Fleet management software provider ABS Nautical Systems (ABS NS) and maritime SaaS technology company Q88 LLC have joined forces to automate compliance management for ship owners and operators. The systems are now fully integrated to streamline the management of compliance information from ship to shore so that data quality and reliability are improved, and compliance objectives are consistently met.

The ABS NS compliance management solution combined with the Q88 tanker information management platform supports a more efficient and transparent vetting compliance process for safer and more reliable operations for tankers and carriers complying with guidelines from the Oil Companies International Marine Forum (OCIMF).

Entering the certification and renewals required for compliance is a time-consuming, manual and unclear process, making it a challenge for crew and staff to get the right information into the hands of the right people at the right time. Integrating Q88 with the ABS NS compliance management solution streamlines the flow of data such as certificates, vessel particulars, qualification documents, etc. with a self-service, automated process that improves data quality, promotes information transparency and reduces the manual burden on crew members.

Stephen Schwarz, President of ABS Nautical Systems, said, "By leveraging the digital technologies of both of our companies, customers will realize the benefits of improved data quality and efficient data transfer, improving the speed and reliability of critical compliance data. We are focused on solutions that improve efficiencies for our clients. This represents another key step on the journey toward digitally transforming maritime operations."

"This integration facilitates an easy flow of information and documents between the vessels, the office and other voyage stakeholders," said Fritz Heidenreich, Founder and President of Q88 LLC.
