A partnership between two software developers has boosted ship fleet management and streamlined crewing operations.
ShipNet has joined forces with ShipMate in an exclusive arrangement to provide advanced workflow capabilities for crew management, procurement and vessel maintenance.
It combines ShipNet’s software for safety management, planned maintenances services (PMS) and procurement applications with ShipMate’s crewing and payroll programs.
“This unified solution is testament to our vision of developing an integrated platform,” said ShipNet chief executive Suren Thadani. “We have the capability to provide integrated services, with more than 18 strategic partners, with the intention of reducing the challenges of maintaining integrations and keeping the costs low.”
He continued “This is while giving our customers access to significant benchmarks, reports and information to make day-to-day decisions.”
This partnership will improve efficiency of onboard PMS and crewing across multiple vessel fleets and assist shipping companies with regulatory compliance and crewing standards.
ShipNet's maritime platform has been in use for more than 25 years and provides software to more than 200 maritime companies. It offers maritime customers financial, operations and chartering, safety management, PMS and procurement applications.
ShipMate’s crewing and payroll software handles large customer databases, such as its partnership with Shell, in the marine industry and provides two-way ship-shore communication of data and analytics in a maritime platform.
Online maritime platforms are one of the five technologies expected to shape ship maintenance over the next three years.
