SISCommerce is one of the most complete e-commerce solutions for the maritime industry, allowing for efficient communication between buyers, vendors and freight forwarders. Continuously feeding the purchasing systems with up-to-date statuses and information, SISCommerce contributes to a truly efficient purchasing process.
SISCommerce facilitates communication with suppliers through the SISCommerce web solution or through the vendor’s preferred e-commerce portal.
SISCommerce allows for configuration of inquiries and orders to match the buyer’s profile and requirements. Company logo, contact details and terms and conditions can be added to all SISCommerce documents, and can also be configured for multiple company divisions.
SISCommerce integrates with the Star Fleet Supply Management (Star FSM), and requires no additional user interface for the buyer. Vendors are offered an easy-to-use web portal, free of charge.
SISCommerce allows for inquiries and orders to be sent electronically if this is selected in Star FSM. On return, quotations and order confirmations are uploaded to the system, saving the purchaser valuable time that is normally spent on retyping data from email or fax.
Inquiry and order statuses are automatically updated to provide the purchaser with full control of the ordering progress. Vendors who have unopened inquiries or orders are automatically reminded by SISCommerce.
Freight orders can be sent electronically from the purchasing system. The forwarder receives the order either by e-mail or directly into their own order handling system.
For buyers to use SISCommerce, Star Fleet Supply Management (Star FSM) is required. SISCommerce allows for integration with vendors’ and forwarders’ order handling systems through third-party eCommerce portals such as Evry and ShipServ.
