Wrist Ship Supply Launches New Software Programme to Safeguard Efficiencies and Seafarer Nutrition.

Wrist Ship Supply, one of the world's leading ship supply companies and part of the Wrist Group, announced the launch of its new software programme, Xena, aimed at streamlining the purchasing process for consumable ship supplies, optimising vessel economy and improving health at sea.

The new Xena software is a menu-planning tool and electronic cookbook that gives ship owners inventory control, reducing waste and enabling transparency to ensure that they stay within nutritional guidelines. Recipes in this program also provide cost per meal information and reconcile this against existing food stock.

Xena enables ordering, stock and menu planning that takes into account regulation around seafarer catering, stipulated in the Maritime Labour Convention (MLC) 2006. MLC 2006 has been ratified by 29 countries to date, and is expected to enter into force in 2013. Whilst the regulation will benefit ship owners by giving them a regulatory point of reference for the first time, this will bring additional complexities for ship supply.

Managing these complexities through an intelligent software system will therefore deliver genuine value to ship owners and operators, enabling them to concentrate on core operations, reducing the risk of fines and providing a procurement resource that delivers transparency and budget control.

Commenting on the launch at IMPA London 2012, Robert Steen Kledal, managing director, Wrist Ship Supply, said: “Transparency and budget control are key priorities for our customers, and in the current market, ensuring optimum efficiency is a challenge. Add to this the reality of regulation such as the Maritime Labour Convention 2006, and we see a real need for a software programme that can deliver a solution for both of these issues. Xena has been developed to provide an intuitive and interactive procurement process and we are pleased to launch this software at a time when efficiency is at a premium.”
