Maritime software provider BASS has announced the launch of the BASSnet Web Portal, designed to provide web-based access to shipping companies looking to monitor their fleet’s pending approvals, alerts, compliance issues, discussions and KPIs anytime and anywhere, all from the convenience of a web browser.
“Mobility is the byword for software solutions in a globalised industry. Companies are managing fleets in multiple locations worldwide, with needs and issues that call for personalised, immediate action,” said Per Steinar Upsaker, CEO and managing director of BASS.
“With BASSnet Web Portal, we believe we have delivered a compact and reliable system for customers to access useful monitoring and updating features on-the-go. With this portal, customers will save time and increase fleet productivity as they can immediately monitor their vessels from a distance on a computer or mobile device as long as they have access to the Internet.”
The Portal’s useful Home function provides a central access point with an overview of fleet status and performance. With the My Approvals feature, the user can view pending approvals for procurement items and approve risk assessments, as well as issue and reissue work permits.
My Notifications and My KPIs highlight outstanding tasks and fleet performance data, and the Compliance feature allows for monitoring of non-compliance issues that might arise, including certificates that are overdue or coming due and work and rest hours. In addition, the My Discussions feature allows for instant interaction with BASSnet messages (for discussion-enabled modules).
With Maintenance & Projects, the user can monitor re-planned jobs, corrective jobs, critical jobs coming due, critical spare inventory, overdue critical jobs and ongoing projects, and view KPI charts on breakdown and maintenance of equipment.
Safety & Quality manages action items related to safety events, audits, inspections and vetting’s, with KPI charts generated based on data from the BASSnet SAFIR module. The Environment feature provides an overview of the environmental impact caused by various gases emitted by vessels.
The Operations feature generates KPI charts on vessel performance and position, work & rest hours and certificate status, while invoices and requisitions can be generated using the Procurement feature. In addition, the Human Resource feature allows users to manage vessel crew listings and directly access BASSnet HR Manager to make crew sign on/sign off changes.
“The BASSnet Web Portal has been optimised for quick navigation and synchronicity by utilising real-time data taken directly from BASSnet Fleet Management Systems,” said Martin Bjoernebye, BASS’s VP of research and development.
“This makes the portal highly up-to-date and responsive. Customers will gain considerable efficiency from optimising the borderless, instant availability of fleet data.”
