The Sertica modules for Planned Maintenance, Procurement, Inspection and other functionalities will be rolled out over the first quarter of 2014, one group of ships at a time.
"In the difficult market environment prevailing in our industry, SERTICA delivers significant business benefits to us and our major business partners by giving us maximum transparency, especially in the fields of documentation and reporting,” said Heino Schepers, business manager in charge of commercial operations at HS Schiffahrts, which is based in Haren on the river Ems.
"We find the functional scope of Sertica very convincing,” added engineering manager Hans-Bernd Schepers, who is responsible for HS Schiffahrts’ fleet operations. “This easy-to-use solution will help us improve the efficiency of our fleet operations rapidly.”
“We also attach great importance to the Logimatic team's comprehensive on-site support during the implementation phase. And since the solution can be functionally upgraded step by step, we feel our ship management is going to be well-prepared for the future."
Niels Finn, general manager of Logimatic Germany, said: "The benefits of our modular software solution have been key to winning our first new client in Germany. As a reference project for Germany, this contract establishes a long-term close cooperation.”
Sertica comprises modules for Planned Maintenance (PMS), Fleet Management (FMS) and the procurement of spare parts and consumables. A number of optional modules can be added, covering functionality for docking, business intelligence and reporting.
It has been class-type approved by DNV and Bureau Veritas.
Logimatic says that it can customise the software to each client’s individual needs.
