The user interface has been mobile-optimised to allow users to access their account on a smartphone, tablet, desktop, laptop or other internet enabled device. Three map options have been added to the original C-Map charts: street, hybrid and satellite maps (provided by Mapbox).

Weather graphics have been enhanced and can be overlaid over the map to provide situational awareness for planning and operations (provided by TideTech), while a quick search feature has been added to allow users to search for a vessel and automatically locate it on the map or fleet list. Zone tools have also been improved, to that make the creation of zones within the program easier.

“We look forward to using the new interface and to the benefits that mobile access will bring,” said Erik Hjortland, manager of Fleet Performance at Odfjell Tankers, which has been using the older version.

“Fleet Management has helped us to improve operational efficiency and achieve cost savings by monitoring the vessel’s positions and speed.”

The new interface has been built using HTML-5 for better mobile accessibility and uses ‘responsive design’, which means that the application is automatically optimised for the user’s screen size and orientation.

“With the release of version 2.0, we have given FM a brand new look and feel,” said Peter Davies, chief technology officer at Pole Star.

“It’s more modern and easier to use than ever before.”
