ShipServ Signs Partnership with Hanseaticsoft
ShipServ, a maritime e-procurement platform, has announced it has signed an agreement with Hanseaticsoft GmbH, a maritime cloud-based software solution providers.
The agreement is in line with ShipServ’s strategy to develop relationships with advanced technology partners, where the ShipServ TradeNet platform is seamlessly integrated into enterprise-wide systems, which optimize the management of an entire fleet, improving operational performance and efficiencies, as well as driving down costs and increasing profitability.
Hanseaticsoft’s Cloud Fleet Manager (CFM) software is an interactive and web-based ship management platform that enables shipowners and operators to manage all processes within the day-to-day operations of a fleet. This includes the execution of inspections and audits, crew management, fleet scheduling, vessel chartering, risk assessment, maintenance and purchasing. The ShipServ TradeNet platform has been integrated and pre-installed into Hanseaticsoft’s CFM as the purchasing module and can be accessed simply at the ‘tick of a box’.
Shipowners and operators can also benefit from the ability to use ShipServ’s tools and solutions to analyse the performance of their suppliers, as well as spending patterns and trends, which can be benchmarked against other buyers within the market. This is in line with the demand to be able to unlock value from data and create actionable intelligence, which enables procurement decision-makers to deliver against their strategy of consolidating and optimizing their supplier base. This also moves more spend under contract and embraces category management to take a more strategic approach to how procurement resources and processes are organised, concentrating on specific areas of spend. By creating transparency and visibility of where, and on what buyers are spending, significant OPEX savings can be made and supply chain performance can be enhanced.
