Heino Winter completes CFM implementation

German shipping company Heino Winter reports that it has completed the implementation of the Cloud Fleet Manager (CFM) software system developed by Hamburg-based Hanseaticsoft, part of an internal Heino Winter digitalisation strategy for the management of its eleven vessels.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The shipping company will use the majority of the modules available through the application as part of its operations, including the CFM Purchase module as well as the Partner Portal that allows partners and suppliers to be integrated directly into the company’s processes.

The Partner Portal grants those third parties access to specific areas of CFM modules only – enabling them to access relevant data the shipping company wishes to share within the CFM without the need to manually request that information via telephone or e-mail.

Further additional modules within the CFM will be used to manage fleet inspections, chartering of vessels, and administration of the crew.

“Already during the first presentation of the Cloud Fleet Manager, I was enthused by the number of solutions this software provides. For every department in a shipping company, there is a matching module in which all department-specific data is gathered – this is especially beneficial for me as a CEO to get a real time overview of all processes,” said Ronald Winter, CEO of Heino Winter.

“Furthermore, the Cloud Ship Manager (CSM) integrates the fleet and the crew on board into all processes thus enabling them to react fast to corrective actions and easily enter data into the modules of the system.”

“Due to the automatic synchronisation of the data between vessel and shore, we can assure that we always work with the correct and latest data. This can simplify the management of modern shipping companies enormously.”{/mprestriction}

  • Move to the cloud to future proof your business, urges Hanseaticsoft MD

    With the maritime industry in constant change due to new regulations and processes, and the COVID-19 pandemic having had a dramatic impact on economies around the world, shipping companies need to stay competitive and plan for their future, says managing director of Hanseaticsoft, Alexander Buchmann. 

    He notes these challenges are leading more shipping companies to move their management processes and systems into the cloud, to optimise their processes and increase efficiencies.

    However, there are still some in companies which are slow to invest in digital systems and software because they do not understand how easy it can be.

    “Going digital can really help maritime companies futureproof their businesses – moving them away from outdated, legacy technology systems to using intuitive and flexible cloud-based solutions to manage their entire fleets," said Buchmann. "Some may get left behind because they are unaware of just how simple it is to move to the cloud. They wrongly assume that changing their software would involve manually transferring all their information and data which would take significant time and money. They worry they may lose vital information especially if data is held in different systems or they may need to allocate extra man hours to get this done."

    “But this isn’t the case. It is a very straightforward process to transfer data from a wide range of older maritime management systems quickly and without staff having to dedicate time doing this. Thanks to a variety of powerful application programme interfaces, or APIs, data can be imported from most maritime systems into a new software solution.

    “As we move through the pandemic, we expect more companies will adopt cloud-based software solutions to streamline their management and operational processes, become more efficient and stay competitive in what could be challenging economic conditions ahead.”

    One of the key benefits of using cloud-based software is that it enables the real-time sharing of information and data. With data accessible in one central place, it breaks down business silos and enables employees to communicate, share information and collaborate easily no matter where they are located.

    Business critical information such as important maritime instructions, crew schedules, payroll data and other key communications can be shared by the team onshore with crews at sea and actioned immediately, ensuring the company is responsive and dynamic and can react to any situation.

    It also supports better data management and analysis which improves business decision making, business performance and success. The cloud facilitates the sharing of data from different sources, which can be transmitted from vessels simply and quickly. Data is synchronised as soon as it is entered into the system and can be accessed immediately by all relevant personnel.

    Hanseaticsoft's maritime software supports shipping operations without additional training. It can be used in the office, on mobile devices, and on ships. Data is securely saved and readily available in the cloud, allowing employees to access the same materials and work processes wherever they are based.
