(Press Release)
Tuesday, December 06, 2011
BASS Software Ltd, a leading provider of maritime software solutions, has added a top ranking customer to its expanding customer base with the German shipping giant Hapag-Lloyd AG choosing its fleet management systems. Hapag-Lloyd, which operates a fleet of more than 145 container ships, selected the BASSnet Fleet Management Systems to be installed initially on 40 vessels. “The signing up of Hapag-Lloyd is an outstanding endorsement of the BASSnet software,” said BASS Regional Manager, Torsten Ecks. “While Hapag-Lloyd’s requirements are stringent, I was confident that BASSnet would be the preferred  choice because the BASSnet Suite is a complete package for ship owners and managers with many positive attributes.” BASS’s contract with Hapag-Lloyd encompasses the complete BASSnet software suite, including all ten modules covering Maintenance, Procurement, Dry-docking, Safety, Risk Management, Operations and services like Database building and 
conversion. Hapag-Lloyd has opted for the latest integrated BASSnet suite, which enables users to access new and enhanced features.  Jens Habler, Hapag-Lloyd’s Senior Director IT Infrastructure & Operations Management said: “After a detailed evaluation process we identified BASSnet as the most complete and powerful fleet management suite in the market”. BASS CEO Per Steinar Upsaker said: “BASSnet’s success reflects the dedication, teamwork and customer-oriented approach of our company. It shows that BASSnet is meeting our customers’ requirements for a business driven, complete  all-in-one user-friendly suite. We can succeed even against hard competition, and of course it helps that our products are built on up-to-date technology, a single database and are unrivalled.”
The BASSnet suite, comprising maintenance, dry dock, procurement, quality and document management modules, among others will help Hapag-Lloyd streamline ship-shore communications, manage documentation and automate tasks such as tracking and scheduling maintenance, managing dry dock projects, enabling e-purchasing, and management reporting. The Safety Management module (SAFIR) facilitates audit and vetting processes.   Upsaker said: “In order to save costs, shipping firms need to automate. Invest in our integrated suite, and you will soon see the results in your bottom line.”
“The BASSnet suite is a complete ship management system for the maritime industry, designed with a great deal of industry expertise,” he said.
