We started our bespoke software development in 2008 with smartPAL. smartPAL is BSM’s web-based, cloud enabled integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for ship managers and ship owners providing access to all data, functionalities and reports in one place; this unique platform allows BSM’s shore staff, seafarers and our customers to access all information regardless of location from a single system on a real time basis.

smartPAL is cloud-based as this offers flexibility, data recovery, little to no maintenance, easy access and a higher level of security. BSM will still maintain physical data and disaster recovery centres around the world to maintain data and operational integrity.

LiveFleet, a smartPAL module, provides ship owners access to near real-time operational, technical and financial information anytime, anywhere on their phones and browsers. This performance monitoring platform also provides insights into emissions, fuel consumption and engine performance for predictive maintenance.

Our business intelligence tools allow fleet managers, superintendents and other staff to drill down information on vessel operations, analysis and correlation with historical data, and to compare performance between vessels and fleets and do quick “what if” analyses.
