Hanseaticsoft and iMarine partner to streamline purchasing process

Hanseaticsoft may 13

Maritime management software provider Hanseaticsoft and e-procurement specialist iMarine Software have announced a partnership agreement to integrate their platforms to streamline purchasing processes.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} Hanseaticsoft offers a cloud-based management system for shipping and ship management companies, Cloud Fleet Manager (CFM). The system offers more than 30 different modules to enhance efficiency across different departments of a company, including a procurement module, CFM Purchase, amongst others.

iMarine Software provides the cloud-based eProcurement platform SeaProc to ease order management between vendors and buyers, and this will be directly integrated into CFM Purchase to further ease processes for customers.

Due to the use of APIs, the key benefits will be that the speed of handling and managing orders and inquiries will be drastically enhanced. Requests created in CFM Purchase and the corresponding offers generated by SeaProc will be automatically exchanged between the two systems, removing the need to switch solutions (e.g. to check open requisitions) during the procurement process or to enter data twice.

This integration redefines the procurement process and further enhances usability by offering a harmonised user experience, embedded intelligence, a single platform for trading partner collaboration, and unified solution integration.

Alexander Buchmann, CEO, Hanseaticsoft, commented: “We are very happy to have found a new partner who shares our mission to provide software solutions to the maritime industry that are intuitive and easy to use, while increasing efficiency. Innovative cloud-based solutions are now being embraced within the maritime industry, which enable companies to optimise the management of their entire fleet and automate fundamental processes. Having iMarine Software as a partner and building the SeaProc platform into our state-of-the-art CFM contributes significantly to the overall purpose of improving business performance, increasing operational efficiencies, and ultimately, profitability.”

SeaProc is a source-to-receive cloud procurement solution powered by Amazon Web Services. SeaProc connects ship operators with over 50,000 vendors globally and provides a uniform platform for managing and monitoring technical trading, including contract management, e-invoicing, logistics, business reporting and trading rule management in a scalable and secure environment. The service is backed by a 24/7 support centre that monitors trading and assists users based on urgent response time policy.

“We are pleased to add Cloud Fleet Manager to our extensive list of maritime management systems. This is a unique symbiosis of two cloud-to-cloud companies sharing a technical vision for how procurement should be managed in a world of evolving challenges. As partners we believe that technological innovation will forever change how trading is accomplished across the global marketplace. Given such conditions, speed, agility and accuracy are paramount drivers to a purely cloud based workflow. That vision is now realised and fully mature,” said Peder Arstorp, chief commercial officer, iMarine Software (SeaProc). {/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.
