Franman and Danish company Logimatic – a market leader in the global software and automation solutions – have entered into an agreement to establish the SERTICA Maritime Fleet Management System in the Greek market.

Costis J. Frangoulis, Founder & CEO of Franman commented: “We believe there is a real demand in Greek shipping for bespoke technical solutions. Every shipping company is different, and has different technical needs. SERTICA delivers real benefits for shipping companies, who have traditionally relied on stand-alone spreadsheets and legacy systems. We are excited about this partnership with Logimatic and the operational advantages it will bring to our clients.”

Hans Chr. Jensen, Head of Sales at Logimatic Solutions agrees and adds, “Franman has been in the market for many years and have already proven their value. We see this clearly when visiting maritime customers together. The expectations are therefore high, and I believe the Greek market is ready for a new modern fleet management solution like SERTICA.”

Τhe SERTICA software, already on over 1,300 vessels worldwide, is a technical management system that streamlines processes around maintenance, procurement, HSQE and vessel performance. It delivers optimized performance, increased internal transparency, improved communication and data management between a company’s main office and vessels.

Lars Riisberg, CEO at Logimatic Solutions is looking forward to see the new partnership flourish and tells, “I have been working with agents and resellers for more than 25 years all over the world, but never encountered this degree of professionalism. Franman is a respected and a well-known company with a team showing a high level of experience and dedication.”
