SVM Solutions and Technologies (Solverminds) wins Software Award for shipping at SBR TEA 2021

Its Compliance-based Mack Digital Ship Management ERP maximises productivity and efficiency in maritime activities, while contributing to Safety and conserving the environment at the same time.

SVM Solutions and Technologies’ MACK Digital Ship Management ERP bagged the Software Award for shipping during Singapore Business Review’s recently concluded Technology Excellence Awards.

The Maritime Industry has changed from being just a commercial trade vehicle with the primary goal of profiting from its voyages, to becoming a highly regulated industry. Nowadays, the need to demonstrate compliance towards Environmental, Safety, Security, Quality and Human aspects has become a strong deciding factor in the business value chain.

Moreover, technology growth outside of the maritime industry has seen huge advances in recent years. And while technology adoption in the Maritime industry may have lagged, there is a closing gap that’s happening between maritime and non-maritime industries that burdens those maritime players that are not able to keep up. Furthermore, compliance needs are also increasing faster whilst the technology platforms oriented to ship operations and management have a predominantly operational and financial led approach.

SVM Solutions and Technologies Pte Ltd, as a Solverminds Group company, adopts these changes by developing its ERP Platform MACK (Managing Content and Knowledge). Using non-traditional, compliance, transparency and human-centric approaches, the platform has been developed imbibing Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) at the foundation level to use this to maximum potential soon.

With user productivity tools such as Apps, Tasks/Notifications, Collaborative methods, Workflow, Linkages between processes and procedures, Reports and Analysis, MACK ERP provides users with all the tools to contribute towards process efficiency. Branding it to corporate themes of the respective customers ensures the digital solution blends into the company cultures and it helps greatly in penetration of corporate culture and CSR activities.

Furthermore, the correlations between many processes (e.g. Procedures, Near Miss, Best
Practice, Safety Meetings, Training and other Safety Management activities with Injuries,
Incidents, Deviations, etcetera) are extremely complex, but MACK makes these connections seamless in actual day-to-day operations for all stakeholders.

MACK, which provides companies an option to maximise efficiency, productivity and commitment towards protecting life and the environment, also extends its Artificial Intelligence analytics to the complex problem of Safety Management and Environment Protection in real-time. A combination of risk and personalised action-based approaches ensures all dimensions are studied to see the possible consequences that these activities entail.

The Technology Excellence Awards, presented by Singapore Business Review, was held via studio award presentations and video conferencing sessions throughout the second and third week of April.

This year’s nominations were judged by a panel consisting of Daryl Pereira, Head of Cyber at KPMG; Cheang Wai Keat, Partner, Consulting at Ernst & Young Advisory Pte. Ltd.; Henry Tan, Group Chief Executive Officer and Chief Innovation Officer at Nexia TS; Sivakumar Saravan, Senior Partner at Crowe Singapore; Cecil Su, Director, Head of Cybersecurity of BDO Singapore.
