Wallem to implement BASSnet system
(Posted on 29/04/19)
As a core backbone for their vision to be the leading provider of technology-driven maritime solutions and transform customers experience the Wallem Group has chosen BASSnet Fleet Management Systems. BASS, the leading provider of maritime software solutions, is pleased that Wallem has selected the complete suite of integrated software to manage their entire fleet.
The signing of Wallem marks a key milestone for BASS, signaling a wider move to complete enterprise solutions in the maritime industry as a means to effectively standardize ship processes. Wallem has chosen to use BASSnet as a total solution for maintenance, safety, operational and financial management, among others, on a fleet-wide basis. The integrated nature, superior functionality and clear technological strategy of BASSnet were of pivotal importance in Wallem’s decision to sign with BASS.
BASS, founded in 1997 with Norwegian heritage, is a leading global provider of fleet management software for ship owners and ship managers, as well as operators of rigs, FPSOs, and other offshore units.
Frank Coles, CEO of Wallem Group said, “Having run several maritime software companies and considering the complexities of operations, compliance and the regulatory environment, I was keen to not reinvent the wheel.” Coles added, “We have chosen to install a cloud based COTS solution, without customization. Exactly how digitalisation is supposed to be done. We are going to defy the myth that ship operations and management needs to be different, or somehow special. It does not need all the disparate or heavily customized homegrown systems. This is the stuff of myths created by a lack of understanding and/or old fashioned operational beliefs and techniques.”
Coles concluded, “In my view, offering transparency, analytics and business intelligence is the way forward for high-performance fleet management, and implementing a complete enterprise solution from BASSnet will allow us to integrate the power of big data with our business processes. We are going to walk the talk.”
“BASSnet Fleet Management Systems is a complete solution that removes the reliance on multiple vendors for piecemeal software,” noted Per Steinar Upsaker, CEO and Managing Director of BASS. “We have prioritized a well-thought-out strategy that is forward-looking, comprehensive and puts BASSnet in a unique position. This includes the incredible convenience and security of managing an entire fleet using a single database on a state of the art platform.”
Upsaker continued, “BASSnet’s modular features are augmented by progressive and responsive web applications and mobile apps, and we have made data collection and analysis a priority, providing an invaluable bird’s eye view of fleet performance and areas for improvement. Data-driven systems mean higher transparency and visibility,” he added. “This makes BASSnet the ideal one-stop solution to streamline and increase fleet efficiency, asset management, and safety.”
The Wallem Group is a leading provider of technology driven maritime solutions, offering services supporting the complete lifecycle of a vessel from newbuilding supervision to end-of-life recycling guidance. Wallem’s extensive portfolio includes asset management, crewing, training, ship management, safety and compliance management and agency services.
