Compared with v6, the new version offers a number of additional features in each of the core modules - Chartering, Trading, Operations and Financials - that can be added to existing installations through the use of Veson's platform installer.
The new Trading and Chartering Module features include Benchmark Pricing to enable dynamic selection of minimum or maximum exposure based on daily market conditions, and Cargo Matching to assist in identifying the best vessels for a cargo and the best cargos for a vessel.
In the Operations and Financials Module, new features include P&L Variance Reporting, which provides daily variance reports that highlight voyage P&L deviations based on user specified tolerances, and Voyage Accrual Options that provide new accrual calculation models.
Also added to this module are North America ECA Zones, adding support for low sulphur zones to assist voyage planning and operation, and LNG Bunker Curves and Consumption Tracking for modelling and tracking of LNG fuel consumption
IMOS7 is already in use in over forty major installations, the company says.
“Until now, we’ve looked at how to automate current maritime business practices. IMOS7 begins to answer the question ‘How will we need to work tomorrow?’” said John Veson, president of Veson Nautical.
“We believe that the answer involves an active and supportive user community within each customer’s organisation, where people constantly share real-time information. IMOS7 is designed for exactly this type of collaboration.”
