SeaProcurement Version 2 Now Available

iMarine Software announced today the release of SeaProcurement (SeaProc) Version 2, the next generation of eProcurement systems specifically targeting the marine industry.

“Typical corporate software systems can be expensive to license and support,” said Issa Odeh, CEO iMarine Software. “This is also true of eProcurement systems, even if they are cloud-based. Moving software delivery to the cloud in a Software-as-a-Service (SAAS) model should deliver an equal or better end-user experience along with an overall cost savings for both buyer and seller. We are not seeing this in the current market and feel that this is preventing many companies from moving to an automated eProcurement system. Current systems are either too complicated, too expensive, or both. We developed SeaProc to provide the same robust features and benefits at a price point that any fleet owner, operator, and their suppliers can afford. We believe the benefits of an eProcurement system should be available to any company that wants it regardless of size.”

Odeh added, “We do this with SeaProc with all software running in a secure, cloud server environment that the user accesses using an internet browser. There is nothing to install and support. Additionally, our pricing model provides the fleet buyer access at no charge while the suppliers are charged a small, reasonable monthly access fee. There are no other transaction fees or charges of any kind. There are no contracts or annual support policies and creating a user account is quick and easy on our website. We expect this pricing model to provide substantial savings for both parties.”

“As we are also a full service provider,” Odeh continued, “we make available an integration application service to the fleet owner’s current fleet management system (FMS) for a smooth, transparent movement of data between the two products. This helps increase data accuracy and eliminates double data entry, saving time on each purchase.”

Features in SeaProc include:

  • RFQ and PO tracking
  • Public RFQ distribution and tracking
  • Communications and documentation management
  • Buyer side vendor terms management
  • Seller side invoice generation and tracking
  • Freight forwarder/agent communications
  • A mini-procurement system for those who do not have an in-house purchasing system
