How It Works


Simply buy what you need
As a user of The Digital Outfit Manager, you will receive a disc with the requested eBooks, ready to install onto your PC. You will be provided with a unique code which will allow access to the specific eBooks which you have purchased. However, you still have the option to purchase/download further eBooks as and when you require them.

Access the eBooks dependent upon your area or speciality
Depending on ship type or your area of particular interest or speciality, we have a list of recommended eBooks for each topic– for example, Liquefied Gas, Bulk Carriers, or Chemical Tankers

Add single eBooks to further customise your Library
You can also add any available title, from over 600 currently available eBooks to ‘The Digital Outfit Manager’, making it a fully customisable system.

Search eBooks for key words / titles; the search can cover all the eBooks in the system which or for specific searches you can apply your search to apply only to products you own and have already unlocked or even specific categories within the system.

Make your own notes
You can edit text and add annotations (like you would on a physical book).
