Maersk Supply Service has announced that it has implemented the ship management system Cloud Fleet Manager from German software provider Hanseaticsoft.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} Maersk Supply Service will use the Cloud Crewing module of the web-based system for vessels and shore-bases to manage its crews and handle all crew-related tasks.  Cloud Fleet Manager benefits from a variety of interfaces (APIs) that can be used to import and export data from the system. It is also able to share data from Cloud Crewing with external providers, especially as the extensive APIs of the payroll module are primarily used to further utilise information for additional calculations and analytics using data warehouse (DWH) and Power BI.

“We selected Cloud Fleet Manager from Hanseaticsoft as our new Crew Management system. It combines a standard platform with comprehensive functionality with a high degree of usability, enabling us to deploy new features at a faster pace. Working closely with Hanseaticsoft’s dedicated team of professionals has contributed to a fast and straightforward implementation, and we have gained an increase in user satisfaction and efficiency,” said Kevin Bro Beier, head of crewing, Maersk Supply Service.

While implementing the system, data from four different solutions that were used to handle all the crew related tasks previously, was imported into Cloud Crewing, now replacing the legacy systems.  Maersk Supply Service can now perform its crew and vessel management related tasks using one central system rather than multiple different solutions, saving time, cost and resources.

Cloud Crewing will be used to manage general tasks such as the handling of crew’s activity-based payroll, the management of crew particulars, dynamic crew change management and to check compliance of documents. In addition to this, Maersk Supply Service is using Cloud Crewing’s Cashbox module to handle all cash on board, the Bonded Store to register and administrate all transactions from the onboard shop as well as the Crew Portal – enabling the crew to autonomously access and manage their personal data or documents and to access company news and shared data such as presentations or training schedules. Currently, a total of 1.100+ seafarers are managed using the new system.

Alexander Buchmann, CEO of Hanseaticsoft, commented: “Maersk Supply Service is one of the leading maritime service providers and we are very happy they have chosen our product to manage their crews.” {/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.
