Armada Data Offers Module-Based Shipping Software
Armada Data offers a series of integrated software packages developed over the course of 20 years' shipping experience on the part of its parent company, the Armada Group.
The Armada Shipping System presently consists of software modules for control of key areas of the shipping business, from communications and accounting to vessel, voyage and cargo control. The modules can be implemented individually or as an integrated system to provide overall control of shipping operations. Available modules include: —The Voyage Estimate module allows the user to carry out sensitivity analyses on the basis of freight rates, bunker prices and loading quantities. It also facilitates world scale tariff calculations for tanker businesses. —Voyage Operation is designed to control the specific voyages and to register all relevant details of the shipping contract.
—Liner Operations is used by shipowners and agents. By means of this module, the loading port agent reports cargo bookings and Bill of Lading details via the shipowner to the discharge port agent.
Container Tracking keeps track of both owned and leased containers, containing various search functions. The Claims module is used for administration of claims and for generating reports on claims handling at various stages.
—The Accounting module is a multidimensional system which offers accountancy specifically for the shipping industry. As many as three currencies per transaction are supported.
