OSLO, NORWAY; 14th April 2017: Hot on the heels of signings with other reputable clients, BASS, the leading provider of maritime software solutions, is pleased to announce a deal reached with PT. Usda Seroja Jaya (“Usda”).
After a rigorous selection process, top Indonesian Shipping and Shipyard company, PT. Usda Seroja Jaya, decided to implement BASSnet™ in its office to support its fleet of 70 tugs and barges and shipyard operations.
“The selection of the BASSnet software is a strategic decision for Usda as we were looking to adopt a comprehensive system with existing proven best practices and workflows”, says Mr. Joseph Endi, Director at Usda. He further explains, “We were impressed by the modular structure of the BASSnet software suite, where modules covering different areas of operations can be added on at any time and are centrally integrated, ensuring process visibility and efficiency in supporting our operations across the organization.”
Currently, Usda has chosen to implement the BASSnet™ Maintenance, Procurement, Operations and Financials modules.
BASSnet™ Maintenance will effectively assist Usda in planning and executing all maintenance aspects of their fleet by efficiently managing their global stock of spare parts, maintenance scheduling and work planning. In addition, the seamless integration with the BASSnet™ Procurement module will allow for highly effective control in managing their entire purchasing flow while concurrently responding to the individual needs of each ship.
With BASSnet™ Operations, Usda will see a total solution to plan and track voyage and port operations, maintain the navigation and engine logs electronically and have effective organization of all certificates that are imperative for their vessels’ operations.
The web-based BASSnet™ Financials system completes the picture with the ability to centrally track all financial accounting data. The system handles multiple vessels, suppliers & customers, companies and currency transactions and provides up-to-date and integrated financial data to benefit timely and accurate operational decisions.
The signing of Usda contributes significantly to BASS’ presence in the Asia-Pacific market. “We are proud that Usda has chosen to become our latest Indonesian customer. This deal is a testimonial to our drive for growth in this important part of the region,” says Chris Long, BASS’ Senior Regional Sales Manager (Asia Pacific).
