September 6, 2018

Bluetracker Software Provides Greater Flexibility and Reliability of Data Quality, KPI and Benchmarking Functionalities and Reporting

Navis, the leading provider of maritime software solutions for cargo operations and vessel performance, today announced at SMM 2018 that Hamburg-based Zeaborn Ship Management, a global technical ship management company, will utilize the web-based fleet performance solution Bluetracker by Navis.

Zeaborn Ship Management is a newly formed brand uniting long-standing ship management companies E.R. Schiffahrt and Rickmers Shipmanagement. The company operates a combined fleet of more than 150 vessels focusing on container ships, bulk carriers and multipurpose vessels of all sizes. The use of Bluetracker will enable the technical ship management specialist to closely monitor and conduct KPI-based analyses on fleet energy efficiency performance to optimize the commercial potential of vessels under management. In addition, the software will help manage environmental compliance related to EU MRV and IMO DCS regulations and provide technical infrastructure for transparent shareholder reporting.

With the cloud-based analysis platform Bluetracker, Zeaborn Ship Management has full access to the entire scope of all core performance and emission compliance modules. Further, the benefit of aggregating reported and measured vessel data from Bluetracker as well as existing systems provides additional value to the customer by merging inhomogeneous fleets equipped with various systems onboard.

In addition to fulfilling compliance standards and ensuring data quality, Bluetracker supports the conversion of operational data into valuable information with the help of automatic KPI generation and benchmark calculations.

“The Bluetracker analysis platform helps improve the transparency of ship performance,” said Guy Rey-Herme, President of XVELA and Head of the Maritime Solutions at Navis. "With our solution, we can offer our customers facilitated data-based decisions and create more transparency in reporting.”
