BareFLEET and Helm CONNECT have been integrated on a live testing platform, prior to wider expansion to the global market.
Reygar Ltd., the leading provider of innovative remote monitoring and reporting platforms to the maritime sector, has teamed up with Canadian maritime software solutions provider Helm Operations (Helm) to integrate their respective vessel and fleet management products.
The combined offering captures and consolidates critical data via BareFLEET to provide a breakdown of vessel fuel consumption and emissions for each job and vessel activity logged in Helm CONNECT’s fleet management software. The collaboration is being trialed in operation onboard a vessel supplied by a prominent US harbor towage company, providing a live testing platform to track the performance of the integration in shaping the solution and its capabilities for wider expansion to the global market.
Rising technological advancements in data and cloud-based software is creating opportunity for workboat operators to revolutionize their vessel and fleet management processes. Data-led solutions can unlock the highest levels of technical availability for operators of commercial vessels, supplying valuable insights across fleet and crew deployment, detailed fuel consumption, engine hours and vessel performance, enabling heightened productivity while continuing to prioritize the health and safety of crews.
Helm CONNECT and BareFLEET provide a suite of software tools offering cloud-based data measurements for vessel operators on maintenance, compliance, and personnel and client management. The integrated offering has further ambitions to support data collection across multiple sources and functions in future, including measurement alarms, engine hours, crew and personnel management, planned maintenance, and other services dependent on customer requirements.
Paul Cyr, Manager of Partnerships at Helm, said: “At Helm we support maritime companies to organize their operations and optimize their business intelligence, and data is key to unlocking these efficiencies. The integration with BareFLEET will allow us to enhance our software offering with critical vessel data - complementing our fleet management system with data on engine hours, fuel consumption, and other performance management data points. We look forward to showcasing what we have achieved at the International Workboat Show this December and exploring how it evolves in practice aboard the Hercules.”
Chris Huxley-Reynard, Managing Director, Reygar, said: “As well as providing a new and improved offering to our existing customer base and network, the integration with Helm’s will allow us to increase our US presence and expand our global client base. Helm CONNECT is an excellent software and we could not be happier to work together in our aim to provide the most accurate and effective fleet management software the market has to of
