Thor Offshore, an offshore support services provider and fisheries company, has chosen the integrated software suite BASSnet Fleet Management Systems as a part in its strategy to expand offshore operations globally. In parallel with Thor’s fleet expansion, BASSnet is being implemented across its current fleet of 29 vessels and its shore-based organization.

Giving a resounding endorsement to BASSnet software solutions, Thor, based at the Faroe Islands in the North Atlantic, has chosen to install the complete BASSnet suite covering planned maintenance, procurement, crew management, safety and risk management, projects, as well as management dashboard with KPIs. This will ensure that its fleet keeps humming at peak efficiency.

Thor’s management saw that they were undoubtedly on to a good thing after a stringent and exhaustive evaluation of BASS software solutions against alternative fleet management solutions in the market.

Gunnbjørn Joensen, Managing Director of Thor, said, “Our evaluation considered the crucial need to keep the top management informed on their vessels operations via reporting across the fleet, the company and different departments. Based on the facts and figures, we are able to make wise decisions.”

This complete solution enables Thor to streamline all aspects of its ship management while increasing operational excellence, upholding an impressive safety performance and carrying out their upcoming fleet expansion in an efficient manner, BASS said.

The range of BASSnet Fleet Management Systems chosen by Thor proves conclusively that the discerning maritime company is fully convinced about investing in IT solutions as the only smart choice in today’s rapidly transforming maritime environment.

“We are impressed by the superior functionality of BASSnet solutions, and the extent to which these solutions enable Thor to streamline its end-to-end business processes,” Joensen said.

Thor’ Strategic Purchasing Manager, John Eikhólm added that with the new system implementation, the company expects to increase efficiency and achieve significant savings as a result of streamlining operations.

“The BASS concept of developing one complete solution that integrates all aspects of maritime operations makes good sense to us,” said Eikhólm. “The advantages of managing the business in a holistic manner across all areas and departments, that is driving fleet performance to new dimensions, are obvious with the future-proof approach adopted by the BASSnet Fleet Management Systems.”

BASS’ Vice President of Sales Haakon Dalan said, “Our diversified and highly quality-conscious customer base propels us to anticipate industry needs and expectations. Thor’s faith in our business approach vindicates our vision and will drive us to stay on top of the game, keeping our fleet management solutions ahead of times.”

Another quality that convinced Thor to select this integrated system is the emphasis that BASS places on structured implementation, customer-orientation and 24/7 support, which bring the system’s users up to speed with a minimum of downtime.

With BASSnet Fleet Management Systems streamlining Thor’s operations, the company is poised for a targeted and controlled expansion while enjoying efficiency enhancement and giving customers’ needs paramount attention. For BASS, this holds excellent prospects to provide further software support and services for Thor’s growth.

Also, the addition of Thor to a growing list of industry-leading clients increases the momentum for BASS to scale new heights. The roll call of BASS’ clients includes global names like ‘K’ Line Ship Management, NYK Ship Management, Stolt Tankers, Hapag-Lloyd, Neptune Orient Lines, Oldendorff Carriers, MSI Ship Management, Golar LNG and CMA CGM to name a few.
