Abacus Ship Management chooses MESPAS maritime software

Abacus Ship Management has installed the MESPAS maritime software across its fleet of 13 ships.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} The MESPAS platform is used to integrate processes from ship to shore to supplier.

Abacus signed the contract with MESPAS in January this year. In February, MESPAS Technical Ship Management software (TSM) was installed and by the end of March the company’s ships were up and running. Within a little more than 2 months the implementation was complete.

This was achieved during the rapid spread of the Corona Virus so that implementation and training were all carried out remotely. This was reported to be possible due to the flexibility of the Abacus staff and online availability of the MESPAS system and data via its unique database in the cloud. This database contains the technical details of the millions of pieces of machinery required on a ship. The unique dataset was mapped to all sister vessels in the Abacus fleet so that each vessel received ship specific data and could start working immediately. Data management  is  made  easy,  eliminating  the necessity  for  typing  in  information, avoiding  errors and reducing workload. 

Rajan Gupta, managing director at Abacus, said: “We are excited about working with MESPAS. Their project managers were highly  competent  and  efficient.  On  one  single  platform  we  can  now  exchange  information  for maintenance, QHSE, operations and procurement amongst all our vessels and offices. The preventive maintenance and QHSE modules from MESPAS mean that are team know exactly which tasks need carrying out on our ships and are always up to date”.

MESPAS recently released a new video describing the advantages of the software. View the video here https://youtu.be/TN76CPVJ4Pc  {/mprestriction}
