ABS NS Releases Next Generation of NS5

(Press Release)
Monday, August 29, 2011

ABS Nautical Systems announced the redesign and release of its suite of asset management software, NS5. Continually evolving to meet industry needs, NS5 Enterprise has a versatile design that allows all users – from senior management to crew members – 24/7 access to relevant data from their overall business landscape. While owners and senior management have the capability to retrieve the latest real-time information that drives their business, the status of their fleets, shipboard and shoreside users can reference this same data as it relates to their particular job functions.
This new element provides dashboards with customized views to examine Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) including fleet-wide data for maintenance, supply chain, safety and personnel records. With access to the latest business intelligence data and the ability to drill down into vessel specifics, NS5 Enterprise serves as the backbone for improved planning decisions.  
“Data that senior management normally request from managers regarding the status of their fleet is directly available to them anytime, anywhere,” said Fernando Lehrer, Vice President of Product Development at ABS Nautical Systems. “In addition, crews can see how their job functions tie into the overall success of the company. These are significant steps to improving communication on all fronts.”
ABS Nautical Systems also recognizes the value of customer feedback and as such, NS5 Enterprise was designed in partnership with a global usability research firm that focuses on improving user experience. They garnered and incorporated direct feedback from ABS Nautical Systems’ clients to advance numerous critical software performance elements, such as user experience, navigation, speed and reporting. They brought a wealth of experience to the NS5 Enterprise design and functionality through their work with Fortune 500 companies that include Motorola, Abbott and Verizon Wireless.
Additionally, major advancements have been made to NS5 Enterprise’s system performance, in particular as it relates to searching and retrieving large quantities of data. Users have the ability to load data or run reports, regardless of size, in a tenth of the time it previously took.
A “Live” version of NS5 Enterprise is also available. The business database is hosted on a dedicated server and access is as easy as logging in with a user ID and password. This option eliminates the need for remote office licenses and installations, while significantly reducing IT infrastructure costs.
“We are very pleased to announce the release of NS5 Enterprise, especially as we move forward in making our products more simplified for its users,” said Karen Hughey, President and COO of ABS Nautical Systems. “More than ever, we are offering increased value, better intelligence and stronger communication to establish NS5 Enterprise as the must-have tool for the global maritime industry.”
