Veson Nautical, the U.S.-based developer of software solutions for the commercial maritime community, announced that it has teamed with DA-Desk, an independent provider of port cost management services to provide shipping operators with a fully integrated chartering, operations, financials and port disbursement system. The enhanced integration of the two solutions significantly minimizes error and improves workflow. Meeting the request of DA-Desk’s customers that use Veson’s IMOS, port disbursement data captured by DA-Desk can flow seamlessly into IMOS, omitting the need for duplicate data entry for ship operators. Back-end financial processes gain efficiencies as well, as the integrated solution manages invoicing, accounts receivables and port disbursements from one platform.
The joint solution benefits many of the industry sectors where port cost and activity details can be complicated and tedious to manage, including tanker operators, specific vessel types and trades such as VLCC operations, product and chemical / gas tanker operations and short sea trades. Dry bulk, multipurpose general cargo and project cargo, reefer, liner, and container operations are also able to take advantage of the combined offering.
