Marcura Testimonial2

Clipper Bulk has been using DA-Desk since 2006 and added PortPayables, Dashboards, and KPIs over the years, which have turned the use of DA-Desk into a streamlined process throughout the organisation, with cash flow optimisation, easier closing, and reconciliation of voyages and less paperwork.”

Erik B Terkildsen
Head of Operations – Copenhagen

“Marcura is the market leader in disbursement accounts and other platforms that come along with the port call process. Marcura can manage a high volume of port calls – and this was the main factor to come over Marcura.

Partnering with Marcura helps Eagle to perform better, to process accounts quicker and leverages on data and resources Marcura has all in one platform.”

Marc Radulovic,
Senior Operations Manager

We see a clear difference in the quality and efficiency we can achieve and now just one person is able to manage the DAs of the entire company.”
