CFM Updates - May 2023

We are continuously upgrading Cloud Fleet Manager, adding new functionality, enhancements and improving the overall usability. 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.

  • Introduced a dedicated subtab for Power-BI Reports, empowering users with advanced data visualization capabilities within the module.

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.

  • The extended seafarer search now allows users to conveniently search for all active and inactive seafarers.

  • A text filter for the external type mapping has been implemented, providing users with the ability to enter filter criteria such as flag state, type, internal type name, or external type name. This allows for effortless filtering of the list based on specific requirements.

  • The crew changes endpoint has been extended to include additional attributes for enhanced functionality. The attribute for PortID is now included, allowing for more comprehensive crew change information. Furthermore, the crew changes endpoint for both on- and off-signers has been expanded to incorporate the attribute for CrewChangeID, providing a unique identifier for each crew change event.

CFM Maintenance allows you to plan your maintenance work centrally, precisely and according to your requirements. It gives you full visibility of your fleet status and lets you regain control over the maintenance jobs of your fleet.

  • New intervals for executing jobs have been introduced, allowing for flexibility based on fixed dates, component conditions, or recurring days of the week. This option is available both for users in the office as well as at sea.

  • Introduced a new dashboard card called 'Shortage Warning Spare Components'. The card displays spare components whose quantity has reached the defined threshold, taking into account the configured warning settings.

CFM Purchase provides you with all sections of the purchasing process at one point in an intelligently structured manner, gives you full control over your budgets and allows your suppliers to work directly with this information. Thanks to an intuitive dashboard that features the most relevant information and upcoming tasks, CFM Purchase always focuses on what is important and streamlines the complete purchasing workflow.

  • The modal to edit a supplier contract was streamlined and improved. This enhancement allows for more efficient management of contracts. Specifically, users can now for example edit port prices of items in bulk, providing a convenient and time-saving solution.

Cloud Ship Manager (CSM) integrates your fleet directly into all processes, is intuitively usable and enables your crew, to capture data at sea and to forward it to the office. Through this, your crew on board and your personnel on shore fuse to jointly acting teams.

  • The Dataloy API was extended and now provides bunker-related information.
