Not just sales!

“In-house” integration of our departments and customer service offered by developers.

BENEFIT has been known for offering one of the best integration levels available in the market. The same rule applies not only to modules but to the Company’s structure: starting from the top. The Benefit management team has a varied a managerial experience in the shipping industry and knows the importance of internal integration well.

All company’s departments are operating under a “holistic” and “realistic” approach at every stage of a project (analysis, development, training, implementation) whereas the commercial department is comprised of developers, not just sales personnel, with a deep knowledge and understanding of shipping industry requirements.

Document Control by Benefit Software becomes the world’s first document-workflow module to attain the Lloyd’s Type Approval.

BENEFIT SOFTWARE is proud to announce another milestone in the history of the Company: Lloyd's Register, the most respected and leading certifier in the shipping industry has just granted Software Conformity Certification for “Document Control” , “Plan Maintenance System” and “Rest Hours” modules, positioning all of them at high levels in terms of security, functionality, support, reliability and conformity to international standards and protocols.

For Benefit Software, this is also another exciting world's first: “Document Control” becomes the first document-workflow module in the shipping industry worldwide to attain the Lloyd’s Type Approval, positioning the Company once more as a center of excellence and a pioneer in developing user-friendly, office and vessel applications for the shipping industry.

We are glad our clients and partners will be benefited from such a distinction, both from a financial as well as a time-management perspective, since the need for in-house certification of certain functions is waived, while inspection risks are minimized.

Benefit Software will continue meeting marketplace requirements and exceeding user’s expectations, maintaining the Company’s position as the leading developer and provider of world-class software products and services, exclusively designed for the shipping industry.
