ClassDirect Live Wins Microsoft Award


ClassDirect Live, the Web-based marine information service from Lloyd's Register (LR), has triumphed at the Microsoft Digital Britain Awards. ClassDirect Live won a Knowledge Management Business Award, in the category for 'Best use of IT for improved decision making', confirming LR's position as a leader in provision of e-solutions to the marine industry. The award, sponsored by SAP and Management Today, recognises excellence through the use of IT for market and competitive responsiveness, effective business planning and support of the decision-making process.

Making the award, Microsoft Digital Britain commented: "ClassDirect Live has taken an industry with a deeply historical background and brought it into the digital age. By providing over 5,500 ships with rapid access to accurate survey, maintenance and technical standards information from any location. It has promoted decision making when and where it is needed, including on-board ship".

The latest version of ClassDirect Live, launched on June 5, 2000, at the Posidonia exhibition in Greece, offers two levels of access. The first provides shipowners and fleet managers with free access to up-to-date survey status listings, survey planners and the facility to order surveys online - anytime, from anywhere, and at no cost. The second level of access - CDLive EXTRA - provides even more comprehensive information to further help shipowners and managers with their daily business-critical decisions, and helping to lower the risks to safety and to their business performance. Microsoft Digital Britain added: " This highly focused application has simplified planning and improved collaboration between shipowners and surveyors. What distinguished this entry was the delivery of updated information anywhere in the world, together with the way in which it has created an electronic community within its industry".
