GAT-ship can be used by agencies of all sizes. However, we recommend a volume of minimum 200 port calls per year or more to maximize the benefits of using GAT-ship. We have clients ranging from companies with small volumes to companies with offices worldwide.
Our customers pay for each new port call they create, and the price depends on the volume they purchase. Normally our clients purchase volume for approximately a year. Rebates are given based on purchased volume. Setup, installation, support and updated versions of the software (when available) is included.
GAT-Ship is not web based, but we have a web module which can be accessed on any device connected to the internet. Tablets and laptops recommended.
GAT-Ship uses Microsoft Outlook for email management, but can also be integrated with Mark5.
Years of experience have taught us that personal face-to-face training gives the best result for our users. Therefore, we do not offer online training.
No, GAT-Ship is not shelfware. We customize and tailor the database for each client’s individual needs, followed by a 3-day training course.
GAT-Ship requires Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 or newer as database server (SQL Express is free of charge).
We provide a utility to import and export data in the GAT-Ship database. This tool allows for some standard import/export formats. If these formats are unsuitable for the client’s need, we can create a customized import/export job for a fee.
