ABS Nautical Systems has established a direct-link e-procurement facility as an extension of the Purchasing & Inventory module of its integrated ABS-NS
SafeNet fleet management system.
The new e-procurement capability arose from client feedback at one of the regular Nautical Systems' user confer- ences and has been developed in part- nership with existing SafeNet users to ensure its practicality. One component of the SafeNet e-procurement facility is that all users of the system provide the names and contacts of their vendors.
Nautical Systems provides each of these vendors with the required communica- tion applet at no charge.
