Ship Suppliers Launch Victualling Software

Press Release
Monday, September 17, 2012

Wrist Ship Supply launch 'Xena', to streamline the purchasing of consumable ship supplies, optimising vessel economy & improving health at sea.

The Xena software is a menu-planning tool and electronic cookbook which provides ship owners with inventory control, reducing waste and enabling transparency to ensure they stay within nutritional guidelines. Recipes in this programme 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. While 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, 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. 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.”
