6/26/2014: National Maritime Center online chat function update

The National Maritime Center, or NMC, published a bulletin introducing its plan to test online chat services in two phases. Phase one, the use of a ticketing system, has progressed well with a somewhat limited customer volume but very good reviews. NMC is now moving forward to phase two of the test.

Beginning July 1, 2015, the live online chat functionality will be available for use.

Read the NMC’s update for full details on the new chat functionality.
