Integration with Nautical Systems’ NS5 Enterprise Fleet Management Software Enhances Data Management

ABS announced a partnership with Engineering Software Reliability Group (ESRG), a provider of leading-edge data analysis and remote monitoring technology. The partnership will improve service offerings in real-time data management and analytics to the marine and offshore industries.

“The future of operational optimization and regulatory compliance in the marine and offshore industries lies in the ability to collect, analyze and act upon real-time data gathered from operations around the world,” said Karen Hughey, President and COO, ABS Nautical Systems. “ESRG’s experience and capabilities in vessel operational monitoring and analysis will help strengthen the NS5 Enterprise fleet management platform and enhance future product and service offerings from ABS Nautical Systems.”

ESRG brings more than 12 years of reliability and maintenance experience monitoring and analyzing US Navy ships. Their OstiaEdge® software is a leading shipboard real-time analytics application that addresses environmental, fuel, energy and maintenance issues at both the vessel and fleet level, as well as all levels of management (Business Intelligence). This information can improve operations by enabling automated data collection for a number of areas, including environmental compliance reporting energy management, maintenance and monitoring.

“We are pleased about working together and the level of service we can bring to the industry”, said Ken Krooner, President, ESRG. “ABS and ESRG can assist the industry in addressing environmental issues much more effectively. This is a powerful data management partnership that can help operators resolve these issues faster, leading to fewer non-compliance events, lower energy and fuel consumption, less downtime and lower maintenance costs”.

“The integration of NS5 Enterprise and OstiaEdge® will bridge fleet management with the maintenance and operational management aspects of vessels and offshore units,” Hughey said. “This will provide owners and operators the ability to make decisions with data and analysis they can trust. The partnership brings tremendous opportunity for marine and offshore operators to better manage key fleet data and improve upon the larger classification experience.”
