In line with its commitment to respond to the needs of its customers in the maritime industry, Marcura recently launched MarDocs, a collaborative cloud-based tool for charterers and brokers to manage fixtures. In order to improve the efficiency, security and control of the fixture contracts in the new system, Marcura partnered with Xait, the software development company behind XaitPorter, an Application-Platform-as-a-Service (aPaaS).
MarDocs completely changes the way a broker and charterer engage in agreeing or amending fixtures, removing the need for ‘as per last’. Further, MarDocs is designed to remove time-consuming and repetitive tasks whilst delivering a solution that reduces risk and cost.
According to Adrian Challinor, the MarDocs Product Director: “With MarDocs, we have created a solution that solves the industry’s need for automating the creation of charter party documentation. We believe that by using XaitPorter as part of our solution, we have substantially sped up our time-to-market, allowing us to quickly launch a solution that the industry has needed for a long period of time.”
According to Kris Sæther, Chief Commercial Officer of Xait: “We are very pleased to work with a professional organisation such as Marcura, and that they have chosen Xait and XaitPorter. This is also an important step for Xait, as Marcura is our first client with a commercialized solution using XaitPorter as an aPaaS.”

Working with contracts or are you managing a procurement document process with many stakeholders? Need to focus on the strategically important contracts, but get bombarded with requests left, right and centre for various contracts? Then you should really look into your process and see whether you can find a solution that can both assist you with your strategic contracts, while automating your standard contracts.
Many organizations today have invested heavily in an enterprise content management (ECM) solution that resides on-premise. For many organizations this works well, however there are many pitfalls and a pure on-premise solution reduces the ability to collaborate and co-author documents with partners and consultants.
Xait has with XaitPorter provided more than 50,000 users a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution for many years. We are pleased that XaitPorter is very successful in the market and solves the challenges our clients have with many document centric processes. Which is anything from producing an annual report to governing documents to proposals and more – basically producing almost any type of document. In our journey we have been recognized by the world’s leading information technology research and advisory company Gartner as a cool vendor for our focus on team productivity and manageability rather than individual creativity, which is where most document authoring tools concentrate their efforts.
