Danaos Management Consultants achieved over two decades of success in an evolving software market


The last 20 years has seen a seismic shift in the software market moving from Dos to Windows and then the advent of the internet, but throughout Danaos Management Consultants has kept evolving to meet the needs of its clients.

Our basic aim at the beginning was to deliver a fully integrated solution to ship-management. The approach was novel in its attempt to control non-flexible cost elements and to optimize the flexible.

The first version was launched in 1988 and by the early 1990s the company had gained over 50 clients. Danaos opened its first branch in the UK in 1992 followed by expansion in the USA.

The era heralded a watershed in shipping with the conceptualization of new shipping regulation designed to enhance safety and bring greater transparency to the sector. Danaos' breakthrough came with the launch of its window-based software in 1996 was well-timed to coincide with the implementation of the ISM code two years later. The first windows version was compatible with the audit control required by ISM and provided companies with a two-year window for implementation.

In the late 90s and early 2000 the company put all its efforts into its Enterprise solution with enhancements to meet the new goal-based concepts such as TMSA. The new system is fully integrated at database and execution level providing seamless transfer of data.

It also moved into the outsourcing business with the set-up of its business process services company in India to fulfill the backend data inputting for shipping companies. Data entry is a vital component, but many companies don't appreciate the vast efforts involved in inputting and upkeep. Outsourcing allows companies to focus on their main business of running and managing ships.

Danaos continues to expand internationally by opening new branches in 2003 in Cyprus and in 2005 - 2006 in Norway and Germany, and by appointing representatives in Istanbul, Dubai and Singapore.
