We have reached an important milestone with MATE. As of today, our cloud-based tool called MATE has been used for more than 2,000 surveys. MATE captures and tracks any and all aspects of a vessel’s condition, following a pre-defined and often tailor made inspection format, and can visualise its development over time.
