Norton Lilly international (NLI) recognizes that the financial relationship between Principal and Agent is of utmost importance, requiring maximum care and attention. Our Accounting Services group is committed to servicing your accounting needs in a timely, efficient, and professional manner.
Experienced staff – Our Accounting Management team has an average of 15 years experience per person in the financial side of the industry, having worked in various facets of the business. We pride ourselves on professionalism, team-effort, and courteous, prompt response to all inquiries.
Accounting System – Our PAS accounting system has been custom-designed for vessel accounting, providing the best tools in the business for efficient processing of accounts, and reporting of data. The system provides an on-line, interactive interface, which was specifically designed to expedite the timely and accurate issuance of Disbursement Accounts, as well as insuring proper application of remittances received from Principals, and subsequent payment to vendors.
Document Management System– All NLI port offices are online with our Collaborate Document Management System. This web-based system, allows us to route documents electronically in a controlled workflow environment. This reduces the time involved in review and coding of invoices, submitting of service purchase orders, and obtaining required support documents. This is all done in a paperless manner, via Collaborate DMS, improving efficiency, and eliminating errors and redundancy.
Integration – Our PAS and Collaborate systems are fully integrated with our Operational system, Agency Now. This provides a comprehensive view of each vessel call from the start of vessel operation through to the issuance of the Disbursement Account.
Client Interface – Agency World is a web-based system, available to those Principals who wish to view their operational and DA activity online, along with Business Intelligence information.
Quick Response – NLI offers our customers a single e-mail address for any accounting inquiries related to their vessel calls (firstname.lastname@example.org). These messages are responded to within 24 hours; and by working together with our port operations staff, we are able to resolve most accounting questions in a quick and efficient manner.
All Principal accounting records are segregated within our system, and Principals are free to audit these records at any time. We feel that it is important to provide our Principals with full access to all of their financial information.
