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}

  • GTReplicate averts looming ship-shore data transfer bottleneck

    GTMaritime has launched a new cloud-based tool to automate a key part of the data transfer process between ship and shore, relieving seafarers and shore teams of a growing manual file replication burden. GTReplicate is a cyber-secure solution that automates synchronisation of files and data relating to vessel operation with next to no intervention.

    With the quantity of data shared between vessels and shore-side teams increasing at an accelerating rate, personnel onboard and ashore are having to spend ever more time uploading, downloading and managing file transfers manually. As well as being tedious, such repetitive tasks increase error risks, with the potential for serious financial consequences if the data lost or overwritten is needed to verify compliance.

    Running on GTMaritime’s FastNet data transfer platform, GTReplicate provides a reliable and highly configurable automated alternative that reduces the growing administrative burden on fleet IT managers and frees up crew to use their time more constructively.

    GTReplicate is performance optimised for use in a marine environment. This means it operates across a variety of connectivity platforms, including 3G, 4G, L-band and VSAT, maximising throughput in each case. To further conserve bandwidth, GTReplicate monitors files intelligently, only sending on those that have changed since the last replication.

    Acknowledging the range of specialised software used on ships and the diversity of onboard network configurations between fleets, there are no artificially imposed limits on the type or size of file GTReplicate can handle. It also enables automated bi-directional transfer of selected files, folders, or entire folder structures with multiple mechanisms for maintaining total data integrity. Shore-side email can be used as both replication source and target.

    GTReplicate provides shore-based fleet IT managers with a central cloud-based dashboard for configuring and controlling every aspect of how replication takes place, without having to involve crew. Advanced options include ship-specific task creation as well as pre- and post-transfer processing for maximum flexibility.

    With a nod to an increasing need for stringent security auditing, GTReplicate comes complete with a full suite of notification, journaling and reporting functions as standard, ranging from basic timestamping to granular detail on execution status and files moved. Likewise, it features robust and flexible archiving functionalities.

    Mike McNally, global commercial director at GTMaritime, commented: “Shipowners are now embracing digitalisation as a low-overhead route to improved operational efficiency, but the growing information flow poses challenges for manual processes in ship-to-shore data transfer. GTMaritime created GTReplicate to provide a scalable, secure and highly configurable solution for automating file transfers and averting a data logjam.”

    FastNet is a multi-stream platform designed for today's data demands. Employing a variety of bandwidth management techniques, it optimises, secures and then transfers data packets according to business needs. It will form the core of all GTMaritime products going forward and can be made available to its customers for bespoke digitalisation projects.
