Making software for a core process like chartering and operations is near to the chicken-and-egg problem: Whatever you add to the software, the next customer has more, different requirements. Different vessel types, cargoes, tramp, semi-liner, parcelling – shipping is a complex system with a lot of niches. To support data-driven decisions, data integration via APIs becomes more and more important.
All in all, customization of Voyage Management Solutions is a key for future competiveness. But how to get a system that matches 100% the company’s requirements?

How does this work?
We are an agile software development company. Our development cycles are organized in 2-week-periods (sprints) each sprint is like a short development project. At the end of each project, the development result is rolled-out to the operational system. So, every 2 weeks, you get an increment of the developed features and functions. After each sprint, you can change priorities and decide what to do next.
Your time investment?
We have a clear process how to integrate our customers into our development. This limits your time investment to some 1-2 hours per week during the development phase.
You can use the entire CharterWorks tool from day one. And you get step-by-step nearer to a digital solution that really brings your team forward. Sounds good, right?
