Mont Hope Selects DNV GL's ShipManager

Capt. Sanjay Tyagi, CEO, Mont Hope Ship Management

By Joseph R. Fonseca

Mont Hope Ship Management, a new and specialized company focusing on services for vessels engaged in energy segments, is implementing DNV GL's integrated software system ShipManager on the entire fleet in order to optimize operations and improve performance.

Efficient ship management requires integration

Mont Hope Ship Management is a new company, started in May 2015 and based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Concurrent with the start-up, they began the process of selecting a comprehensive fleet management software system to support efficient and safe operations, as well as to improve business performance.

The amount of resources needed to gather data from various sources can be challenging and inefficient. Lack of transparency makes it difficult to respond timely to critical maintenance needs, which can lead to unforeseen and costly downtime/off-hire. At first, twelve software solutions were in the running, a number that was eventually reduced to two, and finally to one: DNV GL's ShipManager. The system is running on 16 vessels, replacing many different legacy applications and Excel sheets.

"I already knew ShipManager well through my network," says CEO in Mont Hope Ship Management, Captain Sanjay Tyagi. His background in shipping over more than 30 years includes a strong IT expertise, having also worked within fleet management software. "ShipManager comes from DNV GL, and it's a mature, proven system. One takes for granted that quality of product will be good," says Captain Tyagi.

The company can now benefit from the ability to work efficiently with a small IT team. "Having an integrated system is beneficial for any shipping company, regardless of the size of the fleet. It reduces administrative work on ship and shore. It provides more reliable data. To that extent, I believe DNV GL provides the most integrated system on the market," he says.

Building system around software
Captain Tyagi points that as a completely new company, Mont Hope is building their fleet management services around the selected software. Mont Hope chose ShipManager independent of class. "We are definitely performing better than the industry standard because of a good system that brings efficiency," he says. Mont Hope's software setup includes an integrated ShipManager suite, comprising ShipManager Technical, Procurement, QHSE, Crewing, Finance and Analyzer for BI / Fleet Analytics.

"We are excited to be working with a new company specializing in the oil and gas and offshore market," says DNV GL - Software CEO, Are Føllesdal Tjønn. "Our ShipManager fleet management software is a proven solution that gives our customers the competitive edge in a tough market," he says.
