In this paper, we present a system based on the integration of Internet, Intranet and database technologies and implemented for Patras' Port Authority in Greece. The system intends to modernize and automate the Port Authority's working practices through the introduction of new technologies. Its main goals were to facilitate the exchange of information among the Port Authority's various departments, to provide useful information to the public, to facilitate the exchange of statistical data between the shipping agents and the Port Authority's corresponding employees. The introduction of these new technologies however, raised the issue of training employees with varying backgrounds in using them. For this purpose, the system includes a training application using various educational patterns.
