Carl Büttner Shipmanagement updates fleet management software

Bremen-based Carl Büttner Shipmanagement GmbH (CBS) has signed a contract with Logimatic to implement the SERTICA fleet management software system on board four tanker newbuildings, with the new vessels to use the Maintenance, Procurement and Safety (HSQE) modules to manage operations.

The software systems will be synchronised between shore and ship, so that both technical managers onboard the vessels and the staff in the main office will be working on the same system.

“We need a system that works both in the office and on board the vessels. It needs to be easy for our crew to use and shouldn’t be too complicated or academic,” explained Carsten Lehfeld, Project and Process Manager, CBS.

“I see SERTICA as a user-friendly system with the same screen layout on all screens, which makes it easy to change from maintenance to procurement and for new users to adapt.”

“I believe that Logimatic can bring us across the finish line, which, combined with the modern look and functionality of SERTICA, is also the reason for choosing Logimatic as a partner. Especially, our procurement department is eager to start using SERTICA and the many new modules to optimise our procurement flows.”

Implementation of the new application will include updates to the shipping company’s existing data structure, moving from the current ‘tree’ structure to a more modern set-up that will allow the company to derive more value from the data it generates.
