Our Recent Initiatives

Both MESPAS and NETVISION constantly strive to meet the needs of ship managers and provide them with best-of-breed software in their specialist areas. Now MESPAS, the Zurich-based leading technical software specialist, is joining forces with NETVISION, the Singapore-based leading provider of maritime crewing software, to provide something special: a best-of-breed, complete software package. A mature software package that not only offers all the functions of a technical ship management and crewing system, but also offers the deep functionality that comes from years of development and collaboration with users. This means that ship managers can now source a complete, leading-edge package of professional technical ship management functions from one hand. These functions have been tried and tested over many years in collaboration with users and are already established systems in many hundreds of vessels.

NETVISION’s Compas software is a state-of-the-art crew managing system that enables the management of all aspects of a crew’s activities: crew planning, crew management, crew database, training, assessment, payroll, work and rest hours reporting, payroll, travel plans and much more.

MESPAS’s TSM is a state-of-the-art technical ship management software encompassing maintenance, procurement, QHSE, operations and now crewing. Like MESPAS, the NETVISION concept is based on cloud computing and is therefore an ideal match. Using a master database in the cloud ensures one unique set of data across fleets. Consistency is a given, time is saved, costs are reduced and business performance improved.

With its integrated software solution MESPAS and NETVISION now offer a complete package, serving all the requirements of a technical ship manager. This is smart data at its very best, improving business performance for all users.

Singapore-based MSI Ship Management has completed the roll-out of MESPAS TSM.

“Crews prefer a simple and easy-to-use software for their daily work. [...] This was a major factor during the evaluation of a new system, MESPAS fulfils this requirement.” stated Captain Sanjay Ramnathan, managing director of MSI Ship Management in the project review meeting in August.

The positive attitude of the crews, the close collaboration between MSI office staff and the MESPAS project team resulted in an unrivalled performance during the software implementation. Within only three months, all machinery data (including spare parts) had been added and MESPAS went live on MSI’s entire fleet of 44 ships.

Connect News

Good news for the maritime industry: MESPAS has launched an entirely new e-trading platform: MESPAS Connect links ship managers and maritime suppliers together for a more efficient supply chain. The platform also provides a clear solution to the well-known lack of structured data in maritime procurement.

Various functionalities for supplier sourcing, rating and global search will be available to ship managers. The platform can be integrated in to any purchase software via standard interface. Offer requests and orders are transferred to a selected supplier without manual interference. Suppliers not only submit offers and receive orders, management tools also assist them in analysing their business or in assigning cases to account managers. Via a state-of-the-art API interface, MESPAS Connect is consistently plugged-in to the suppliers’ inhouse software. This is enabled by the MESPAS global master database. All parties work with the same structured data of 60’000 machinery types and millions of spare parts.

MESPAS Connect – The Maritime Platform is available online via connect.mespas.com.

We proudly notice that our new product Vessel Performance Analytics finds its way to editorials in scientific journals. Would you like to combine MRV with other valuable information about the performance of your vessels, find anomalies in fuel consumption information or check and report the influence of environmental factors to your charterers? Then have a closer look at the article or contact us anytime.



The European Union has defined a new regulation 2015/757 for the shipping industry; known as MRV regulation. MRV (Monitoring, Reporting, Verification) basically addresses greenhouse gas emission – targeting a transparent view on shipping industry emission in a first phase and obviously, a reduction in a second phase. The first MRV regulation implementation milestone, relevant for fleet-managers and fleet-owners, is scheduled for August 2017 already.

Furthermore, as of beginning 2019, the IMO will require MRV like reporting of greenhouse gas emissions globally. Thus, these initiatives are relevant for you, no matter where your vessels are operated.

Here is the good news: MESPAS decided to cover both regulations completely. Therefore, no need for you to validate 3rd party solutions; your vessel crews and office staff will be able to cover the new regulatory requirements with the product they are already familiar with, MESPAS PAM.

Launch of the new functionality is planned for April 2017. Further details about functionality, associated services and pricing will be unveiled soon. Like to learn more? Don’t hesitate to contact us.

Last weekend we successfully migrated to brand new ICT infrastructure – secure, offering leading edge failover concepts and providing further optimized application performance. We have announced a maximum downtime of 48 hours during the weekend, but we were back online with our software products far ahead of schedule, already on Saturday evening.

Thanks to all that have made this great success possible; to our ICT operations team, to the testers in Switzerland, Americas and Asia, and in particular a great 'thank you!' to our customers, for their patience and trust.

Let us apologize again for inconveniences this planned service interruption might have caused to you.
