A good Port Agents Module keeps track of a Port Agent’s day-to-day operations, makes the Port Agent’s office more efficient and provides all the key information at the agent’s fingertips.
A GREAT Port Agents Module can create a PDA (Pro-Forma DA) and FDA (Final DA) based on the information that the agent has inputted into his job card. In other words, it has a fully integrated DA Calculator that takes the tariff rules of the port’s country as well as the Port Agent’s tariffs into account.
We’ve said it many times before: at bluVerve we strive for efficiency! It wouldn’t do our Port Agent clients any good if we were to expect them to type out their PDAs and FDAs every time they required one. This is where our DA Calculator comes in. Oh, and it comes in multiple currencies.
By adding the Tariff Rules to our system for our clients’ ports of operation, along with their own DA Tariffs, we are able to pre-populate the PDAs and FDAs based on the following criteria:
- Purpose of Call
- Vessel Particulars
- Hours in Port
- Number of Crew Changes
This list can go on and on… Bottom line is that we customise the Rules to meet our clients’ needs.
Of course this is not to say that the PDA/FDA that is created if “fixed”. Users can override the calculated amounts at any time, as well as add items on an adhoc basis.
A picture (or in this case, a Demo) is worth a thousand words, so if you would like to find out more about our DA Calculator feel free to request a demo by sending us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us from here.
