Maritime software company BASS starts the fourth quarter by clinching a fleet-wide system upgrade for the subsidiary of the K-Line group Taiyo Nippon Kisen Co., Ltd (TNKC). With this upgrade, 107 TNKC vessels will operate on the BASSnet 2.8 Fleet Management System to enhance its efficiency gains.

The ship management company has been operating on BASSnet 2.0 since 2001. TNKC has been enjoying the benefits of optimizing its shipping operations with BASSnet Fleet Management Systems for a full 12 years. These include the pioneering version of BASSnet SAFIR, a module that streamlines and automates safety information reporting, and BASSnet 2.0, which features multi-level information management solutions such as Easy Info.

Some 79 TNKC vessels being upgraded are from its base in Kobe, Japan and another 28 ships are from the company’s Manila office.

In place of the legacy Easy Info application, TNKC will be equipped with the BASSnet Operations and BASSnet Document Manager modules. BASSnet Operations streamlines essential tasks like certificate tracking, voyage management, location management and maintaining electronic logs, among other things. BASSnet Document Manager is a powerful document and content management solution that serves the entire domain of ship/shore operations.

The modules that will be upgraded are the well-received BASSnet Maintenance, BASSnet Procurement and BASSnet SAFIR. The BASSnet Maintenance enables users to plan and execute the maintenance of their fleet and manage their global stock of spare parts efficiently. BASSnet Procurement streamlines purchasing activities and optimizes the purchasing cycle, providing access to critical business information for outstanding cost control. BASSnet SAFIR is designed for the reporting and analysis of events arising from accidents and hazards that affect ship operations.

TNKC will be maintaining the BASSnet Accounting and BASSnet CrewNet for now.

Among the more prominent concerns that picked BASS recently are Norway’s OSM Ship Management, Malaysian integrated maritime service provider Sealink and French luxury liner Compagnie du Ponant. These operations join names like Singapore-owned Neptune Orient Lines, MSI Ship Management Pte Ltd, Sandigan Ship Services of the Philippines, South African shipping concern Grindrod Limited and Malaysia’s Jasa Merin, to name a few.
