Customised collaborative working environment to from Constant exchange of emails
CDP is a web based application that provides a collaborative working environment using share point
The normal communication between a ship and the office consists of two-way streams of emails which require careful cataloguing and filing.
CDP takes those emails out of the equation:
Ship files and operative documents are stored on the ship site
Companies files are stored on the office site
The two sites are synchronised once a day – the files modified/added on the office site are replicated on the relevant ship site and vice-versa.
This application stops the typical document control problems. No more misfiled or unfiled documents, failure to forward a document, version control issues with duplicates or unauthorised documents
