    Lloyd's Register invests in ship management software provider Hanseaticsoft

    Lloyd's Register has made a significant investment in Hamburg-based ship management software provider Hanseaticsoft. Hanseaticsoft provides modern fleet management software solutions to optimise workflows in shipping companies, offering new perspectives on processes and increasing business performance.

    Clients including NSC, Peter Döhle Schifffahrts KG, Rigel, Atlantic Lloyd and UASC already rely on the portfolio of solutions offered by Cloud Fleet Manager – a flexible and intuitive software suite to manage and organise your entire fleet, including inspections, crew management, purchasing and more.

    The investment underlines LR’s strategy to become a leader in supporting clients through the digital transformation of the marine and offshore industries, building a portfolio of investments and partnerships to tackle the challenges and opportunities of Industry 4.0.

    LR recently acquired the SEASAFE portfolio of software solutions, which specialises in real-time data management of on board loading and stability for vessels and offshore structures. Importantly, LR also brings expertise in maritime cyber security through its collaboration with QinetiQ, having recently launched its Cyber Secure programme, the next stream in its cyber and cyber physical suite of services. LR’s cyber security specialists work with clients to identify the specific risks posed to their people, assets and business, and co-create a tailored cyber security management plan.

    Recognising the need to create valuable insights for clients from the vast quantities of data created by these digital solutions, LR has formed a strategic partnership with QiO, a fast- growing Industry 4.0 company, whose data platform and cloud enabled solutions are transforming how big data analytics improve clients’ operational effectiveness and reduce risks.

    Hanseaticsoft will remain an independent open platform but will leverage LR’s global network to build its capability, with three new Hanseaticsoft sales offices in Athens, Copenhagen and Singapore planned for 2017, and at least five other branches are to follow in 2018.
