Tribon Offers Upgraded V8.0

Thursday, March 04, 2004
From Thursday March 4, the Internet-based service Tribon.com is upgraded with release 8.0. Tribon.com incorporates a Global Database of shipbuilding components and equipment. Shipbuilders can access, download and integrate accurate product information directly into their design. The possibilities for communicating between shipyards and suppliers have been further enhanced by the addition of a new set of functions. Shipyard users can now easily contact the supplier regarding a particular product, requesting a confirmation of the validity of the data at the time when a download takes place. When a shipyard user is missing a supplier on Tribon.com, this can easily be reported and the supplier will be contacted by Tribon Solutions. Finally, when a shipyard user finds product information missing on Tribon.com, new functions are now available so he can request suppliers to upload and publish additional product information in the Global Database of Tribon.com. Among other general improvements there is now a spelling correction suggestion function connected to the free text search. As an example, if a user will type “BOLIER”, the system will detect the misspelling and give a suggestion to search for “BOILER” instead. Only relevant words that exist in the Global Database will be ranked and suggested.
