ABS BRINGS TOGETHER VESSEL DATA THROUGH NEW APP

Tuesday, July 21, 2020 

ABS has launched a new suite of fleet management and vessel compliance services powered by smart functionality and advanced analytics which, in an industry first, will be made available through the new ABS App.

Designed to anticipate client needs and provide intuitive, informed decision support, the smart functionality is an enhancement to the ABS MyFreedom client portal and can be accessed through a mobile app or text. The portal and digital tools are designed to simplify access to operational, technical and compliance fleet intelligence and all ABS Class services to manage the operating health and performance of fleets.

New functionality includes:

  • The ABS Smart Scheduler, which leverages real-time AIS data to maintain fleet compliance  said to be the industry’s only mobile survey booking tool enabling any survey, including remote surveys, to be scheduled in less than a minute, even when there is no internet access. It tracks survey status for all vessels in a fleet and then issues alerts when surveys are due.
  • Custom Checklist, which brings together port state data from all ABS-classed vessels to provide a port-specific checklist for crew and fleet managers prior to arrival at any port.
  • Fee Estimator, which provides a comparison of estimated survey fees across multiple ports.
  • Port State Control Risk, which provides customised port state control analytics by vessel or fleet.  It allows clients to view their destination’s top deficiency items and the client vessel’s matching findings from ABS class records, along with a vessel risk rating based on compliance health status.
  • International Safety Management (ISM) Findings, customised to individual vessel performance, which allows clients to view the destination port’s top ISM related deficiency items against their vessel’s matching findings from ABS class records.
  • Port-Specific External Specialists, which provides one-touch direct client connections for upcoming surveys.

Christopher J. Wiernicki, ABS Chairman, President and CEO, said: “Leveraging unprecedented access to data, we are delivering truly smart functionality that learns from the user and, with experience over time, anticipates future requirements, making it even easier to work with ABS. These are just the first of many enhancements and increased smart functionality that ABS will continue to deliver through the MyFreedom client portal. The portal brings together all of our clients’ Class needs digitally for a complete overview, so now it all clicks. Centralised and connected, it streamlines interactions with ABS, making our client experience straightforward and insightful.”

Offering enhanced risk management, compliance and operational efficiency through better informed decision making, MyFreedom delivers total fleet oversight, real-time survey status, smart scheduling, remote survey options, including annual surveys with mobile capture and collaboration, simplified access to compliance data and timely fleet certification renewals.
