BASS Software is a leading provider of maritime software solutions for shipping and the offshore industry.

Dedicated to streamlining maritime operations, we provide a complete solution that manages physical assets, operational processes, and human resources within one software suite.

Our integrated but modular marine software applications enable shipping companies to improve operational efficiency. The platform delivers accurate data between the vessel and office to avoid dependence on manual synchronisation between both sites and enables ships and office to make reactive and informed decisions.

Since its founding in 1997, BASS Software has harnessed data and technology to develop world-class solutions for the global maritime industry. To date, over 2,000 vessels around the world are using BASS Software’s industry-proven solutions to significantly improve their operational efficiency and productivity.

Summary of the BASSnet™ Fleet Management software benefits

The value that ship owners, managers, and crew can derive from BASSnet’s Fleet Management Systems includes the benefits of one comprehensive suite; this means effective third-party integration, and complete maintenance, operational, safety and financial management. Users can also capitalise on fleet data with invaluable analytics and overview features. BASSnet’s use of a single database protects data integrity and consistency, and this data can then be extracted with handy reporting tools that cater to a complex regulatory environment.

The system is also notably Cloud-friendly, with value-added support services. For executives on-the-go, we also have convenient mobile and web applications. BASSnet is indeed a ‘future-proof’ solution from a reputable, established provider.

Integrated software for the maritime industry

BASS’s suite of offerings allows shipping companies to first implement the solution that meets their immediate needs, before adding other modules as their business evolves for a complete vessel management experience, all without having to worry about expensive or complicated compatibility issues.

BASS seamlessly integrates workflows between the different tasks undertaken when operating a vessel, allowing users to visualise and manage their fleet with a single solution.

Maritime software for maintenance and materials needs

With BASS’s comprehensive features, users will be able to manage and plan fleet maintenance with out of schedule corrective maintenance and condition monitoring of equipment.

Following the inspection of equipment, users can effectively manage the global inventory of spare parts with material forecasting and inventory optimisation, with the ability to also manage and control the purchasing flow of materials with end to end shipment visibility via an effective and simplified processes.

Key performance indicators (KPIs) and monitoring fleet performance

BASS Software enables users to capitalise on fleet data with invaluable analytics to create handy reports and monitor fleet performance. Vessel managers can take control of their ship operations while higher management can enjoy a transparent overview of fleet performance, with alerts to notify them of critical issues that require their attention.

With built-in reports generation, users can also reduce the added costs, complexity, and security risks of running multiple solutions with a platform that scales from individual vessels to the organisation as a whole.

Crew management and payroll system (HRM)

Using the Human Resource Manager (HRM) module, users can efficiently optimise crew management and operational processes. The module allows ship operators to shortlist and select the right seafarers according to vessel requirements while managing crew based on their expertise.

A payroll system is included to simplify and automate the creation of payroll by utilising a crew planning system to retrieve personal and service data.

Robust and scalable management software

BASSnet Fleet Management Systems is developed on Microsoft.NET, a stable, future-proof solution. The stability of .NET is especially important in shipping, where shipboard IT environments are vulnerable to a broad range of usage scenarios and various technological standards. Competency levels vary from user to user and crews change frequently, so it is vital to have a robust, easy-to-use and stable system in place.
