Jan 09 2020

Hanseaticsoft, a leading provider of maritime software ended 2019 on a high by announcing a 41% increase in customers, adding 19 new shipping companies to their global client base, including eight in Singapore, Philippines, India and China.

A further 352 vessels are now using the company’s innovative Cloud Fleet Manager (CFM) that enables companies to streamline business and management processes to achieve greater efficiencies and profitability. In total over 1,500 vessels around the world are now managed using CFM.


Last year was also significant as Hanseaticsoft celebrated 10 years in business. Plus the company’s first office in Asia that opened in Singapore in mid-2018, celebrated its first full year in business reporting strong growth with new clients added across the region and several more in the pipeline.


Alexander Buchmann, Managing Director of Hanseaticsoft GmbH says, “We’re delighted to be finishing our tenth year by announcing a considerable increase in our client numbers, including success in Asia which is one of our key focuses going forward.


“We started as a small software company in Hamburg and have evolved into an established global provider of cloud-based software for the maritime industry with three overseas offices and over 60 employees. The shipping industry has also evolved during this period and is increasingly recognising the benefits of digitalisation. 


“More companies now have access to the internet at sea, which means they can take advantage of cloud-based solutions and mobile apps on board that are transforming how they operate. We’re looking forward to our next ten years and leading the way with our pioneering software solutions.”


Cloud Fleet Manager is improving collaboration between teams on shore and at sea and creating a connected workplace culture that supports strategic business goals. Hanseaticsoft say that 25% of daily working time can be saved by using Cloud Fleet Manager which would be otherwise wasted requesting, looking for and validating data.


Cloud Fleet Manager is web-based and can be used without any installation. It centralises all information and makes insights available for all employees as well as crews at sea. The software suite comprises more than 25 applications including; Purchase, Inspections & AuditsSchedule & AgentsCrewingCharterRisk Assessment, and Maintenance


The company is currently working on a new module for 2020 to facilitate the administration and structuring of fleet data. A new mobile app called Crew Portal will also be launched this year. Using the new app seafarers will be able to autonomously access and manage their documents, giving them full transparency of their data and enhancing independence.
