For ship owners, charterers and ship managers it is important being able to communicate in a seamless way when it comes to exchanging information about vessels. This information exchange can include ship particulars and other important data such as plans and certificates required during an evaluation of a ship prior to a potential charter party. It can also include performance information during deployment or a retrospective once the charter party has ended.
That is what Ankeri is all about.
The most basic entity of Ankeri are the profiles. Each ship has a profile which holds master data information about that ship which can easily be shared between stakeholders. That way, it can also be used by ship owners to populate charterer questionnaires and for charterers to send out those questionnaires. In addition to that, a ship profile can hold files including plans, certificates, etc.
