The eGenie Forum will bring together relevant industry players to set standards for documentation and products. This includes defining product UOMs and descriptions. The Forum will also produce digital solutions to improve maritime processes, including those relating to supply chain management in the maritime industry.
The eGenie Forum will hold separate meetings for different initiatives with interested parties to chart the way forward. This augments the Forum’s position as a think-tank that bridges the gap between the different industry bodies, producing a win-win situation for all parties.
For now, eGenie Forum’s focus is on harmonising different standards between the industry bodies. Once this is done, eGenie can diversify into areas such as provisions, stores, spares and chemicals that would be of help to the various parties involved.
By embracing digitalisation, eGenie Forum hopes to reform the perception of the maritime industry to be seen as pliant and responsive.
