Maersk Supply Service makes digitalisation move with Hanseaticsoft crewing solution

Maersk Supply Service makes digitalisation move with Hanseaticsoft crewing solution
Maersk Supply Service (MSS), a unit of AP Moller-Maersk Group, has implemented the ship management system Cloud Fleet Manager from software provider Hanseaticsoft.

MSS can now use the Cloud Crewing module of the web-based system for vessels and shore-bases to manage their crew and handle all crew-related tasks.

“We selected Cloud Fleet Manager from Hanseaticsoft as our new Crew Management system. It combines a standard platform with comprehensive functionality with a high degree of usability, enabling us to deploy new features at a faster pace,” said Kevin Bro Beier, head of crewing at MSS.

“Working closely with Hanseaticsoft’s dedicated team of professionals has contributed to a fast and straightforward implementation, and we have gained an increase in user satisfaction and efficiency,” he added.

One highlight of the software is the variety of interfaces (APIs) that can be used to import and export data from and to Cloud Fleet Manager. Another benefit is the ability to share data from Cloud Crewing with external providers, especially as the extensive APIs of the payroll module are primarily used to further utilise information for additional calculations and analytics using data warehouse (DWH) and Power BI.

MSS said it can now perform its crew and vessel management related tasks under one central system with Cloud Crewing rather than multiple different solutions, bringing about savings on time, cost and resources.

Cloud Crewing is also used to manage general tasks such as the handling of crew’s activity-based payroll, the management of crew particulars, dynamic crew change management and to check compliance of documents.

In addition, MSS is using Cloud Crewing’s Cashbox module to handle all cash on board, the Bonded Store to register and administrate all transactions from the on-board shop as well as the Crew Portal – enabling the crew to autonomously access and manage their personal data or documents and to access company news and shared data such as presentations or training schedules.
