SISCommerce is one of the most complete ecommerce solutions for the maritime industry, allowing for efficient communication between buyers, vendors, and freight forwarders. Constantly 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 eCommerce 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) system, 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 by the click of a button in the purchasing system. On return, quotations and order confirmations are uploaded into 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, whereon the forwarder receives the order either by e-mail or directly into their own order handling system.
For buyers to use SISCommerce, the Star Fleet Supply Management (Star FSM) procurement system is required.
SISCommerce allows for integration with vendors’ and forwarders’ order handling systems through 3rd party eCommerce portals such as Evry and ShipServ.
