60,000 reasons to celebrate CrewToo anniversary

Headland Media, purchased in May 2013 by KVH, reports that its Crewtoo social media site for seafarers has now passed 60,000 members in the 12 months since its introduction in August 2012.

Membership growth has been steady, with the company having announced that it had passed 40,000 members in April of this year.

“For many of the world’s 1.2 million seafarers, the initial romantic vision of a life at sea was too soon replaced by the reality of hard work in harsh conditions and increasing isolation,” commented Mark Woodhead, managing director of Headland Media.

“Crewtoo’s unique objective is to combat that sense of loneliness and lack of contact that most people at sea experience, by providing a space where seafarers feel they belong and can converse. It is also a space where they can learn and it is becoming a platform for seafarers to help and inspire each other.”

“Our company has focused on offering services to improve the lives of seafarers for the past 60 years. With Crewtoo, we wanted to create a direct relationship with seafarers so we could understand their situation first-hand and ultimately provide services that are better designed to suit their needs. It is gratifying to see large numbers of people joining our site, and exciting to see how their input and our new relationship with KVH are already leading to plans for a new generation of exciting services.”
