BASSnet™ Fleet Management Systems

BASSnet fleet management systems are effective, future-proof, easy-to-use software tools meeting the demands for management of ships and rigs, today and tomorrow.

No one likes to install old software technology across their fleet and organisation only to discover that they chose an outdated solution and need to start another project to make necessary upgrades.

Unlike many competitors who have not even started the job
of redevelopment, BASS has invested substantially in software
development on Microsoft®.NET over the past five years,
creating a stable and future-proof technology platform.

BASS software is used globally on more than 850 vessels. We
have been dedicated to shipping software for a decade and
provide our customers with a global 24-7 support network.

A maritime software decision has long-term future implications
with respect to implementation, work processes, organisational
changes or training and onboard installation. BASS
bases its partnership on the strengths of its user community
and personal business relationships.

Shipping must emphasise environmental protection,
safe and reliable operations, cost savings, on-time delivery
and efficient organisation.


BASSnet fleet management systems are modular based,
allowing shipping companies to implement only what is necessary.
Other BASS modules can be added as your business evolves, giving your business transparency, pro-active alerts
and key management reports to monitor and safeguard performance

Structured implementation with competence and capacity is
of utmost importance to obtain returns on your software investment. BASS has added value for more than 80 global shipping
and offshore companies.

are the two most important steps for you to optimise your
company’s business performance.

with TMSA and mandatory rules and regulations, such as the
ISM code, ISPS, SOLAS, MARPOL, the STCW convention and
other rules and regulations applicable to your assets, operations
and personnel.

with existing and emerging maritime regulations. BASSnet fleet management systems are
future-proof. This means that no matter what happens within
