eVantage Technology interviewed Captain Mike Meade – Chief Executive Officer of M3 Marine – to learn more about his experience working with eVantage Technology:
M3 Marine is an offshore marine shipping brokerage. In other words, we buy and we sell ships in the off shore space and we do chartering, leasing, and such. The marine consultancy business is focused very much on the oil and gas offshore space.
IT is integral to our business . We live or die by IT. M3 would simply stop if IT was down. From a brokerage perspective, it’s needed simply to continue working. Our brokers need access to databases, they need access to real-time data, they need access to historical data. M3 is very heavy on documentation. In this business you can spend days working on multiple documents.
M3 was one of the early adopters of the Office 365. I got antsy about it in the market because nobody would sell me 365 when it first came out, including our existing IT provider. Basically, I met one of the directors of eVantage Technology who seemed to know a lot about Cloud computing. Soon enough, we entered into an agreement with them and they did an audit of our IT to see if a Cloud based solution is actually suited for what we wanted and the audit said yes. Now, eVantage Technology does all of our IT.
I love it. eVantage Technology helped us put all this together, from conception to execution it was seamless. The process was very smooth for us. I would say our experience with eVantage Technology has been a very positive one. I recommend them.
One of the Directors at eVantage Technology makes a point of spending an hour or two with me every few months just to talk about the IT market, what is innovative, what is going on next, keeping me up to date. It’s proactive management and it’s something I appreciate.
