BASSnet Projects Enables Process Efficiency Across the Fleet
More maritime industry leaders are seeing the benefits of selecting BASSnet to manage their dry-docking. By using BASSnet to integrate dry-docking activities into maintenance and procurement processes, shipping companies can efficiently streamline operations, minimise downtime, control costs, and ensure the seaworthiness and reliability of their vessels.

Crew can easily contribute to the entire dry-docking process from creating the initial input and drafts of the dry-docking specifications onboard, all the way through to the actual dry-docking at the yard and back to the ship again. 

When sailing, crew have the advantage of full visualization in the onboard BASSnet software of the work done during dry-docking. Significantly, ship staff can consult and display dry-docking history onboard during class inspections, vetting inspections, and so on. 

In addition:

  • BASSnet’s integrated software ties together dry-docking with maintenance and procurement planning, inventory management, vendor management, budgeting and cost control, and data management and analysis, and enables financial control.
  • Vessel Managers can fully control project planning, preparation and execution fleet-wide.
  • Users can efficiently use standard templates or copy previous specs.
  • BASSnet provides a comprehensive database for analysis and business improvement. 

These benefits and more make the BASSnet dry-docking software a highly attractive option to leading shipping companies. With such strong innovations to meet customer needs, BASS Software’s rich customer community is set to expand to even greater heights in 2024.
