BAPLIE Viewer Upgrades Container Cargo Tools


BAPLIE Viewer, a website used to visualize, summarize, and edit BAPLIE files, has announced the release of new functionality available within the tool.

The online platform provides container cargo operators with a customizable environment to handle SMDG UN/EDIFACT BAPLIE EDI files in accordance with company operations and industry standards.

New features released this month include advanced queries, pivot table reporting, and realistic 3D models of vessel data.

Ruth Traynor, Director of BAPLIE Viewer’s Customer Service, said: “We have considered the demands and needs of the industry and built our platform to better equip users with functionality to easily summarize, visualize, and edit BAPLIE files.

“As terminals are being tasked with becoming more efficient in their day-to-day operations, they require reliable and intuitive technology systems with features to reduce the time spent performing manual analysis.

“With the BAPLIE Viewer Online tool, users are empowered to work more effectively, and with seamless team collaboration, there is a capacity to impact overall productivity of the operation.”

The updated BAPLIE Viewer Online framework allows for more user customizations across multiple BAPLIE files, allowing user-preferred reports to generate automatically.

With the new advanced query feature, it is possible to build complex queries to filter the BAPLIE data by any combination of attribute values.

BAPLIE Viewer’s announcement stated that its new pivot summary allows users to “dynamically generate reports using a spreadsheet pivot table style tool”, and save them for future use across BAPLIE files.

It added that improvements to the 3D vessel view functionality has provided “a more realistic representation” of vessels.

BAPLIE Viewer is also receiving additional updates for future release, such as the ability to perform load operations and an option to import data from Excel.

This next phase of updates has a target completion date of Q2 2018.
