Why do ERP Systems still dominate over Online Platforms in our Industry?

Finishing off a week of hard work in sunny Hamburg harbor!

About [bluester]

We founded Bluester as a German limited company in Dezember 2016. Prior we already had been investing and working on building the [bluester] MarketPlace for more than 3 years.
The idea for the [bluester] MarketPlace was born out of our own experience as Service Broker and Provider of Safety Services in the Maritime Industry. At the time we held service brokerage as a valuable service to Ship Managers mainly looking for a possibility to outsource certain corporate functions.
With the clear advantages we saw in online marketplaces that serve to the interest of both sides of business - Ship Owners/Managers and Service Providers - we embarked on the creation of what is available to our customers today.

Our early supporters were the European Union that granted financing from its “Seed and Startup Fonds” and a very renowned Hamburg based company lawyer who had taken a minority stake in our company.

Headquartered in Ahrensburg, Germany, Bluester GmbH today employs more than 15 coworkers in a remote setup in different countries. We believe that a network setup without a shared office ideally serves to the needs of our customers as well as to our own.

@[bluester] we believe in people cooperating and working together and we dedicate our creativity to connect people. Our aim is to make business safe, transparent and easy and to build the one central online marketplace for the Maritime Industry. All our decisions we base on sincerity and integrity.

True co-operative, ‘win-win’ based business relations, ethical business, transparency and compliance are core issues we like to bring forward in our industry. To demonstrate this, we have become member of Transparency International. Our cooperation partners DNV GL, Bureau Veritas and MarTrust are fully supportive with these central concerns of ours.
