Database conversion for Bibby Pioneer

Bibby Pioneer

Share This Post

Bibby Marine Limited recently added the barge Bibby Pioneer to the fleet of vessels. Adding a barge to the fleet is one thing, integrating all systems is another thing. For such challenges Mastex Software is happy to assist to converting the database of the current PMS system to MXSuite.

Luckily Bibby Maritime Ltd uses a strong fleet management system. So adding an additional vessel to the fleet is no rocket science. However, the Bibby Pioneer (which was previously called ASV Pioneer and was operated by Landfall) was using the basic Marad planned maintenance system.

Change of software

The current software onboard could not handle all functionality that Bibby Marine Ltd requires from the software. Therefore the logic step was also to include this barge to MXSuite, next to the existing vessels. That also makes management easier. The current software was only used to manage the planned maintenance. With MXSuite, next to the planned maintenance, also certificate management will be done within the software as well as safety operations and QHSE stuff.

Together with the IT analyst of Bibby Marine Ltd, a MXSuite consultant of Mastex Software copied the entire database from the computer onboard and started investigating the data to prepare the conversion of the data.

In just a few working hours, the entire operation was completed. From getting the data from board, extracting the data from the database, converting into the MXSuite format: another smooth PMS database conversion is succeeded on time!

“Amazing thank you for this, much appreciated!”

To prevent is better than to cure: network management at the Alexander B

‘If you spend more on coffee than on antivirus, the question of when you will be hacked is more relevant than whether you will be hacked.’ I recently encountered this quote and I do believe that’s true. In the information age of nowadays you can’t be too careful when it comes to your data and privacy. That’s why, among many of the services we provide, we also take care of network management and managed security control. Because nothing is as frustrating as having network issues on board, when it should be working!

After hours: drone videos of impressive vessels

While most people rather sleep in, or later in the day, get back home as soon as possible to make dinner, we always find our CEO Peter van Driel catching a vessel moving into a sunrise or sunset. Admiring a stunning golden horizon and impressive tonnages of (cargo) vessels, trying to capture all the grandeur with his drones. Now that’s passion for maritime! For example one of the world’s largest vessels, the Danish Container Ship Matz Maersk passing Hansweert at Western Scheldt in March 2022.
