Quarterly News

2020 Product Updates

At Q88, we are continually innovating to help our maritime partners keep up with new work demands. The following highlights are just a few of the product and platform enhancements we have made throughout the year.


New Dashboard
Use this new dashboard as your starting point. From there, easily select your vessel, create a questionnaire, see officer matrix history, inspections, and certificates as well as the latest AIS position for your selected vessel.
Inspection Heat Map
Due to new restrictions on ports, vessels, and crews around the globe, we have released a Heat Map feature that will aggregate data from SIRE and CDI inspections that have been completed or planned in the last month.


Q88 dry continues to grow at a rapid pace, helping our customers maximize fleet utilization and ensure vessel suitability. So far this year, the number of vessels listed on Q88 dry has grown by 32.4%.
