Solve multiple system problems with UBR

Are you using two or more different purchasing systems, or same purchasing system but with more than one installation for your fleet?

This situation can arise either as a result of acquisition of new ships or due to transitioning from an old to a new purchasing system. ShipServ can help present a single interface to your suppliers with our User-Based Redirect (UBR) module.

To implement UBR, multiple different installations of ShipServ MTMLink-FX communication software are set up on your network, each handling a different system but running under one TradeNet ID with different MTMLlink FX users.

However, when the transaction reaches TradeNet, the supplier will only see a single TradeNet ID. Furthermore, supplier responses will automatically be routed to the user who has initiated the transaction.

This helps keep your changes transparent to both suppliers and users and helps simplify their handling of your account.

The diagram below illustrates a two system implementation for a shipping company.
