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.
The first MATE inspection was performed back in 2016 and the tool has been successfully used for monitoring vessel condition ever since. We are certainly very proud of its achievements and would like to thank everyone for all the work they have done to make this possible.
In addition, we would like to mention some significant factors that have played a huge role in its success. MATE is truly a market driven tool that can be easily customised to meet a client’s specific needs. When a survey is carried out within BMT’s Global Surveyor Network, including over 300 surveyors in over 500 locations, data is compiled in MATE, showing transparency and highlighting risk areas.
Especially in a year like 2020, with all of the circumstances and limitations surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, MATE has proven itself to be an important tool. A MATE inspection can be performed worldwide and can easily provide vital information needed for safe shipping.
