We’ve had a busy month here at Martide. Although for the purposes of this post, when we say ‘we’ - we really mean our developers and tech team! Here’s a rundown of what they created, fixed and tweaked for you last month.

Shipowner/Manager Updates:

  • Shipowners can now register as a 'Ship Owner' allowing them to register a company themselves.
  • Shipowners can now send messages to a manning agent who sourced a seafarer - a chat option is now available in each step of the recruitment process.

  • Only Martide company users can see and manage seafarers who create an account themselves.
  • When creating positions, Shipowners/Managers can select the 'Martide' option at the advertising stage to allow us to find candidates for them.

  • If a seafarer passed the 'Interview Stage' but was then moved to a similar position using the same pipeline, the employer no longer needs to fill in the same interview answers as the questions will be automatically transferred.
  • Employers now receive Change Over Date reminder emails at 7 and 2 days before the date, as well as one day after.

Manning Agent Updates:

  • If a previously sourced candidate was hired by an employer and they decide to apply the candidate for another position the manning agent is notified by email.
  • Manning agents can now edit shipment details on the Shipment Page.
