ULYSSES Systems has registered strong take-up in the tanker and liquefied natural gas sectors for its Task Assistant knowledge management software.

Task Assistant helps shipmanagers tackle operating requirements such as the Oil Companies International Marine Forum’s Tanker Management and Self Assessment requirements without burdening seafarers and shore staff.

In recent weeks, K-line, Dioryx, Liquimar and Columbia Shipmanagement have all contracted to use Task Assistant.

The company says shipmanagers looking to address the complexities of improving technical management, safety and demonstrating regulatory compliance for tanker and LNG carrier operations have been quick to see the benefits.

Satoru Nakajima, director of Ulysses client Iino Marine Services, points out that "tanker management is changing. We need systems that help us demonstrate that we are always improving. Task Assistant does this for us."
