i-Seaports

i-Seaports™ Management ERP provides seaports, port authorities and marinas with a fully customizable seaport management system. It provides users with personalized dashboards for all of the critical operations tasks - pilotage, towage, berthage, stevedoring, repair, line on/off and others. This flows through seamlessly to the financial processes for all billing, collections, accounting, fiscal analysis, statistical analysis and reporting, streamlining revenue generation and collection for seaport profitability.

i-Seaports™ Leverages the Cloud for 24/7

i-Seaports offers a level of resiliency in its ability to empower seaport owners, managers, and the seaport user community to work on location from PCs and laptops, at dockside with tablets (fully touchscreen enabled) or work remotely from anywhere, anytime to manage their seaports operations and services.

Country or Regional Multi-port Capabilities

i-Seaports has also accounted for the fact that in many countries, ports are centrally managed and controlled by their governments, or private enterprise that have global holdings of ports they are managing in many countries.

To accommodate this possibility, i-Seaports leverages NetSuite's OneWorld solution that lets ports independently manage their operations while central control for finance and/or security monitoring can be given to the enterprise or government that owns them.
