Multiport contracts Quantum for new web portal

The “Multiport” Ship Agencies Network today confirmed their contract with Quantum to build a multi-phased web site and portal, that will at the end of its planned development be an Industry Standard.

The planned website and portal is a 4 stage development of which the first two stages will be delivered by September. The portal will have a significant “Members” transaction area, and will provide a number of advanced features for Multiport Clients, Registered Users as well as Multiport members themselves. It will also prove to be a significant marketing tool for Multiport.

The web portal being designed for the later phases will allow a complete range of port and hub activities, have global vessel tracking, cost calculators and many more features including advanced intelligence and communications.

Multiport is a Global Agency Network, that brings together the No.1 agency house in each country into a single global entity. The group stands for quality and standards and the membership acceptance is through a stringent whetting process, bringing into play trading strengths, coverage, strong marketing, and impeccable financials. The Multiport network extends to 108 countries and 1500 ports and serves over 300 clients, making it the worlds largest Global Agency Network.

Quantum is proud of the faith placed by Multiport on us, and it is a testament to our understanding of all facets of transportation, and our ability to translate this into a value proposition. This contract strengthens our Web Design team, and we believe that this being a severe need in shipping, will continue to grow rapidly.

Quantum is pleased to announce that the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers - a pillar of the maritime industry, has selected them for their new website and portal, which is to be launched to coincide with their annual prize giving event.

 The website design will be in multiple phases, and will start with a completely new look and feel, delivering advanced features to the students and alumni. It will incorporate a ''members area'' where the combined equity of thousands of MICS's and FICS's can be brought together into a strong brand.

 Further developments being discussed could include a portal, members networking, communications and discussions, e-learning and a whole host of features that involve the large group of ICS members that are in the echelon's of power in most marine organizations.

 The ICS is an organization committed to the wellbeing of the industry, by maintaining standards, transfer of knowledge and the overall betterment of the fraternity. The new website will dramatically leverage each of these core elements, while retaining focus on the student body and the learning that the ICS imparts to thousands each year.
