April. WSS was a proud co-sponsor at the Sea Asia PIER71 Innovation Arena, a platform for start-ups to showcase technologically driven solutions to address challenges identified by the maritime industry.
In line with our belief in constant innovation, it was a great opportunity for the team to generate buzz about its customer-focused digital developments. The Augmented Reality app and 3D printed parts were put up at the exhibition for visitors to experience these digital offerings first-hand.
Later in the week, Nakul Malhotra, Vice President Technical Solutions & Marketing, Wilhelmsen Ships Service, spoke at the SMTC Technology and Start-up panel discussions.
As one of the key panelists, he shared about the importance of having the right mindset and organizational culture to implement digitalization strategies. The session also drew attention to industry trends and challenges of putting such technologies into practice, where Nakul advocated the impact meaningful innovations can have on the efficiency of operations. He also reinforced how collaborative efforts with start-ups are a powerful dynamic in the maritime ecosystem.
Bridging maritime domain knowledge with new-age technology is the key to success.
