Oslo, Norway 25 February 2011 – BASS Software Ltd., a leading global provider of fleet management systems, reached a deal with Swiss ABCmaritime to install its entire BASSnet™ 2.7 software suite on a fleet of 40 vessels as it aims to expand its presence in Europe.
“BASSnet will help us optimize our processes, strengthen our cost control, enhance and expand our activities, consolidate our company and branch offices and much more,” said Daniel Tanner, Coordinator & Leader of this project at ABCmaritime.
