Germany: Reederei Claus-Peter Offen Chooses ABS Nautical Systems
Recently, ABS Nautical Systems announced that implementation of its NS5 Enterprise software suite has begun on Reederei Claus-Peter Offen’s fleet of container vessels. Based in Hamburg and one of the world’s largest suppliers of modern container tonnage, the company will be utilizing three modules from ABS Nautical Systems’ integrated software solution.
Reederei Claus-Peter Offen purchased the Maintenance & Repair, Purchasing & Inventory and Voyage Management modules for its fleet of 103 vessels. These modules provide the tools to track maintenance expenses, upcoming drydocks and repairs, inventory replacement needs, fuel consumption and cargo operations across their entire fleet.
“We needed technology that offered both a centralized and standardized solution, that was user friendly,” says Lutz Miesen, Project Engineer for Reederei Claus-Peter Offen. “Our engineers and crew wanted a one-for-all solution for their day-to-day workloads and ABS Nautical Systems’ software suite has provided that.”
Reederei Claus-Peter Offen initially installed the software on four of its vessels to make sure they achieved maximum functionality ahead of implementation on the remainder of their fleet, which is scheduled for completion in the next 24 months. ABS Nautical Systems is assisting their team with this process.
“Working closely with our clients during the initial stages of the software implementation allows them the ability to fine tune the system for their specific operations,” says Karen Hughey, President and COO of ABS Nautical Systems. “Through this process, Reederei Claus-Peter Offen was able to customize the software to meet their needs and they are now our largest client in Germany.”
