The application modules are adapted to the individual needs of different departments within the shipping company and automatically exchange data with each other make sure that workflows are streamlined and relevant information is available. Hanseaticsoft has also established a dedicated team of data specialists to manage migration from other software systems, to transfer existing information to CFM.

Iason Hellenic Shipping will additionally be using the CFM PowerBI Integration, which allows data to be pooled from multiple CFM modules as well as external sources, analysed in a central place and extracted for management reporting.

“Our company is offering best-in-class ship management, and the software we are using should reflect this,” said Sakis Vareltzis, Chief Operating Officer at Iason Hellenic Shipping.

To enhance our employees’ flexibility and to enable a deeper analysis of our processes, we also wanted a system that was offering mobile apps and Power BI capabilities.”

“Cloud Fleet Manager met all these specifications and additionally convinced us with its modern and intuitive design and excellent customer support.”
