Seamless Integration

ClearLynx technology helps you manage bunker data flow.

ClearLynx has worked with Commercial Operations software companies to integrate our platform into their applications. Using our web-based APIs, it is easy to push and pull information from both systems. The simple integration process give you the commercial features you want in your application while not having to sacrifice the bunker features you need in ClearLynx.

Initially, key bunker requisition data comes into ClearLynx from their systems. ClearLynx users then perform the necessary tasks of procuring the fuel and those results are store in ClearLynx.

Both bunker stem and bunker invoice data can be transferred into and out of ClearLynx, saving you the time while ensuring accuracy. Additionally, ClearLynx approval roles can be mapped to client ERP systems and exchange approval data as well.

  • Omit need for double data entry
  • Information accurately transferred between systems
  • More timely data
  • Improve the level of transparency
  • Additional data captured by ClearLynx can be fed into Commercial systems to improve their data mining capabilities
