Datawerf assists maritime SME’s in digitalising business operations

Datawerf, the renewed innovation program that builds on the success of its pilot phase, will assist 30 entrepreneurs from the maritime and manufacturing industries. Datawerf will select 30 candidates who will enjoy intensive support in achieving their digital ambitions. Over a period of six weeks, entrepreneurs receive practical support from a digital expert, with meetings twice a week. This expert will analyse their digital questions and offer specific solutions as well as a plan of action, allowing entrepreneurs to optimally profit from the advantages that digital technology has to offer for their business.

Acquiring and retaining personnel

“With Datawerf we want to send a powerful message to maritime and manufacturing SME’s: standing still in the current situation, means getting left behind in the international market. If you don’t try to tackle issues like minimal margins, shortage of personnel and the transition to data-driven business, you risk being overtaken by competitors. Datawerf offers the perspective that business need to confidently take the next step and realise their growth-ambitions. After all, who does not want to improve his business?” – Dominique Nieuwpoort, program co-ordinator at Datawerf.
