BASS has clinched a fleet-wide system upgrade contract to move the ships of K-Line group subsidiary Taiyo Nippon Kisen Co. (TNKC) to the latest version of its software.

The Norwegian software provider says that 107 TNKC vessels will operate on its BASSnet 2.8 Fleet Management System. The Japanese ship management company had been using BASSnet 2.0 since 2001.

“The key attraction of the latest BASSnet software for us is that it drives productivity improvement in our fleet to exciting new levels,” said TNKC’s senior managing director Nakanishi Shinsei.

“With the seamless migration process managed by BASS, we anticipate rapid gains in our ship management processes immediately.”

Among the ships being upgraded, 79 are from TNKC’s base in Kobe and another 28 ships are from its Manila office.

In place of the legacy Easy Info application included in the system, TNKC will be equipped with the BASSnet Operations and BASSnet Document Manager modules. BASSnet Operations streamlines tasks like certificate tracking, voyage management, location management and maintaining electronic logs, among other things. BASSnet Document Manager is a document and content management solution that serves the domain of ship/shore operations.

Besides BASSnet 2.0, TNKC has also been using BASSnet SAFIR, a module that streamlines and automates safety information reporting.

The modules that will be upgraded are BASSnet Maintenance, BASSnet Procurement and BASSnet SAFIR. BASSnet Maintenance helps users plan and execute the maintenance of their fleet and manage their global stock of spare parts. BASSnet Procurement streamlines purchasing activities and optimises the purchasing cycle. BASSnet SAFIR is designed for the reporting and analysis of events arising from accidents and hazards that affect ship operations.

TNKC will be maintaining its current BASSnet Accounting and BASSnet CrewNet systems for the time being.
