"With Assistant, we no longer need to meet so often. Therefore, we have cut our daily morning meetings down to one per week"

World Marine Offshore provides logistics solutions in offshore wind, oil and gas. The fast-growing company has around 150 employees working with shipping companies worldwide.

The 22 members on the management team have used Assistant constantly at decision-making meetings since October 2017.
