Norwegian dry bulk shipping company Western Bulk has selected SEDNA as its team-based transaction management platform to manage the company's email and internal collaboration.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}SEDNA will be used by everyone in Western Bulk, including the CEO, to increase efficiency by accelerating performance and mobility throughout the organisation.

Martin Hjelle, head of technology, Western Bulk, said the company looked at a number of solutions but the final decision came down to a long-term vision.

He commented: “SEDNA is the type of partner Western Bulk needed for the future as we both are working to make teams more efficient. Their openness to integrate with other systems like Shipamax and Veson was very important as it showed SEDNA’s desire to bring innovation from both inside and outside the company to help Western Bulk simplify our workflow.”

As Noel Pullen, COO, SEDNA, added: “We are working to solve a 30-year problem that is too critical to ignore. Email is the lifeblood of any business and the systems responsible for helping people communicate are severely impacting the health of enterprise organisations. As companies look to other forms of communication, we believe the time has come to provide a system built for the needs of today’s enterprise organisation.”

“Moving from a personal email system to team-based platform where people see everything can be an adjustment, the same goes for using tagging instead of file folders or commenting on a message instead of forwarding an email. But the benefits far outweigh the costs as we save 2 to 4 hours people spend each day filing messages,” Mr Pullen continued.

According to Mr. Hjelle, SEDNA is able to address the needs of the teams at Western Bulk, “Because the system brings all the context to a transaction, together in one place. The emails, conversations, comments are all there and searchable in a way that is so fast it is changing our workflows.”

“As a team-based cloud solution, SEDNA is accessible to everyone. People love the fact they can find the information they want, whenever or wherever they need. The mobility and speed is helping the organisation be more efficient and that is helping us work smarter, together.”{/mprestriction}
