In the interview, while explaining how the supply chain could be better connected, Rey-Herme said: “Today you have people all around the world who are trying to plan the same event, but they don't do that together.
“From some calls, we've identified five different people working on five different plans for the same code for the same vessels.
“We can put that into the Cloud and allow people to use one plan and collaborate on that plan.”
