CFM Updates - February 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.

  • The ‘Operations’ subtab of time charter contracts now provides you with a dedicated timeline section. This contains a detailed overview of the vessel’s schedule, including events within the time period of the respective contract.

  • Time charter invoices now allow users to filter for off-hire & claim-relevant entries. This way, you can find the information you are looking for even faster and more convenient.

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.

  • To enhance clarity while planning, we added a new report "Overlapping Person Histories Report". This allows users to identify for which of all seafarers overlapping periods exist that need rectification.

  • Seafarer's payroll payslips now can be exported as PDF file. The same option is also available in CFM Crew Portal.

  • A new dedicated 'Flight Details' subtab is now available. It provides a quick overview of all flights with issues for off- and on-signing seafarers. This means that you no longer have to open each seafarer's flight individually, saving you time and effort.

  • Payroll (custom) settings can now be specified per seafarer’s contract type, either voyage or permanent contract.

  • API endpoints have been extended: New API endpoints for fetching certificate types and certificates and to create, update or delete certificates of a specific seafarer are now available.

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.

There have been several enhancements to the newly added Equipment Component Transfer feature:

  • To improve visibility and component tracking a new column was added to show component's current location, additionally, there now is a top bar tab filter to show component status (Agent, Garbage, Sell, Warehouse, Workshop).

  • A dedicated subtab for active and historical ‘Component Transfers’ was added to the ‘Equipment’ tab.

  • Several smaller improvements such as the option to filter agents by ports or schedules, new workflows and changes to the selectable units have been implemented.

CFM MARPOL ERB allows you to record and keep track of all information with regards to the Oil Record Book (I + II), Cargo Record Book, Garbage Record Book, and Ozone depleting substances. By visualising the pending submissions and their respective status, the dashboard always provides the most relevant data at a glance.

  • You can now grant user permissions for various actions in the on-board software to individual users.

  • To enhance overview, a dashboard was added to CSM MARPOL ERB containing the cards 'Records Awaiting Master's Approval', 'Records Awaiting Re-Approval', 'Draft Records', and 'Pending Records'.

  • An audit log is now available for each record type. This keeps track of the date and time, user's name that conducted the activity, the added or edited content, as well as the record's status during the activity. Additionally, dedicated statuses for each record type were introduced to reflect the workflow more precise. The statuses include Draft, Finalized, Pending Verification, Draft with Correction, and Approved.

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 Purchase Invoice-APIs have been extended by the new attribute ‘Invoice Remark’.

  • A warning dialog was implemented to warn users when a catalog is deleted. Thus, ensuring that the action is intended, and catalogs are not deleted by accident.

  • An item's historical prices now display vessels that most recently purchased it.
