Trimline – During Cruise Ship Interiors Design Expo Europe (CSIE), held at ExCeL London on 1 – 2 December 2021, the Trimline team was thrilled to be recognised for their newly developed Trimline App (TAPP) system. They were awarded The CSI Technology Award at CSI Awards, held during day two of the exhibition. Voted for by the cruise industry and judged by leaders in the cruise industry, the award ‘recognises the company who has introduced technology to improve the way they work and therefore improve their product offering to clients’. 

An award-winning innovation

TAPP (Trimline App) runs the entire business, from initial enquiry through to project delivery. This includes material purchasing and resource booking, drawing management, onsite time recording and health and safety. It provides a way for Trimline, and its customers, suppliers and contractors, to work collaboratively towards the end-goal of a superbly executed project, on time and on budget.

Having been a respected interior outfitter for over 5 decades, Trimline has experienced every eventuality during their refits and they’ve never stopped learning. They’ve listened to their customer’s needs and over the last year, they developed the bespoke business management system (TAPP) that gives their customers everything they want in one place, making their life so much easier.

The award-winning TAPP is proving invaluable to Trimline’s customers who are seeing many benefits, including:

  • Adaptable to meet customer’s differing needs
  • Complete project transparency from planning to completion
  • Easy access to all refit documentation e.g. FF&E in the future
  • Accessible from anywhere

Matt Easton, Hotel Refurbishment Manager, Marella Cruises, said: “We’re thrilled that Trimline has received this award. The ability to view live transparent data at any time, and in any location, makes things more efficient, accessible, and easy. Throughout its development, Trimline has listened to feedback and as a result built in extra features to improve it, which has been fantastic.

We’ve recently just used TAPP on our latest dry dock refit and everything was in one place. Having access to this historic data for future reference is very exciting.”

Nick Farrell, Technology Expert and Trimline Co-Owner, said “The Trimline team is so proud to receive the CSI Technology Award. I’ve spent the last year embedded at Trimline, getting to know the business processes and that of the industry at large and what rapidly became apparent is that whilst there is plenty of off-the-shelf ERP software available, nothing fully integrated the needs of marine interior outfitting perfectly.

Even with custom development and tailoring, there was nothing that gave us the full range of benefits that we wanted for our team and our customers. That left us with only one option, to build our own perfectly bespoke solution.

Once the first phase was complete, we worked closely with a number of customers to tailor the system to meet all their refit needs – and we are now proud to have a system that is making life so much easier for everyone involved in our projects.”
