SEDNA and Voyager integrate software systems

SEDNA has announced a partnership with bulk shipping management platform Voyager to integrate their respective systems to make allow data to be more easily shared between applications.

Voyager will now be available as a tech integration in the SEDNA email platform and vice versa, allowing shipping information, like vessel tracking and invoicing data, to be exchanged seamlessly between the two platforms.

Mutual customers will be able to view, organise, and communicate information relating to voyage documents all from within one single digital workspace, which the companies say should save time and reduce the potential for human error when switching between apps.

SEDNA or Voyager users who request the integration as part of their subscription will be able to identify automatically tagged Voyager documents from within the SEDNA platform and route them to the right teams and team members. Documents can also be uploaded and synced to Voyager from within SEDNA to create a clear audit trail.

“All too often maritime customers highlight the pain points of their day-to-day work being tied to the inefficiencies of traditional email platforms: inbox overload, an inability to find critical information, and using multiple software and apps to get the job done,” said Bill Dobie, Founder and CEO of SEDNA.

“Today’s integration with Voyager aims to tackle these unnecessary everyday problems through providing an additional means for our customers to work from a singular workspace. Ultimately this will help improve efficiencies in day-to-day operations and make voyage management smooth sailing.”

The new partnership was announced shortly after the launch of a range of new updates to SEDNA’s digital platform, adding ten features that use the company’s own artificial intelligence (AI) technology to automate manual tasks.

The new product release is named after the star constellation Alhena, and includes automation support for activities such as invoice processing, managing quotes, deleting personal data, and keeping track of service-level agreements (SLAs) and estimated times of arrival (ETAs).

The new tools can be requested as add-ons to users’ email subscriptions through a newly launched SEDNA apps marketplace page, named ‘Connected Apps’, which also offers third-party app integrations.

Other updates launched as part of the Alhena product release include a new calendar feature for better time oversight and meeting scheduling, as well as wider admin controls for routing of important emails across teams.
