BMT Releases SMARTMOBILE
BMT SMART (BMT), a subsidiary of BMT Group, announces the launch of the SMARTMOBILE webpage optimised for smartphones and smaller tablets providing fast access to key vessel performance data.
Matthew Streeter, Product Manager at BMT SMART explains: “Smartphones are now favoured by 70% of all internet users, so we wanted our users to have the ability to access their key vessel performance data through a clear, reliable and fast mobile webpage. SMARTMOBILE presents users with a clear view of where their vessels are, which vessels are under performing and key performance data relating to speed, consumption and the current weather conditions the vessel is operating in.”
SMARTMOBILE has been designed and built from the ground up to focus on user experience, performance and reliability on a mobile device. The mobile webpage presents three views to the users, Fleet, Vessel and Maintenance. The Fleet view provides an overview of all vessels using Red, Amber Green colour coding to identify changes in performance relating to speed and consumption, hull and propeller fouling and trim.
The vessel view provides additional vessel performance data relating to the current fuel consumption, speed, cost and trim performance, as well as the wind, wave and ocean currents the vessel has operated in over the past 24 hours. The information on the vessel view helps to identify over or under performance, as well as the most likely cause of the change in performance using a modern-day alternative to the traditional noon report. The Maintenance page presents BMT SMART’s advanced maintenance KPIs providing the current status of the hull, propeller and main engine.
Peter Mantel, Managing Director at BMT SMART states: “SMARTMOBILE allows users to access fleet performance management at their fingertips. Our suite of products, consultancy and support services provides users with the optimum solutions to enable them to embrace today’s digital revolution in shipping.”
BMT continues to work on the design, functionality and user interface of the mobile site with future releases planned in its efforts to improve performance and usability.
