Automatic preset of Cargo Order input screen

The counterpart of our "Automatic Position Updater" (APU) has now been released. After simply highlighting cargo order details in an e-mail,
System 5 parses the text and presets all relevant fields for entering new records in the Cargo Order module.

Unlike the APU, which can run automatically in the background updating vessel positions, the Cargo Updater purposely does it not. A fully automatic mode of the Cargo Updater could very likely create hundreds of new cargoes every day without relevance for your business.

Get instant information of who circulates a particular vessel.

System 5's Automatic Position Updater (APU) does not only update vessel positions by reading e-mails, it also links all these messages with each found ship. Even if you receive the same information from multiple sources, all these sources and e-mails are linked. This APU enhancement enables you to easily identify "how" and "by whom" a vessel is marketed.

Update "Mail Security"

System 5 helps you to avoid falling victim to e-mail spoofing.
We are pleased to announce that the latest version of System 5 (as of 11th December 2017) handles known new threats. Suspicious e-mails are stopped via the White/Blacklist mechanism and are clearly labeled with a "faked sender" warning.

Criminals are "inventive" and keep finding shortcomings in various e-mail clients (including well known major ones) leading those to show wrong sender addresses. By using special formatting in the sender's e-mail address, they bypass security mechanisms of most mail servers. Once the e-mail is delivered, the mail client shows a different, faked sender compared to the one the e-mail server accepted. The sender pretends to be someone else and you are at risk.

E.g. please see www.mailsploit.com for more info.

"General Data Protection Regulation" vs. "Vessel Position Updater"

The new European privacy law, also called "General Data Protection Regulation" (GDPR), shall apply from 25 May 2018. The GDPR imposes new rules on companies and all kinds of organizations that offer goods and services in the European Union, or that collect and analyze data tied to EU residents. Among other things, companies are required to document all sorts of data processing and evaluate same. If a third party processes data for a company, this external party needs to comply with the GDPR as well.

What has this got do with a "Vessel Position Updater”? If a shipbroker forwards all emails to an external provider for parsing and extraction of vessel positions or cargo orders, this could be considered as general data processing. In this case, do you know how long such e-mails are stored on the provider’s side, who has access? Can you be sure only e-mails with ship positions and cargo orders are forwarded, and no e-mails with personal information of your customers or employees are among those messages?

All these questions can be answered with a "YES" when using the Automatic Position Updater (APU) provided by System 5. The APU is installed on each customer's server and no message needs to be forwarded to any external system.

More information about the GDPR can be found here.
