Why digitalize maritime fleet management

A fleet management software system is built to create and manage an overview of all fleet and asset information between the vessels and the main office. Employees in the office have one type of tasks such as procurement and hiring, whereas the ship’s staff, on the other hand, have other functions such as reporting and HSQE.

Regardless of the size of the fleet, it is important that all aspects of the business can effectively communicate with each other in order to make everything run as efficiently and seamlessly as possible, even though some are onshore and others are offshore.

Tasks vary from the engine room to the head office, but it is important that everyone collects their information in one place and follows the same processes.
Centralized knowledge makes all tasks easier and provides more effective results.

Coordination in relation to asset maintenance and spare parts is key. The superintendent needs a certain part at a specific time in order to do his job. The purchaser needs to make this happen by buying the part from the most attractive supplier and have the parts delivered at the right harbor in time. It is all a question of bringing everything together to create synergy. And this is where centralizing and sharing data is not only important, but essential to ensure a cost-effective and efficient process.
