The Wallem Group has chosen BASSnet Fleet Management Systems, as a core backbone for its vision to be the leading provider of technology-driven maritime solutions and transform customers experience.

BASS, the provider of maritime software solutions, is pleased that Wallem has selected the complete suite of integrated software to manage the company's entire fleet.

The signing of Wallem marks a key milestone for BASS, signaling a wider move to complete enterprise solutions in the maritime industry as a means to effectively standardize ship processes. Wallem has chosen to use BASSnet as a total solution for maintenance, safety, operational and financial management, among others, on a fleet-wide basis. The integrated nature, functionality and technological strategy of BASSnet were said to be of pivotal importance in Wallem’s decision to sign with BASS.

Frank Coles (pictured), CEO of Wallem Group said: “Having run several maritime software companies and considering the complexities of operations, compliance and the regulatory environment, I was keen to not reinvent the wheel. We have chosen to install a cloud based COTS solution, without customisation. Exactly how digitalisation is supposed to be done.  We are going to defy the myth that ship operations and management needs to be different, or somehow special. It does not need all the disparate or heavily customized homegrown systems.  This is the stuff of myths created by a lack of understanding and/or old fashioned operational beliefs and techniques.”

“BASSnet Fleet Management Systems is a complete solution that removes the reliance on multiple vendors for piecemeal software,” said Per Steinar Upsaker, CEO and MD of BASS. “We have prioritised a well-thought-out strategy that is forward-looking, comprehensive and puts BASSnet in a unique position. This includes the incredible convenience and security of managing an entire fleet using a single database on a state of the art platform.”
