MARS Estimate and InspectorMARS are mobile apps used to create repair estimates for Hapag-Lloyd shipping containers.

MARS Estimate is a straight forward app that creates Hapag-Lloyd repair estimates with photographs. The whole process is carried out by the app independently with no attached back end.

InspectorMARS on the other hand not only creates estimates, but is also a fully integrated system with a cloud back end. It allows multiple surveyors to use the system and share repair tariffs and pricing.

Please visit each app’s page for further details.

MARS Estimate App

MARS Estimate is our Android app to create Hapag-Lloyd shipping container repair estimates. It is available for download in the Google Play Store here.

This app runs on Android phones or tablets and allows shipping container surveyors to create repair estimates for Hapag-Lloyd. Estimates can be inputted quickly and easily, whilst ensuring that the correct Hapag-Lloyd MARS code is used. No looking up of MARS codes. Simply select from short pick lists.

The surveyor can take photographs of any damage as they inspect the container and these are automatically attached to the estimate. Once complete the repair estimate can be emailed to the customer and/or the surveyor’s office.

As the estimate is fully coded it can be used by other staff members to input into the Hapag-Lloyd FIS system, saving the surveyor from having to return to the office, or any further work creating and sending estimates or processing photographs.

It saves time for the surveyor and allows Hapag-Lloyd to receive correctly coded estimates quicker.

Other than sending the estimates by email, the app does not need an internet connection, meaning inspections can be done anywhere. Surveyors can input as many estimates as they want, and then when they are ready, and able to connect to the internet, send the estimates by email.

The estimates emailed to the surveyor’s office can be stored in the company’s email system, forming a database of all the estimates for easy storage and access by for other members of staff.

When the container is surveyed by the customer’s surveyor, the estimate can be reworked in the app and a fresh copy sent to the office.

When repairs are authorised the estimate email can then be forwarded to the workshop, simplifying processes and ensuring that the workshop know exactly what repairs are to be done.

InspectorMARS App

InspectorMARS is an Android app used to create repair estimates for Hapag-Lloyd shipping containers.

It allows shipping container surveyors to create repair estimates for Hapag-Lloyd quickly and easily, even without an internet connection.

Surveyors can price repairs themselves or use pre-loaded tariffs of labour hours and material costs.
Tariffs will automatically price each repair ensuring that prices are always correct and consistent.

Automatically create professional estimates which can be sent without delay from the app to Hapag-Lloyd.
Copies of every estimate are also sent to the company’s email address to enable estimates to be organised and stored in the company’s email system.

Tariffs can be imported from excel worksheets, allowing automated pricing of repairs.
There is also a back end messaging system for sending of estimates and photographs, with a synchronised message status system, so surveyors can see what messages have been sent to customer and when.
