Our Recent Initiatives

Abacus Ship Management Limited Hong Kong have recently installed MESPAS maritime software in their fleet of 13 ships. They join the many hundreds of ships all over the world using the MESPAS platform to integrate their processes from ship to shore to supplier. A new video from MESPAS demonstrates their unique concept.

Abacus signed the contract with MESPAS in January this year, in February MESPAS Technical Ship Management software (TSM) was installed and by the end of March their ships were up and running. Within a little more than 2 months the implementation was complete. This was achieved during the rapid spread of the Corona Virus so that implementation and training were all carried out remotely. It was all possible thanks to the flexibility of the Abacus staff and online availability of the MESPAS system and data via its unique database in the cloud. This database contains the technical details of the millions of pieces of machinery required on a ship. The unique dataset was mapped to all sister vessels in the Abacus fleet so that each vessel received ship specific data and could start working immediately. Data management is made easy, eliminating the necessity for typing in information, avoiding errors and reducing workload.

Even now, as lockdowns continue all over the world, Abacus employs in various locations around the globe, be it on a vessel or working from a home office, can continue working with the MESPAS system. All staff and vessels have access to the same identical information.

Rajan Gupta, Managing Director at Abacus, praised MESPAS’s speed of implementation and unique data management solution: “We are excited about working with MESPAS. Their project managers were highly competent and efficient. On one single platform we can now exchange information for maintenance, QHSE, operations and procurement amongst all our vessels and offices. The preventive maintenance and QHSE modules from MESPAS mean that are team know exactly which tasks need carrying out on our ships and are always up to date”.

MESPAS recently released a new video. In under 3 minutes it describes the advantages of their unique software. Watch it here.

MESPAS constantly helps shipping companies to improve their business processes, resulting in better performance and decreased costs. Abacus is the latest company to rely on their unique cloud-based software for data sharing and management.

MESPAS availability during current COVID-19 situation

COVID-19 has developed into a global pandemic. Our major goal is to keep the MESPAS Community safe and healthy. Our teams in Switzerland, Poland and Singapore are working from home and we have reduced the physical presence in our offices in these regions to an absolute minimum.

All our staff remains at the disposal of our customers. We can still be contacted via normal office telephone numbers and email addresses. Our team ensures the proper functionality of the MESPAS maritime software solution, allowing our customers to access their data from home too. The development of new software features will also go ahead.

The MESPAS team wishes everybody to stay healthy.

MESPAS recently took an active part at IMPA Greece. This procurement forum took place in Athens on the 17th September 2019.

Now in its 3rd year, the IMPA Procurement Forum has established itself as a highly valued event dedicated to the current trends and issues facing marine procurement professionals. Purchasers and technical department personnel come together to find out about the latest industry developments and exchange ideas.

Dominic Seiler, Sales and Marketing Director at MESPAS, was one of the keynote speakers at IMPA. He gave a presentation on the subject of digital integration. He outlined how purchasers and suppliers can save valuable time and money by using cloud-based procurement software. Purchasers can connect directly with suppliers over the MESPAS electronic trading platform. They receive offers, place orders and accept invoices automatically, at the click of a button. Suppliers can add prices and ensure that, as soon as a quotation request is received, an offer is sent within a few seconds.

In outlining the huge benefits of electronic procurement systems, Dominic showed the way ahead in the area of maritime software solutions. MESPAS leads the way.

MAN Energy Solutions, one of the world’s largest maritime suppliers, has integrated with the electronic procurement platform MESPAS Connect, resulting in faster, easier and more efficient purchasing.

The web-based trading platform MESPAS Connect brings ship managers and maritime suppliers together in one online marketplace. Now MAN Energy Solutions, one of the world’s leading suppliers to the maritime industry, is joining Connect.

With the integration of MAN Energy Solutions to MESPAS Connect there is now a fully automated data flow between the two software systems. For ship managers using MESPAS Connect the benefits are huge: they receive immediate electronic offers from MAN with clear price indications and data that is always correct. Gone are the days of requesting offers by email or telephone, tapping in individual product numbers and human error. The MESPAS system does it all automatically.

With the click of a button ship managers can request offers, place orders, receive invoices and approve payments. MAN can make offers, accept orders and send invoices. All in a matter of seconds.

This is modern procurement at its best. The whole process becomes faster, more streamlined, easy to use and efficient. With the integration of MAN, MESPAS Connect proves itself to be the go-to electronic platform for procurement in shipping. Fast, easy and efficient.

MESPAS is the only maritime software supplier to work with a master database in the cloud. Built up over many years, it contains the technical details of the millions of pieces and machinery required on a ship. This unique dataset eliminates the necessity for typing in information, avoiding errors and reducing workload. It is at the heart of both MESPAS Connect and its Technical Ship Management (TSM).

MESPAS constantly helps its users to improve their business processes, resulting in better performance and decreased costs.
