The South East Alaska Pilots’ Association (SEAPA) of Ketchican, Alaska have contracted with Klein to implement a KleinPilot Dispatch and Billing system in advance of their busy cruise ship schedule beginning in May 2004.

In addition to the base system functionality SEAPA requested a Cruise Ship Scheduling feature which facilitates the pre-allocating of pilots for the entire season based on known cruise schedules. The system provides information to assist in the equalization of assignments for individual pilots and also factors in pilot travel requirements. As vessel schedules change throughout the season the system re-assigns pilots based on new cruise ship locations. The Klein Billing module automatically creates invoices on completed pilotage jobs and has the added ability to manage multiple ‘contract based’ tariffs.
