Easy to use
The Budget application is a cost control system designed to fully cover the process ranging from budget estimation to continuous supervision of expenses occurring. It enables a two-way flow of data between fleet managers and the vessels.
The close link with all transactions taking place in Spares onboard and Purchase in the main office provides both vessel and purchaser with a continuous follow up and cost control of actual expenses versus budget.
The modular approach ensures that system solutions can be tailored to the requirements of each particular vessel type. A user friendly interface make it quick and easy to use for the operator.
