A majority of services will be easy to source and can be managed with a standard ERP like SAP.
Other services, like agency services or shipyard technical stops services will be more difficult to match with prediction in spite of standard prices agreed in advance.
A dedicated tool has been set up at SHOREREP to handle these demands mainly but also offering other advantages:
- No double invoicing for same service under a different invoice number
- Close matching between the actual service offered ( quality and volume) and the agreed price for it.
- Control loop response of discrepancies is sytematically used to properly negotiate the rates back to the supplier.
