Hanseaticsoft launches ‘Efficiency Booster bundle’ to automate business processes

To help shipping companies digitalise essential business processes during the Coronavirus pandemic, Hanseaticsoft has launched an Efficiency Booster bundle giving companies access to 15 applications which are part of its Cloud Fleet Manager (CFM) portfolio.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} With many companies facing changes to normal working practices including more staff working remotely or having to self-isolate on board or on shore in different locations, having a digital infrastructure to enable employees to work effectively together, whilst apart is crucial.

The Efficiency Booster bundle is designed to help companies eliminate hidden information silos and share data and information no matter where employees are located, enabling them to streamline processes, work more efficiently and free up time to focus on other tasks.

The Efficiency Booster doesn’t require time-consuming installation or migration, and all applications run natively in the browser, so no desktop applications or browser-plugins are required and they can be accessed from anywhere in the world. To gain insights on the move, the bundle is also complemented by a free Android and iOS app called ‘CFM Go’ to enable untethered mobility.

Software apps include a Partner Portal for sharing information with partner organisations to ensure supply chains are not interrupted; Employees app to manage all employee data; Holidays app for planning staff absences and MRV & IMO DCS to ensure continued compliance with regulations at a touch of a button.

There is also a Port app which can help crew find contact details and other information quickly and a Disturbance Report app for managing service requests and assigning them directly to the person responsible.

Alexander Buchmann, managing director, Hanseaticsoft said: “In the shipping industry there is a constant pressure to drive efficiencies and find operational savings. This is being amplified during the coronavirus pandemic with companies facing challenges around working practices and putting established ways of working to the test.

“Accessing and exchanging of information, as well as collaboration between colleagues on and off shore, can become difficult, if not even impossible without a robust digital infrastructure. Our Efficiency Booster bundle gives shipping companies the ability to introduce a digital system quickly to manage processes more efficiently no matter where office staff and crew are based and give access to data in real-time.

“Companies benefit from this software immediately, helping them to overcome challenges due to Coronavirus, but it will also set them up for the future giving them the digital tools to become more efficient operationally and remain competitive.”

The Cloud Fleet Manager Efficiency Booster is delivered as a SaaS solution with shipping companies paying a monthly subscription fee for every vessel they want to integrate with the software. {/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.
