Softship launches new software for liner companies

Port Call Screen Port Call Screen Softship

Softship has launched a new software package for liner operators, to work alongside its existing vessel scheduling software VOYCES.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The new VOYCES PRO tools offer translation and transmission of standard vessel reports directly to shore-side applications, which can be used to update and amend schedules accordingly, as well as a bunker management module that analyses the impact on bunker consumption caused by vessel delays and schedule changes.

The system also links with the carrier’s booking software, to assist operators in managing load factors and capacity availability for an entire voyage.

On the port side, reporting of port call events, confirmation of cargo loaded/discharged and bunkers received is included, with all corresponding port costs automatically calculated, while a checklist facility is available to ensure all common tasks required while the vessel is in port are authorised, completed and checked.  

The ability to map and compare AIS positions of vessels alongside their scheduled position and highlight differences has also been included in the software.

“We always listen to our customers and this new package has been developed to meet real concerns and issues that are currently being voiced in the marketplace,” said Thomas Wolff, Softship executive director.

“Bunker costs, for example, represent a very significant slice of a carrier’s costs and our customers wanted a tool which would allow them see, immediately, the impact on bunker consumption for a variety of schedule change scenarios. VOYCES PRO enables this alongside a range of other new and topical tools.”

“This new software application is currently being rolled- out to various operators and I am pleased to report that these carriers are delighted with its functionality and the value it is bringing to their business.”{/mprestriction}
