Note: that each user must have a name, and the login belongs to that user, and only that user will get support for that login.

Setting up a SmartCon account

If your company is already registered with us, you can purchase a SmartCon account from “My Account”, under “SmartCon”. If not, you will need to submit your company details to get an account.
On the ordering page, choose the option or package best suited for your company. In the basket you will decide whether to get an invoice (only for subscriptions) or pay directly with a credit card.

Payment with invoice: You will gain access to setup the users and start a contract within 10 minutes. However, the FINAL option under “Send contract as PDF” will not be available until we receive the payment for the start-up fee and subscription.

Payment with credit card: Everything will be ready within 10 minutes.

The user that purchased SmartCon should receive 2 emails:

1. A Microsoft invitation that needs to be accepted in order to complete the registration.

2. An intro email with a short video on how to get to the first contract.

Invoicing 

Users will be invoiced annually and the company will get an invoice for renewal 40 days prior the renewal date.

Finals for the subscription option is not prepaid or included. An invoice will be created by the system every time you reach the amount setup for your company. If you have usage above € 40, but haven't reached your invoice amount within 3 months, an invoice will be created. And if you have some usage but haven’t reach the invoice amount within 6 month and invoice will be created for what ever usage you may have. As long as the invoices are paid within the due date, you will be able to continue the usage of Finals. If an invoice has past the due date, you won’t be able to produce Finals until we receive the payment for the outstanding invoice.

SmartCon add-in

Even though the SmartCon add-in is not needed to create a contract, this is truly what makes SmartCon easy to use within the Word option. The SmartCon add-in can be download from “My Account” under “SmartCon” once the account is setup. Please see our FAQ for more information.

VPS Bunker Alerts

Veritas Petroleum Services (VPS) publish regular Bunker Alerts based entirely on fuel samples and have kindly permitted BIMCO’s Members to access this information.

The Bunker Alerts are not intended to be an evaluation of overall bunker quality in the port or area concerned, but usually highlight a specific parameter within the fuel which has raised a quality issue.
