Strategic Dataworks' shipping applications have been in continuously re developed since the
early 1980's, utilising many decades of experience of the maritime industry and extensive
feedback from a worldwide Client base as well as industry experts.
Many of the programs are built around a extensive database of ships' particulars, the Strategic
Dataworks shipping programs are powerful tools, some of the major programs are as listed
Sale and Purchase
This tried and tested application allows the ability to search through over
40,000 vessels in the current world fleet by the ship's technical specification
in seconds. Users can also search all the commercial and sales history from
launch to demolition, furthermore, Market information, Prices, Ownership,
Commitments, Class, plus many other useful features.
Also provided is the ability to store and search Purchase Enquiries and match
them against vessel details.
The most popular of our maritime database applications: Users may search
through over 10,000 Tankers OR the 20,000 vessels in the world Dry cargo
fleet by multiple technical specifications. The main feature is the ability to
search for next open position, both actual and what could be possible utilizing
a Logical Ballast Run. Users can also search the commercial records of the
fleet as all open positions, trading history and fixtures from launch to
demolition are held.
As standard we have a Dry Cargo version and a Tanker version of the
Position List programs, For those involved in specialist sectors, there is a Gas
Tanker version, a Chemical ship version, a Containership version and an
Offshore version of the program.
For those than require a subsection of the world fleet we can provide the
ships only within the size and type required from Short Sea to Cape size, or
from Bunker barges to ULCC's
An electronic "Fixtures Book", for both in-house Fixtures and market Fixtures.
Various levels of privacy can be held and the program links to the Position
List, the ship database and to Accounting systems.
The program can be used to easily find 'last done', or the fixture history of a
particular ship or type and size of ship or a commodity or a route. In addition
it can also produce statistics, for example to show how rates have fluctuated
on a given cargo and route over a period.
Tonnage List Processor
This labor saving program allows a user to take a Monday morning Position
list message with dozens of ships and open positions listed, in two clicks feed
the message to the program and then update the positions in the Position
List program one by one. Utilising this program means that if required a
single person can update many hundreds of positions per hour, thereby
meaning the Position List program will have the last known open date.
Charter Party Editor
In 1990 Strategic Dataworks pioneered the Charter Party Editor, now used by
many hundreds of maritime companies worldwide. The program provides a
quick and efficient way of generating and completing Charter Party forms
issued by various associations and companies.
The program offers swift execution of Charter Parties and the ability to copy
similar Charter or Sale forms to reduce time in drafting, executing and
dispatching. The original form is protected, and may not be altered in any
way without the amendments being clearly visible. All forms are electronically
filed for future reference. There are over 150 forms available including all the
most popular ones.
The Agency Administration Module facilitates port agents to administrate
cruise vessels, tankers and other types of vessels calling at a port or doing an
STS-operation. The module covers the process from sending of a proforma
disbursement account to prospective customers through to finally creating
invoices with attached schedules. When invoices from suppliers are entered
into the system as well, accurate revenue figures can be produced. Day to
day tasks for agents are eased by several data entry nodes where for
example transportation requirements for crew members are entered in order
to create fax/e-mail requisitions, all to become part of the final invoices.
There is also an option to implement integration with a client's accounts
