The system also offers functions for optimizing a ship's trim and consumptions.

The ship owner and manager can access all ship and consumption data via a web browser worldwide and at any time, meaning that sustainable strategies for optimizing performance can be developed. Bluetracker[express] is embedded in this structure and expands previous options to include manual reporting on board. Only a standardized and error-free data collection enables a reliable evaluation and analysis within fleets, ship classes or routes."
