A new free app has been launched to help find a marine surveyor.
The app – Marine Surveyor Search – is from the International Institute of Marine Surveying (IIMS) and is available for iOS and Android devices.
It has been developed to make the search for a surveyor by specialisation 'fast and simple'.
The content is drawn from the current IIMS practicing surveyor membership amounting to around 700 surveyors in more than 100 countries worldwide.
“IIMS has made a significant investment in app technology to make the process of finding a marine surveyor simple,” said Mike Schwarz, IIMS CEO. “The project has taken a year to scope out and complete.”
Key features of the app include a search function by name, skill set and location, including the nearest port. Additionally, the app will allow users to rate a surveyor.
The app can be downloaded from either the Google Play Store or App Store.
Formed in 1991, the IIMS is a not for profit worldwide professional body for marine surveyors.
