iQS Shipping

iQS Shipping is a version of iQS that is tailored specifically to the shipping industry. iQS Shipping has several customized features in addition to the standard functionalities in iQS Business.

Here in iQubeS we have gained a very solid experience within the shipping industry, and we recognize the needs within the industry for an effective management of fleet and offices. 

Examples of areas where we have done extensive work within shipping are:

Integration of databases
To achieve an effective operation, data needs to be structured and available. The right person needs to be able to access the correct data at the right time. In order to achieve this, we help our customers structure existing data and connect, as well as integrate, existing databases. This leads to data being stored once, in one place, and will be found where it's needed, when it's needed.

KPI (Key point indicators)
Combining, presenting and visualizing business data from information stored in iQS and other existing databases.

We offer replication of data to and from the ships*, with full control over which data is transferred when the ships are, or have been, without satellite coverage.

*Requires third-party software

Document control
iQubeS offer full version and revision control over both controlling and uncontrolled (result / work) documents.

Fleet control
Technical data, area of responsibility, documentation, tasks, meetings, and much more.

Fleet overview
Through our cooperation with the ECC (Electronic Chart Centre) we have developed a unique visualization of the fleet, with the individual ships position. The method has been developed so that it is possible to add many self-defined layers of map information, and the ships can be tracked by, amongst others, AIS and GMDSS.

Crew budgeting

Quick overview over crew on board, both planned and current.
