At Martide our goal is to make sure that our maritime recruitment solution is user-friendly, functional, and makes life easier for everyone - including seafarers, employers, and manning agents in the maritime industry.
We know that as a manning agent you have a lot of plates to spin to make sure you have the right balance between helping seafarers find jobs at sea and ensuring that shipowners and managers fill their open maritime jobs quickly and efficiently.
How to log in and get started on Martide as a manning agent
For this post we thought we’d give all of you hardworking manning agents in the maritime industry the lowdown on logging in to, and getting started with, your Martide account.
As a manning agent you are not able to create an account directly with Martide’s platform. But to enable you to get started you should have already received your login details from the Martide Sales Team. If for any reason you haven’t please contact [email protected] and let us know!
For the sake of this blog post, we’re going to assume that you have login information and that we can get going. So, first of all, log in to Martide.com.
Your manning agent user profile
Once you’ve logged in, it’s a good idea to check whether your profile information is correct. To do so, click on the small square image in the top right corner and select Profile.
You’ll be taken to your Profile page where you can check that your name, email address and time zone are all to your liking. We recommend that you set a new password for your account - one that only you know.
It’s also helpful for anyone who comes into contact with you if you upload a profile picture. Your profile page looks like this:
Your company details and description
Next you’ll need to enter details about the company you work for. To do that, click on Settings (also in the drop down menu underneath the image in the top right hand corner.) You’ll see some icons and headings - click on Company Profile:
Now you can add your company's details including:
- The company’s name and URL (website address).
- A description of your company.
- The address (click on the blue plus sign to add an address - you can add as many as you like.)
- Info about, and copies of, company documentation. These are easy to upload from your PC or device and you can add as many attachments for each document entry as you like.
- The company’s phone number - again you can add as many as needed.
- The company's billing/bank details - as many entries as required.
- Company shipping information including contact and address.
We recommend that you also upload your company’s logo at the top of the page.
Additional user accounts
Chances are you’ll need to share some of the workload with your employees or teammates. We’ve made that simple for you to do by allowing you to create additional logins for your coworkers. To do this go back to Settings in the drop down menu under the icon (where your profile picture is now!) and select Teammates.
You’ll be taken to a page that looks like the image below. To create more accounts and make sure you’re not the only one doing all the work, click Add. You can now enter your co-worker's name, email address and permissions and send them an invite to join you on the platform.
