Maersk Line pilots DNV GL's ShipManager software
Maersk Line has begun the implementation of DNV GL's ShipManager software, testing it on five vessels. The installation of ShipManager on their fleet of 250 vessels is ships for next year, according to the software company.
DNV GL says its ShipManager maritime software supports the management of vessels and fleets in all technical, commercial and compliance aspects.
"The implementation of ShipManager on the pilot vessels is a major milestone in the project," says Are Føllesdal Tjønn, managing director at DNV GL Software. "We have a full dedicated team working with Maersk Line on the implementation. All the configurations and settings have been agreed upon," he says.
DNV GL said Maersk chose its system after reviewing the product of 26 other ship management software vendors, aiming for increased process efficiency and improved access to and analysis of information.
"The feedback we have received so far from Ebba Maersk, a 15,500-TEU container ship, has been very positive," says Sebastiaan Van den Wijngaert, senior project manager at Maersk Line IT. "The application is performing well, and the users have praised the application for its user-friendliness and the self-explanatory nature of the modules."
Maersk Line will be using six integrated ShipManager modules: Technical, Procurement, Project, Crewing, QHSE and Analyzer, according to DNV GL.
"ShipManager will replace nine applications we use currently with one integrated, easier to learn, user-friendly and technically up-to-date application," says Van den Wijngaert. "This will make the on-boarding of new people a lot easier."
