ABS unveils digital platform for data-driven insights

ABS has launched ABS My Digital FleetTM, a platform that provides real-time data-driven insights to improve fleet efficiency, reduce costs and help manage risks.

Timely access to relevant information to support the safe and efficient operation of assets is critical in the digital era and offers a competitive edge. Vessel data typically resides in disparate systems, including third party sources, that are not integrated, thereby hampering gathering data and timely decision making. The ABS My Digital FleetTM platform addresses this challenge by fusing multiple data sources into a single visualised web application, unlocking real-time multi factor risk-based analysis capabilities.

Users are provided with a high level of visibility at the equipment, asset, and fleet level. The flexible nature of the platform allows rapid systems integration and fast-tracking delivery of a comprehensive fleet overview for better risk management among other safety and operational benefits.

Real-time alerts, an easy to understand interface and the flexibility to use it anytime and anywhere means users can see an asset’s performance in terms of regulatory compliance, fuel efficiency, structural and mechanical integrity or any other system the user chooses to integrate through the ABS My Digital FleetTM platform.

“Digitalisation is the key enabler for asset management, sustainability and regulatory compliance strategies. Yet data silos and disparate systems have, until now, prevented owners and operators from realizing the safety and operational potential of their data. The ABS My Digital FleetTM web-based platform aggregates these data sources into one, centralized online environment and derives valuable insights by leveraging emerging technology such as artificial intelligence,” said Christopher J. Wiernicki, ABS chairman, president and CEO.

“It’s fast, scalable and highly configurable to a user’s business and fleet needs. It represents the next phase of our commitment to delivering the safety, environmental and economic benefits of digitalisation for the industry.”

 “With the right tools and solutions implemented, insights are delivered in real time through the ABS My Digital FleetTM, a configurable intelligence platform that can interface with client systems so users aren’t required to replace existing infrastructure. This makes ABS My Digital FleetTM ideal for shipowners and asset operators to maximise their investments in digital and sensor technologies,” said Kash Mahmood, ABS senior vice president, Digital Solutions.

  • Voyager PLANNING STATION gets major update

    Voyager Worldwide has announced a major upgrade to its Voyager PLANNING STATION navigation software. The new version features enhanced automation of route and passage planning, information sharing between ship and shore and new interactive guided workflow processes to reduce operational risk and streamline navigation processes.

    Voyager PLANNING STATION now automatically delivers digital and paper Notices to Mariners on board as soon as they available. Updates are transmitted via a secure link direct from Voyager Worldwide straight to the Voyager PC onboard to ensure vessels always have the latest information and prevent compliance issues.

    To complement the new fully automated update process, the size of the quarterly AVCS Admiralty Information Overlay update has been reduced by more than 85 per cent from 25MB to an average of 3MB to make ECDIS updating easier, faster and more cost-effective. The result is very simple fully automated electronic delivery of all updates and New Editions and smaller, more cost-effective data downloads that, together, remove any residual need to send physical CDs or DVDs to ships.

    “With its new levels of automation and enhanced user experience, this new version of Voyager PLANNING STATION provides comprehensive visibility of vessels against their planned routes and seamless distribution, updating and management of the data needed for e-Navigation. The result is better operational oversight that helps ship managers to safely and more efficiently manage their vessels and provides a faster, easier way for the bridge team to meet PSC and vetting requirements,” said Voyager Worldwide CEO, Kent Lee.

    In addition, a new built-in port to port routeing function enables users to select their departure and arrival port and generate a route. Routes automatically appear on either ENCs or Voyager’s integrated GIS map making it easy to refine waypoints to meet specific voyage requirements before clicking to identify and order the ENCs and other products needed for safe and compliant passage.

    For shore-based users who want to more clearly understand vessel status compared to the planned voyage, the enhanced Route sharing module now automatically uploads saved routes to Voyager FLEET INSIGHT, Voyager Worldwide’s web platform to allow ship management to monitor vessels on a 24/7 basis. Using Voyager FLEET INSIGHT, vessels can be monitored on a PC in the office as well as on the go via a tablet and smartphone.

    To provide better visibility of vessels’ compliance status and help reduce ECDIS and ENC related PSC observations and deficiencies, Voyager PLANNING STATION also now shows the details of when the ECDIS was last updated and shows when updates have not been applied. Voyager FLEET INSIGHT also enables vessels’ ENC, paper chart and publication orders to be viewed as an overlay on planned routes to enable more efficient order checking and approval and help reduce unnecessary purchasing.
