Benefits in the new solution
With the new solution, the DMA maintains all standard phrases, guidelines, legislation, themes, check lists and certificates per ship type and survey type. Thus the DMA has a maintainable solution secured for the future. The new solution also is a good planning tool for the administration in the DMA, as they can book surveys for the surveyors based on criteria such as different skills and geography.
The survey application does support new ship surveyors because all the planned tasks are listed with booking information, ship data, guidelines, certificates, reports, themes, standard phrases presented for the actual ship, and much more. Preparation of each survey is faster and easier for new surveyors, as all information is directly targeted at the specific task.
The administrators at the office not only have a better overview of the surveyors’ location, status, progress, etc. to serve the customers in the field, they can also issue administrative certificates from the office.
The solution consists of 5 modules all connected with the Microsoft Dynamics platform, which is a the center of the solution made for DMA.
The solution has made survey and issuing of certificates more efficient and therefore cheaper – saving many hours every year.
