Wallem Group has selected a complete suite of integrated software from BASSnet Fleet Management Systems to manage its entire fleet of more than 180 ships.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Wallem will use the BASSnet suite of products as a total solution for maintenance, safety, operational and financial management and more on a fleet-wide basis. BASSnet products incorporate modular features with progressive and responsive web applications and mobile apps. The fleet management systems provide an overall bird’s eye view of fleet performance and highlight areas for improvement. “This makes BASSnet the ideal one-stop solution to streamline and increase fleet efficiency, asset management, and safety,” said Per Steinar Upsaker, CEO and managing director of BASSnet.

The integrated nature, functionality and technological strategy of BASSnet are reported as key elements in Wallem’s decision to sign with BASS. For BASS, this partnership marks a key milestone and signals a wider move to complete enterprise solutions in the maritime industry as a means to effectively standardise ship processes.

“Having run several maritime software companies and considering the complexities of operations, compliance and the regulatory environment, I was keen to not reinvent the wheel,” said Frank Coles, CEO of Wallem Group. “We have chosen to install a cloud-based COTS solution, without customisation.  Exactly how digitalisation is supposed to be done.  We are going to defy the myth that ship operations and management needs to be different, or somehow special.  It does not need all the disparate or heavily customised homegrown systems.  This is the stuff of myths created by a lack of understanding or appreciation and old fashioned operational techniques.”

“In my view, offering transparency, analytics and business intelligence is the way forward for high-performance fleet management, and implementing a complete enterprise solution from BASSnet will allow us to integrate the power of big data with our business processes,” added Coles.

“BASSnet Fleet Management Systems is a complete solution that removes the reliance on multiple vendors for piecemeal software,” noted Per Steinar Upsaker. “We have prioritised a well-thought-out strategy that is forward-looking, comprehensive and puts BASSnet in a unique position. This includes the incredible convenience and security of managing an entire fleet using a single database on a state of the art platform.”
