You can consolidate as many projects as you like simultaneously. All projects in the Advanced Module are exported to two separate files. One is in Excel and the other is in Access which is used as a back-end database. Consolidations are by selection in the Consolidation Reports/Options section where you can combine ship types, ship size, ship age etc.
So long as a project has been exported and loaded onto the Consolidation Module you have a combination of many options in a matrix. This can be by ship type or by specific lending bank or by DWT or year of build or a combination of any two or three of these. You can also combine dummy projects which can become actuals if the deals are completed. The combinations are endless.
Simply select and import the project and edit any part you want. To Import the project click on the Import Project in the Vessel Details/Project Specifications Menu Bar. This will automatically direct you to where all the Advanced Projects are stored. Select the project and click on Open. Once the project is loaded you can play around with any of your initial inputs and make whatever amendments and what if? scenarios you wish. If you want to save the changes simply click on Export Project.
There are in any single project two types of loans or two separate loans that can be used. These are an annuity based loan and a standard equal instalments loan. To combine these loans simply select a Yes or a No (Include/Omit) from Advanced Loan 1 or 2 Modules. You can combine or deselect any one loan therefore you can assess two separate scenarios and see what works best for the project. In consolidation however you can have many loans combined from different banks within the fleet. In this instance you can combine as many loans as there are in the fleet.
This is the simplest of programs to use and navigate. There is a Main Menu from where you can navigate to any report or data input area and return to the Main Menu in a similar manner. There are also specifically related Navigation Panes for each of the three main modules; Quick and Dirty (QnD), Advanced Module and Consolidation Module. Selecting the related Navigation Pane you will be able to navigate only to the related areas and therefore be able to make adjustments and view results immediately.
This is very simple. All you need to do is change the term of the loan and the sale date of the ship. With these two very simple changes the whole project can be assessed from a completely different view point. You should also make adjustments to the Employment of the ship if you wish to terminate the whole project.
These type of what if? scenarios are very fast and simple with Invest in Ships® program.
