Wärtsilä integrates with MESPAS maritime e-trading platform

Finnish technology company Wärtsilä has integrated with Swiss maritime e-trading platform MESPAS Connect for “faster, easier and more efficient” maritime procurement.

The web-based trading platform MESPAS Connect brings ship managers and maritime suppliers together in one online marketplace.

Now Wärtsilä, one of the world’s largest suppliers to the maritime industry, is joining MESPAS Connect. Wärtsilä offers an extensive portfolio of integrated products and solutions for all shipping segments. With the integration of Wärtsilä to MESPAS, there is now a fully automated data flow between the two software systems.

For ship managers using MESPAS Connect the benefits are said to be huge — they receive immediate electronic offers from Wärtsilä with clear price indications. Clients no longer have to request offers by email or telephone, tapping in individual product numbers and risking human error. The MESPAS system does it all automatically.

With the click of a button ship managers can request offers, place orders, receive invoices and approve payments. Wärtsilä can make offers, accept orders and send invoices so that the whole process becomes faster, more streamlined, easy to use and efficient.

Built up over many years, MESPAS contains the technical details of the millions of pieces and machinery required on a ship. This dataset eliminates the necessity for typing in information, avoiding errors and reducing workload.

Wärtsilä leads the industry in its journey towards a decarbonised and sustainable future. With an extensive portfolio of products, integrated systems and lifecycle solutions, Wärtsilä delivers reliability, safety and environmental performance to enhance the business of its customers.

Together, MESPAS and Wärtsilä want to help their users improve their business operations, resulting in faster, more efficient processes and reduced administrative workload.
