With this article, we would like to give you a brief overview of some of the greater edits to the system. For a comprehensive overview of all changes, you can visit the “What’s New” report in Cloud Fleet Manager at any time to see what exactly happened in each of our modules.

New features and enhancements

CFM Charter allows you to draw up contracts in a few steps and automatically create invoices. Easily conduct laytime calculations, forecast earnings from charter agreements and execute post calculations.

  • Explanatory icons will now be displayed on the Time Charters ‘Charter Periods’ card to indicate the status of the corresponding invoices. This allows you to immediately determine the status of an. This directly gives the user a feeling of the invoices status without navigating through the Invoices section.

CFM Crewing is your one-stop solution to handle all crew-related tasks centrally and in an intuitive way. From master data management of seafarers, planning the crews on board as well as their relief, the management of working and rest hours of the crew up to managing payrolls, everything can be done in one single solution.

  • A new feature was added, allowing you to automatically generate assignments after a specified number of days once a seafarer has signed off. This only applies to seafarers on board the same vessel and occupying the same rank. This reduces the manual effort for the user tremendously. In addition, this is especially helpful for customers in the Yacht sector whose seafarers are usually employed for the entire year. Please contact our helpdesk if you are interested to enable this setting.

  • The Seagull Integration was improved implementing a better handling of creation, updating and deletion of seafarer or assignment data.

  • We extended our 'SeamanSearch' API by the new filter option 'Visa' allowing third party integrators to retrieve visa information for specific seafarers.
