Business Roles

Business roles are performed by people who are fluent in maritime shipping but may be less familiar with software. Business roles are critical to ensure a continuous fit between your solution and company business practices. Business roles often assist administrative roles, especially in areas where a deep understanding of the maritime business is necessary:


Superusers are the most highly trained users and are typically involved in implementation from its very early stages. A Superuser should be familiar with decisions made during implementation and the reasons those decisions were made. They should also be competent in a designated business role (for example, Chartering or Operations).

This role is specifically utilized during the implementation project.
