    When can I start?

    How does smartphone connect to the server?

    Through a simple internet connection (data packet or wifi).

    Can smartphone be setup to only run this business app?

    Android devices can be switched to "kiosk mode" so only specific applications can run, and users do not have access to other apps on the smartphone, such as calls, social media and browsers.

    What are the costs for sharing the tally records with other systems?

    Standard extract features are available, so you can transfer the tally records to Excel or another in-house system. Likewise, you can share the tally records electronically with the vessel deck crew, the shipping line agent or principal, next port or discharge ports, as well as with the cargo exporter or importer.

    No additional costs!

    Will the costs increase, if I have many tallymen each with a smartphone?

    Subscription fees are fixed per site per month, irrespectively of how many tallymen and smartphones you use.

    How do I setup more smartphones?

    You create additional pairing codes yourself from your cloud login, or ask support@arl-shipping.com to assist you.

    Do I pay for support?

    Email support (in English) is included in the monthly fees. Regular upgrade of features is also included.

    Any additional software or hosting costs?

    Can the tally records be extracted and used in other systems?

    Standard extract features are available from your cloud login, so you can transfer the tally records to Excel, or another in-house system. The vessel deck crew, the shipping line agent or principal, next port or discharge ports, as well as with the cargo exporter or importer might also be able to reuse the tally recordings electronically -you can just pass onwards.

    You can continue tallying on the smartphones; the timestamp and GPS location is still recorded in real-time. When the smartphone is again connected to the internet, all outstanding tally records are sync'ed to the cloud.
