Ship management company OSM Maritime Group has agreed a deal to implement the Cloud Fleet Manager (CFM) software system from Hamburg-based Hanseaticsoft to support digitalisation of company processes and management of organisational data.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}OSM Maritime plans to use the CFM portal as a central data and information platform, replacing other currently used technologies at the company, including its existing decentralised data storage system.

This single Cloud-based centralised information platform will then be used to facilitate information access and exchange across the company, with data from various external applications aggregated in the CFM portal and made available to OSM’s more than 11,000 global employees.

The shipping company will also introduce a CFM Partner Portal to integrate better with its own customers, providing those parties with access to relevant information such as fleet schedules.

In addition to the Cloud portals, OSM will also have access to Hanseaticsoft’s Inspection Report App, used to complete the entire vessel inspection process digitally, on a smartphone or tablet, with questionnaires created and filled directly on the device and then synchronised with the office.

“Many shipping companies have been stuck in the past due to their adherence to antiquated processes and software solutions. With increasing digitalisation it is important to adapt to changing events and market requirements and not only to react but also to develop innovations together with partners,” said Bjoern Sprotte, managing director of the technical management & services division at OSM.

“I am delighted we have found a strong strategic partner in Hanseaticsoft, which supports us with innovative and market-leading software applications to optimise everyday processes and make them more efficient.”

“We particularly appreciate the fact that as a customer we are in close contact with the developers, our requirements and wishes are addressed and we are actively involved in further developments and extensions of the applications.”{/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.
