LR invests in Hanseaticsoft

Lloyd’s Register (LR) reports that it has made a “significant investment” in Hamburg-based ship management software provider Hanseaticsoft, as part of the class society’s strategy to improve its range of digital services.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Hanseaticsoft clients for its Cloud Fleet Manager system, used to manage inspections, crew management, purchasing and other processes, include NSC, Peter Döhle Schifffahrts KG, Rigel, Atlantic Lloyd and UASC.

This investment follows LR’s recent acquisition of the SEASAFE software portfolio, used for real-time data management of on board loading and stability for vessels and offshore structures, and its collaboration with QinetiQ on a new Cyber Secure programme.

LR has also formed a strategic partnership with QiO, a provider of data platforms and Cloud-enabled systems for Big Data analytics.

“This combination of ship management software, risk modelling and cyber physical solutions, underpinned by the value which big data analytics brings, are the building blocks of the marine and offshore Industry 4.0,” said Nial McCollum, LR’s chief technology officer.

“The sophistication and scope of modern fleet management software has dramatically evolved to cover almost every aspect of vessel operations. We see ship management software as the portal through which we can provide additional integrated solutions for clients, providing a single platform for managing the optimal operation of their fleet, and ultimately their business – reducing costs, increasing return on investment and driving economies of scale from single ship to fleet.”

“We chose Hanseaticsoft simply because it is the most intuitive and integrated platform on the market and because of our shared vision for the future.”

Hanseaticsoft will remain an independent open platform but will have access to LR’s network to build its business, with three new Hanseaticsoft sales offices in Athens, Copenhagen and Singapore planned for 2017, and a minimum five other branches to follow in 2018.{/mprestriction}
