“I have been in the IT industry for 45 years, from programmer to CIO of a large IT consulting company. I have been DDI’s technical advisor for four years. I was asked by Jody Newman to evaluate DDI software applications from Labor Orders and Scheduling to the Association module.
I reviewed the software schema, the source code, comments to the code and the tables. I vetted all seven production applications. I am truly impressed. DDI websites and applications are elegantly simple, scaleable, yet fast and full of robust functionality. Had these applications been built by anyone else, development costs would have exceeded $2 million, with a minimum of 2 years for software development and testing of ONE application.
In my professional opinion, Jody Newman has pulled off what I consider close to an IT miracle. I would challenge anyone, including any experienced IT professional, to even come close to what she has accomplished in such a short period of time.”

.A two-week pilot program, funded by USMX, provided live and fully operational testing of the Harbor Watch scheduling and dispatch applications. Three seniority-based applications were tested in the Port of Charleston: Mustering, Maintenance and Single Seniority. During the two week pilot application performance exceeded all expectations.
“I think Harbor Watch is fantastic. The 1771 website is awesome. Let’s get the rest of the stevedores together after our Atlanta meeting.”

"Harbor Watch is a great product; great service, everyone loves it. Just wish it was around 36 years ago
when I first started."
36 year Member ILA Checkers Local 1771 Charleston SC
“These clerks are hooked on Harbor Watch live dispatch like a smoker to nicotine! The website goes down for a few minutes and you’d think their world just came to an end. They watch it like a TV Show every night as the dispatcher fills jobs… unbelievable! No going back now. They couldn’t function without it.”
President ILA Local 1593
“For the last 4 years I’ve worked at Local 1771 dispatching members on Harbor Watch. Training was painless. Day to day scheduling is really easy. Members count on it every day for their jobs. We couldn’t be without it.”

Senior Dispatcher ILA Local 1771
