Montréal, Québec, Canada, 2010/08/10 - In an initiative conceived jointly with Canadian ship owner Canfornav, Stelvio Inc. has added a convenient new set of features to the Chartering Module of its ShipDecision maritime software suite.
The Module gives Charterers one consolidated view of all information related to a Contract of Affreightment including: all documents and emails pertaining to the COA; cargo type and volume; allotment across a specific number of voyages; and a complete trail of all actions taken to move the cargo. Ultimately, the consolidated view makes it easier to track and manage the individual voyages taken to fulfill each Contract of Affreightment
“We are on our way to becoming a paperless operation,” explained Knud Jensen, Executive Vice President of Canfornav Inc. “With the introduction of new COA, voyage tracking and fixture tracking features in ShipDecision, we can keep a closer tab on the movement of our cargos and vessels which supports our chartering department as well as operations.”
“This initiative is consistent with our approach of continuously evolving our products to support business-specific needs,” commented Albert Carbone, President of Stelvio Inc. “By collaborating with our clients, we create solutions that are applicable to the Maritime industry as a whole.”
ShipDecision is a Maritime Software as a Service (SaaS) solution that helps organize the sharing and use of information among business partners in the Maritime sector. Accessible from anywhere an internet connection is available, and protected through banking-level encryption, ShipDecision intelligently processes data, documents and communications related to each voyage. Every piece of information received is safely secured in an electronic vault which can be accessed by authorized users who need to work with the information. This also provides a tamper-proof audit trail of all business activities.The web-based architecture removes the need for in-house servers and complex IT infrastructure.
With specific modules for Brokers, Operators, Charterers, Surveyors, Agents, Insurers and Registries, ShipDecision saves time, reduces costs, and helps create a competitive advantage. It can be customized to suit an organization’s business needs and to mirror an organization’s business processes. Teams using the system gain better control of the information needed to make decisions.
