Hamburg: Shipping companies are poor in general at information management, says one German IT firm in today’s Maritime CEO interview.
Alexander Buchmann, ceo of Hamburg-based Hanseaticsoft, reckons information management takes about 25% of the daily working hours of an employee at a shipping company.
“There is no doubt that the shipping industry is still far behind in comparison to other industries,” Buchmann says.
A company with 100 employees can calculate about EUR1.5m can be saved a year through better data availability, Buchmann reckons.
His firm’s specifically tailored solution Cloud Fleet Manager is gaining traction as a way to handle this issue.
“With our solution for effective information management – the Cloud Fleet Manager- we want to become the standard for shipping companies all over the world. In Germany we’re already one of the leading software providers for shipping companies,” Buchmann says.
